    WSJ: Apple to use Samsung retina displays on next iPad mini

    Earlier this month, there was a rumor that Apple was facing possible delays with its next-gen iPad mini due to supplier issues with an (also rumored) next generation Retina display. Now WSJ is reporting that Apple may have gotten around the problem thanks to, of all companies, Samsung. The ubiquitous "people familiar with the matter" told the journal that Cupertino originally wanted to be supplied solely by LG Display and Sharp for the high res screens. However, to ensure enough supply, Apple has reportedly been forced to resort to Samsung's display division for supply of the 7.9-inch mini's screens, as well. It bears noting that such supplier leaks are often unreliable, and as we've mentioned before, Apple frequently tests components before deciding on a final design. If it proves true, though, it would show that despite its best efforts, Apple can't make a clean break from its frequent sparring partner.
