After introducing mini-LED technology into the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro, Apple is now planning to adopt OLED screens for some other iPads starting next year, according to Korean website ETNews, via MacRumors.

The publication says that Apple “confirmed” the OLED on the iPad as “the small and medium-sized OLED market is expected to enter the second phase of growth”. According to the industry on the 31st, Apple decided to apply OLED instead of Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) to some iPad models in 2022. It is reported that Apple and the display companies have agreed to the production and delivery of the units requested by the mace manufacturer.

Samsung and LG are the current OLED providers for iPhones that use this technology, and the report believes that some iPads will also feature an OLED display from 2022, probably also provided by these companies.

In March, well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the 2022 iPad Air will feature an OLED display, going in the same direction now pointed out by the Korean website.

At that time, Kuo pointed out that while Apple would adopt Mini-LED screens for the new iPad Pro, other tablet models would switch to OLED screens, starting with the iPad Air next year. Mini-LED panels offer similar benefits to OLEDs, such as deeper blacks – since the backlight is based on several small LEDs.

According to the analyst, Apple has no plans to bring OLED to its productivity devices because of burn-in concerns, which may be more noticeable by users who work with the same software for hours.

Another reason to use OLED instead of mini-LED on other tablets is cost. Unlike the iPhone, in which Apple had to use a custom OLED panel folded at the bottom, the OLED screens the company will adopt on the iPad are flat. This means that the cost of the new panels will be close to what Apple currently pays for each LCD panel used in the iPad Air, but with a considerable increase in quality.
