According to a report by Taiwanese supply chain publication DigiTimes (via MacRumors), Apple plans to launch iPad and MacBook models with OLED display in the upcoming year of 2022.
Step by Step Apple has incorporated OLED display in its devices starting with the Apple watch in 2015. Since then, the iPhone X has got one and now the entire iPhone 12 lineup has an OLED display.
iPads and MacBooks have continued to use LCDs simply due to the fact that large OLED displays are expensive to manufacture. But this may change in the upcoming years as Apple shifts to OLED displays for its big screens with the first probably being a 10.9-inch iPad variant.
Among these rumors, Apple reportedly plans on releasing iPad and MacBook models with mini-LED display this year. Now the only feasible reason Apple intends to change displays in such a short period is marketing for different price points. DigiTimes says that the two display technologies will exist side-by-side, "each targeting different customer groups."
“A number of sources including DigiTimes have indicated that a 12.9-inch iPad Pro with a mini-LED display is coming in the first half of this year, and DigiTimes says 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models coming in the second half of the year will also adopt mini-LED.”, MacRumors reported.
Apple’s exact plans cannot be decrypted but OLED displays will gradually make it to Apple devices in the upcoming year or two.
