Apple will launch two new models of iPads that use OLED panels in 2023, according to a report by TheElec. The article says the first will arrive next year.
The 2020 OLED iPad will reportedly have a 10.86-inch OLED screen. In 2023, Apple will launch an 11-inch OLED iPad and a 12.9-inch OLED iPad, according to TheElec.
The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) thinks Apple is investigating OLED iPads. However, I think the first one to get such a display will be the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, not a smaller model.
Then, of course, Apple will have to decide if OLED displays are worth a possible price increase over mini-LEDs. The tech giant introduced 12.9-inch iPad Pros with the latter tech this year. And Mac laptops with mini-LED screens are anticipated to arrive soon.
OLED may be better than LCD when it comes to brightness and color ratios, but the latter is more cost-effective option. Mini-LED aims to offer the best of both worlds.
For example, the 2021 iPad Pro with Mini-LED technology can achieve 1,000 nits of full-screen brightness with 1,600 nits of specular highlights, with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and wide DCI-P3 color gamut. Packaged into a design that’s just 6.4mm thin.
