I guess, Apple is making it but not producing it?

they’re designing the displays, like they do with their miniLEDs or their chips. (though i’d consider this an even more custom effort than the latter, since they probably have to teach and set up with suppliers how to even produce the displays vs using existing fabs). They’ve been researching and prototyping these displays for nigh a decade

I am aware about their decade long investment but if they’re supplying (or sourcing) the machine (like GT Advanced Technologies), I suppose it makes it different that the new (Chinese) partner wouldn’t have any R&D of their own and work for any other party outside Apple.
