Apple plans to bring OLED displays to its larger devices after first adding it to iPhone X and Apple Watch. According to display industry consultant Ross Young, who has shared several accurate information about Apple devices in the past, Apple plans to release OLED versions of the new 13-inch MacBook Air, 11-inch iPad Pro, and 12.9-inch models in 2024. inch to introduce iPad Pro.
Young writes in a tweet to his Super Follower subscribers, “Apple will introduce a 13.3″ OLED MacBook Air in 2024, along with its 11″ and 12.9″ OLED iPad Pros.” He states that MacBook Air and iPad 2024 Pro models will be Apple’s first major devices to ship with OLED displays.
This isn’t Young’s first time talking about making MacBook Air and iPad Pro with OLED screens. He first hinted at the arrival of the OLED screen on the iPad Pro in June this year and later in October. Only this time his tweet is about the screen sizes. It includes the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros and the 13-inch MacBook Air.
The current 11-inch iPad Pro and the MacBook Air use LCD screens, while the 12.9-inch iPad Pro models come with minus LED screen technology.
Young also previously reported that all three devices will adopt a “two-stack tandem” structure. He says this will help boost brightness, improve screen durability and reduce power consumption by about 30 percent compared to the regular OLED panels.
Earlier reports also state that Samsung could be the supplier of these OLED panels. Samsung, the main supplier of OLED panels to Apple for its iPhone 14, is reportedly planning to set up a new OLED display production line in South Korea to produce large OLED panels for notebooks and tablets. The South Korean giant will most likely supply these large displays to Apple for its 2024 MacBook and iPad Pros.
OLED panels provide high quality displays. They feature self-emissive pixels and do not require a backlight, hence the energy efficiency. They offer improved contrast ratio and color performance. Apple’s move to OLED is to be expected, as the company is already using this technology in its latest iPhone and Watch ranges.
