After a number of users reported serious cases of backlight leakage in their new iPad 2s, Apple has reportedly shifted its touchscreen purchases away from LG toward Samsung.

Taiwanese publication Digitimes is claiming Samsung out-shipped rvial LG Display four million to 3.2 million units, making Samsung the largest supplier of the 9.7in panels.

However, LG Display has supposedly fixed the problem in its sixth-generation production line and is set to resume momentum in shipping panels to Apple in the coming quarter.
