According to display supply chain analyst, Apple could launch an iPad Pro with an OLED screen as early as 2024 Ross Young.
In a tweet to his subscribers, Young – a trusted source currently at the top Appletrack rankings – claimed that “Apple will introduce a 13.3-inch OLED MacBook Air in 2024, along with its 11-inch and 12.9-inch OLED iPad Pros”.
It is not the first time that the display guru has spoken out on this subject. He previously suggested that Apple is working on a “two-stack” OLED panel. This hybrid screen technology could slim down the next iPad Pro, increase peak brightness and extend battery life (by flat panel hd).
The current 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2022) uses a Liquid Retina XDR (mini-LED) display. If it’s anything like the five-star iPad Pro (2021), it certainly delivers stunning image quality… but an OLED-carrying iPad could do even better.
As seen in some of the best TVs out there, OLED panels offer super-high contrast ratios and ‘true’ black levels. So far, Apple has limited the use of OLED displays to select iPhones and Apple Watch devices due to the high cost, but a solution has been talked about for some time.
Back in January, Korean IT site DeElec Apple tipped to — you guessed it — launch an OLED-carrying iPad Pro in 2024. The two tech giants would collaborate on a “10.86-inch OLED panel.”
Could Apple be about to place a massive order for iPad-sized OLED displays? It’s not out of the question, especially when you consider that Apple’s rumored AR/VR headset could also feature OLED screens.
