Apple to Switch to Glass-Film Touch Solution for Apple Watch?

Details of what we else can expect are scarce.

The Apple Watch Series 2 came with significant improvements over its predecessor and its looks like according to the new rumor, Apple Watch Series 3 is expected to be a touch above the rest, assuming the following information turns out to be true.

The new display comes after TPK Holding, which has been a supplier of touch panels with two glass pieces for the Apple Watch, is considering halting its production for the devices after it was "unable to hike yield rates" for touch on lens (TOL) touch panels to a "reasonable level", industry sources told DigiTimes.

TPK Holding is said to be planning to focus on touch panels for smartphones with OLED, giving up production of touch panels for the Apple Watch. This time, however, it'll use a glass film (G/F) touch solution instead of the same old TOL.

Apple launched the Apple Watch series 2 previous year along with the new iPhones. The original Apple Watch was replaced after nearly 18 months with Apple Watch Series 2, and a fall 2017 launch for the Series 3 models would come after about 12 months.

If this is accurate, Apple may source the touch panels to either Biel Crystal or General Interface Solution.
