Technology stocks fell for the first time this week, with shares of tech companies in the S&P 500 slipping about 0.3% just before the closing bell on Thursday.

In company news, American depository shares of LG Display Co ( LPL ) have recouped all but a small slice of its prior decline Thursday in the wake of reports the South Korean manufacturer failed to receive orders from Apple ( AAPL ) for iPhone displays for the first time in nearly a decade.

Instead, Apple will be working with Samsung's display unit on its new iPhone 8 smartphone models, according a report in the South Korea daily Maeil. LG Display lost the order because it did not respond fast enough to the migration from liquid crystal display to organic light-emitting diode technology, according to the report.

Mobile displays has accounted for a significant portion of LG Display's revenue in recent year, growing to 27.9% of its $24.3 billion in total revenue during 2015, the latest 12-month period that complete figures for the company were available.

LPL shares were down just 0.4% at $13.29 apiece shortly before tonight's closing bell, improving on a prior slide to a session low of $13.05 a share.
