According to a report Apple is rumored to be working on an OLED iPad variant for release in early 2022, with the company also considering integration of the display technology in high-end iPad Pro and MacBook Pro models.
Manufacturing of the first OLED iPad will begin in the fourth quarter of 2021 ahead of a release in early 2022, sources said.
Beyond the rumored 10.9-inch iPad model, Apple is reportedly investigating OLED versions of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and “16- to 17-inch MacBook Pro,” both of which would debut next year. The company has not made a final decision to move forward with production of either device, the report said.
Today’s report follows industry scuttlebutt referencing Apple’s anticipated transition away from LCD to new display technologies. The iPad Pro, for example, was in November rumored to ship with OLED screens this year.
