All-new OLED iPad Pro rumored to be announced next year
Apple’s first OLED iPad Pro is again rumored to be unveiled next year, with a new report by ET News suggesting that a supplier has already started developing displays for the new devices, which will likely debut ahead of an OLED MacBook Pro in 2026.
The report, via MacRumors, notes how OLED panels for a 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro are now in the development phase ahead of new 14-inch and 16-inch panels for a future MacBook Pro, with the report echoing many previous insights that claim that Apple will launch its first OLED iPad beginning next year.
As it stands, Apple sells the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with a mini-LED display, and the 11-inch iPad Pro with a traditional LCD display, with Apple keeping the mini-LED display technology exclusive to the largest model in the lineup.
It has been reported that Samsung Display is preparing to open an all-new production line for OLED iPad models.
In general, OLED displays offer a better viewing experience over LED thanks to several advantages in display quality including a larger color range and high contrast levels, better handling of darkness and lighting precision, and fast response times.
