Apple iPad models with OLED displays are expected to go official in 2024. Currently, the Cupertino company has agreed to construct panels for the forthcoming 12.9-inch iPad Pro and MacBook Pro along with Samsung and LG. Apple is also considering bringing the technology out to its stores. However, screens available on the new MacBook and iPad devices are expected to be improved due to improved weather.
According to DigiTimes, Apple has signed up with Taiwan SMT to implement hybrid OLED displays in future iPad models. The Taiwan SMT would reportedly complete the SMT process for mini-LED backlighting of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and MacBook Pro. The hybrid OLED technology is said to combine both rigid and flexible panel materials.
Taiwan SMT has reportedly been financially supported by Apple. According to reports, the company would help expand its production lines by utilizing dedicated hardware for mini-LED deposition.
There have been many speculations about the future OLED iPad for a while now. Earlier reports claim that Apple is developing the final prototypes of iPad with OLED displays with its domestic display partners - Samsung and LG.
The future iPad models are expected to include a sleek design and improved image quality. Apple is reportedly using the dry etching process, which involves chemically eliminating unnecessary components while making a thin-film transistor (TFT) circuit pattern for the first time. The display may be etched to make it thinner and lighter. This approach might reduce the cost of iPad models.
Apple is expected to launch its MacBook and iPad Pro models with OLED displays sometime in 2024. The company is expected to develop its new 13.3-inch MacBook with the OLED display, along with the rumoured 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models. The three devices are expected to maintain a longer life expectancy alongside increased battery consumption. The new screen might also provide an increased variable refresh rate between 1120Hz, depending on the low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO).
