Apple is already certifying components for the iPad 313
DigiTimes reported yesterday that Taiwan-based Radiant Opto-Electronics has landed the certification to manufacture LED backlight units for Apple. In addition to the LED backlight units, a company has also been certified for light bars. Many other manufacturers are rumored to be in the mix for certification of panels. South Korean Samsung and LG have historically supplied Apple with display panels for iPads, but certification of panels is said to be nearly complete with Taiwan-based Chimei Innolux.
