Apple AR/VR glasses to feature micro-OLED displays: Report

Apple is working on the most advanced chips for its unannounced AR/VR headset and now a new report has claimed that the headset would feature advanced micro OLED displays. Micro-OLED displays are built directly on to chip wafers rather than a glass substrate, which results in displays that are thinner, smaller, and more power efficient, reports MacRumors.
