Soon after the launch of the mini tablet, a teardown performed by iFixit revealed that Samsung is the provider for the screens, despite the fact that it was rumored that Apple had dropped the Korean manufacturer for this kind of components.

However, Digitimes reports now that LG Display and AU Optronics provide most of these components, with LG supplying most units to Apple.

The site writes:

“LG Display (LGD) is still the largest supplier of panels used in Apple’s recently-launched iPad mini, as AU Optronics (AUO) continues to suffer from poor yields in the production of panels for the devices, according to industry sources.”

Due to these issues, “industry observers” estimate that iPad mini shipments will drop from 10 million units to 6-8 million units by the end of the year.

Market watchers believe Cupertino could launch a next-generation iPad mini with Retina display in the second half of 2013.
