iPad Pro will transition to OLED display in 2024, reconfirms report

For a while, it has been reported that Apple is planning to transition the iPad Pro lineup to OLED displays. A new report by Mark Gurman from Bloomberg reconfirms the plan and states that the first-generation iPad Pro with OLED display would debut in 2024.

The current iPad lineup features LDC displays including the 11-inch iPad Pro (4th generation). Only the 12.9-inch iPad Pro features a mini-LED display with ProMotion technology. 

Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) tech uses more LEDs to deliver a self-illuminating display for improved image quality with brighter colors, faster motion, and higher contrast than LCD screens which produce light from a backlighting unit.

The 2024 iPad Pro will feature a new design and OLED display

Currently, Apple uses OLED displays in iPhone and Apple Watch models. Commenting on possible upgrades coming to the iPad line in this latest newsletter, Gurman reiterated that the tech company would revamp iPad Pro models with a new design and advanced display tech next year.

He also mentioned that the iPad mini and iPad Air will not gain any notable upgrades this year, along with iPad Pro.

I don’t see any major updates coming in 2023 to the entry-level models, the iPad mini or the Air. The iPad Pro for sure isn’t getting anything of note this year. Instead, look for a major iPad Pro revamp next spring, complete with an updated design and OLED screens for the first time.

Previously, Bloomberg said that Apple would replace the iPad Pro’s aluminum back with a glass casing and introduce MagSafe wireless charging support in 2022. Now, the publisher expects those changes in 2024 models. Rumor mills also claim that both 11-inch and 12.9-inch Pro models would gain OLED displays.

It is also reported that Apple would launch OLED MacBook in 2024 as well. The high-end MacBook Pro models feature mini-LED displays.
