Apple to launch the first iPad with OLED screen as early as next year

    Last April, Apple changed the screen technology of the new 12.9″-inch iPad Pro to the mini-LED. This technology aims to mimic the advantages of an OLED screen, but at a much more affordable price.

    The real iPad with OLED screen is closer than imagined. According to a new report from Digitimes, it will be in 2022 that Apple will present its first tablet with this wonderful screen.

    Apple has made an agreement on production and supplying with Korean OLED manufacturers for the next iPad's OLED display. Starting 2022, Apple will feature OLED displays in select iPad models. Samsung Display and LG Display is expected to work with Apple.

    An even better and more efficient screen

    The source points out that the smaller models will be the first to show this technology on their screen. However, this detail makes us a little reticent, as the most likely model would be the next generation iPad Pro.

    As we saw this year with the mini-LED technology, and taking into account Apple's usual strategy, it will make more sense for the brand to incorporate this technology into its model. premium. It would be a new factor contributing for the user to upgrade to the new model.

    With OLED technology, Apple would take a significant step forward in the quality of its tablets. An OLED screen illuminates the pixels individually, which means a better contrast and an even better autonomy, since it lights up only the pixels necessary for the moment.

    Samsung and LG to help Apple transition to OLED

    Practically certain is the fact that Apple uses South Korean technology to provide this component. As the report points out, the manufacture of these OLED panels will be the responsibility of Samsung Display and LG Display.

    Note that these will also be the companies in charge of the production and development of the LTPO screens for the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max. Therefore, it makes perfect sense for them to also develop the same component for the future iPad's with OLED screens.

    However, producing the screen of a smartphone is not the same as producing the similar for a tablet. The latter is much larger, which means that the same production lines cannot be used.

    To fulfill Apple's orders, South Korean companies may have to create new production lines capable of producing on a large scale. In that sense, it will not be surprising that the price of the iPad with OLED screen goes up again.
