According to a report from The Elec , Apple is developing a few new iPad models using OLED screens, with a launch date as early as 2022. Previously, this information was also posted in March by ” co” Ming-Chi Kuo, who specializes in making accurate predictions about Apple’s product lines.
The source said the first OLED iPad will have a 10.86-inch screen, most likely to be part of the iPad Air line because it has the same screen size as the current iPad Air. Besides, Apple is also said to launch 11-inch and 12.9-inch OLED iPads in 2023, of course these are two iPad Pro.
It is known that Apple will use rigid OLED on the iPad Air, while future iPad Pro models may be equipped with flexible OLED screens. In theory, flexible OLED would allow manufacturers to create displays with thinner bezels because display components can be bent. Previously, Apple has used this technique on iPhones since 2017, with the first product being the iPhone X.
Light spread on iPad Pro M1 using mini-LED screen.
Switching to OLED screens sounds interesting, but also somewhat unreasonable, because up to now, Apple has only released one iPad Pro using a mini-LED screen.
By comparison, it can be said that OLED is superior to mini-LED in that each pixel is individually illuminated. Meanwhile, mini-LED has larger illumination areas, so light spread may be encountered when displaying certain content. However, the downside of OLED is its relatively poor viewing angle and susceptibility to burn-in. Mini-LED panels can generally achieve higher peak brightness than OLED.
