After Apple starts producing its smartwatches and cellphones using OLED technology screens, providing consumers with definitive black, accurate colors and excellent contrast, it seems that iPads will be the brand’s next products to gain this characteristic, according to information from the southern portal. Korean The Elec.
According to the publication, it has been revealed that Apple plans a 10.8-inch iPad slated for release in 2022 and display provided exclusively by Samsung. This model is expected to be Apple’s first tablet with an OLED screen, and by the screen size we can expect it to be the successor to the current 4th generation iPad Air.
In 2023, Apple should present two more models with OLED technology screen: a smaller one with 11 inches and a larger one with 12.9 inches, identical sizes to the iPad Pro duo.
Same OLED screen, but different structures.
Still according to the The Elec, despite the same OLED technology present in the three models, Apple plans to launch the screens with different structures: the 10.8″ iPad (2022) should bet on the hard OLED panel of the LTPS type. This is the same type used in the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max – and the same one that will be used in the cheapest pair of the iPhone 13 line.
The devices planned for 2023, which we assume will be the 11″ and 12.9″ iPad Pro, must use an LTPO-type flexible OLED panel, maintaining the Pro Motion technology for variable refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. LTPO screen will be used by Apple this year on the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max.
It’s curious to see that Apple is willing to let go of the Mini-LED technology present in the 12.9″ iPad Pro shortly after announcing it as a big news. Perhaps the complaints of blooming on the screen have made Apple understand that in order to satisfy all consumers – especially the most demanding ones – it is necessary to keep to the still irreplaceable precision of the OLED.
It’s worth remembering that almost a month ago, more details emerged pointing out that Apple is preparing a redesign of the iPad Pro in 2022, offering a glass back cover, wireless charging and, most likely, MagSafe support.
