SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea's LG Display Co Ltd <034220.KS> said on Wednesday it swung to profit in the third quarter, helped by a weaker won.

The Apple Inc (AAPL.O) supplier posted operating profit of 140 billion won ($123.2 million), beating an average forecast of 79 billion from 10 analysts, and compared to a 228 billion won loss in the second quarter.
