Given the way Apple's teams work together to design software and processors/GPUs, it does beg the question [again] as to what it would take for the same focus to power Macs with Apple-designed chipsets.
Apple publicly says "no way" but the issue has to be there. Just the cost savings alone, not to mention overcoming technical limitations (Intel's LPDDR4 support history), for 20 million Macs per year could warrant the project.
"A report in September seemingly confirmed the rumors LG would be tapped for iPhone XS OLED panels —but that turned out to be not the case so far."
This is a good example of why people shouldn't believe any of these so-called research notes/anonymous sources articles.
There are so many of them, with so few being accurate.
When Apple introduced the 5.8" iPhone X reports then were that LG wouldn't be ready to supply Apple with OLED displays (for the iPhone) until 2nd half 2019 at the earliest. Now it's being reported that supply will commence 7 months earlier.
A year ago LG didn't have the capacity, or the quality required, to supply Apple, and was just then commencing construction on a new OLED production facility. One year from start to completion is wholly unrealistic.
I'm sticking with the belief that LG will get some OLED production, but not all, by 2nd half 2019. 2020/2021 is another story.

I was so fortunate to have QUALCOMM modems in my iPhones right up through iPhone X. As much as I love my Max, I’m very disappointed with the quality of the Intel modem. Apple, are you listening?
