In the upcoming years, Apple is reportedly planning to add OLED panels to its portfolio of iPads. The first OLED iPad prototypes are reportedly being tested internally by Apple. Since the OLED display screen on iPads is almost three times bigger than that on more recent iPhones, the business is continually testing the new display on iPads. OLED screens often produce colors more accurately than IPS LCD ones.
OLED displays are superior to conventional LCD displays because they utilize less power relative to their size, have higher contrast, and are more responsive. Both of these are due to the fact that OLED panels, as opposed to backlit LCD screens, may turn off individual pixels to show “true black.”
This is useful for always-on screens as well, ensuring that they may be utilized effectively without having the entire panel lit up.
Apple OLED iPad Will Be Released Early 2025
Dry etching, a recent addition to the production process, involves the removal of undesirable material layers from the surface of the TFT circuit layout using gas chemicals. The OLED panel becomes lighter and thinner as a result of this procedure, which also reduces the tablets’ total footprint. Apple is also developing a unique display layer that will strengthen the panel. Apple may adopt double-stacked OLED panels with two layers of light-emitting diodes, increasing brightness output, as shown by the OLED iPad.
According to sources, the 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pros are anticipated to employ LG and Samsung’s sixth-generation OLED panels; their successors will use generation 8.5, which Apple would presumably be able to get for less money. The screens of every iPad tier will improve over the next years, with the Pro models switching from mini-LED to OLED and at least some lower-tier iPads receiving the mini-LED technology now only available on Pro models. A mass-production timeline for screens intended for second-generation devices in late 2024 might place their release sometime in 2025, given that the first OLED iPad models are reportedly expected to be on sale in 2024.
