Apple acquires LuxVue, maker of advanced LED displays

Apple snagged a startup that makes low-power microLED-based displays, TechCrunch reports.

LuxVue Technology, a California-based company, has raised over $43 million in funding, including a recent $25.2 million series C round last year. Investors include Kleiner Perkins and iD Ventures America.

LuxVue also filed several patents on micro-LED technology last year, according to a post on PatentDocs. Sources told TechCrunch that Apple bought the company to boost its hardware.
