Apple recently announced new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models with the M2 chip. Rumors for future models have already started heating up. According to a new report, both variants in the lineup will gain OLED displays in 2024.
Future iPad Pro models expected to gain power-efficient OLED displays
The 12.9-inch M1 and M2 iPad Pro models come with a mini-LED display, called the Liquid Retina XDR display by Apple, whereas the 11-inch model features a Liquid Retina (LCD) display.
Young is back at it with a new prediction. In a tweet, the analyst said that both 11-inch and 12.9-inch variants of the iPad Pro will come with OLED displays in 2024.
Sorry that I was right about the displays not changing on the new iPad Pros…flex…:) 2024 we will see OLEDs on both…
Several Apple devices already use mini-LED displays and OLED would be the logical step after that. The OLED tandem stack Apple plans to reportedly use in the OLED iPads will also major improvements across the board. It will improve the brightness of the displays, increase their lifespan and improve power consumption by around 30%, Young has previously said.
Furthermore, the displays will also feature LPTO for a variable refresh rate ranging from 1Hz to 120Hz. A variable refresh rate makes tasks more fluid and helps to preserve battery life.
The OLED panels for the 2024 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models are expected to be supplied by LG Display and Samsung. These panels will continue using Gen 6 OLED production lines.
