Apart from the iPhone SE, all Cupertino company smartphones are now equipped with OLED panels. But that transition has not yet happened on iPads. However, the California giant has been considering the issue for a while and the project appears to be maturing.

Apple is currently using its own mini-LED alternative, which features three of its flagship products: the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro. A technology that has also proven itself compared to LCD, by offering a better brightness, a more pronounced contrast and compatibility with HDR. All this while supporting ProMotion and offering image refresh rates up to 120 Hz. However, it seems that the California giant is reluctant to democratize the mini-LED on a wider range of products.

An inevitable technology?

According to the South Korean newspaper ET NewsiPad Oled will currently be in prototype mode and the launch is scheduled for 2024.

This type of screen in particular makes it possible to take advantage of an almost infinite contrast, much deeper blacks and to avoid the halo effect (flowering). It can also have design consequences. Light emitting diodes work without backlighting (unlike LCD and Mini-Led), switching to Oled generally makes it possible to offer a thinner and lighter product. Ideal for a tablet, which is mainly used for viewing photos and videos, but which should remain as portable as possible.

The competitor, Samsung, has already switched to Oled for some time on its most advanced tablets, such as the Galaxy Tab S8 +. The South Korean has become a must on the subject, and also provides a good deal of the Oled panels for the iPhone along with the LG Display.

A long-term project

The iPad OLED project is not new. However, Apple has apparently struggled to agree with Samsung to start production of larger screens. However, if the demand from such a player becomes more insistent, it may pressure the main suppliers to invest in new production lines for medium-sized plates.

The article specifies that Apple apparently intends to use its know-how in this already proven technology. The company would like to use a dry etching process that especially allows for further reducing the thickness and weight of the screen. In addition, work is currently underway on a new coating that will increase the plate’s resistance and service life.

If we are still to take this information with a grain of salt, we understand that the idea has come a long way. Thus, iPad enthusiasts could take advantage of the most advanced display technology available today. It is still unknown whether this will have a significant impact on the tariffs used. Answer around 2024.
