Instead Apple have turned to LG and Samsung to build the new retina LED displays after Sharp failed to impress the iPad designers.
Sharp was initially chosen as the preferred choice by Apple when it was muted that a new iPad would be constructed with a view to releasing the tablet by spring 2012.
However, Apple have since taken it upon themselves to appoint LG and Samsung as the new LED display screen constructors.
How poorly Sharp did when failing to cut the mustard with Apple is a point open to debate, however their exploits have seen Apple turn to a company against whom they are still fighting law suits against across the world.
Website 9to5mac originally released the news, of which Apple claimed Sharp ‘failed to pass Apple’s approval process for mass production.’
It was believed that Sharp’s only fault was in being unable to guarantee the volume of demand that Apple wanted.
Production and manufacturing of the new display is more pertinent than ever for Apple, with the iPad 3 expected to offer the consumer greater resolution when it is eventually launched.
The detail of the display and specific lighting behind the display already means that the new iPad is expected to be thicker than the earlier models which are presently available on the market.
It is expected that there will be 65 million LCD panels created for the new generation of iPads in 2012.
