OLED iPad Rumored to Focus on Lightweight Design and 'Unrivaled' Image Quality

Apple is now producing final prototypes of iPads with OLED displays, with the device focusing on a lightweight design and improved image quality, according to ET News.

OLED iPad Pro Feature
The prototypes are reportedly being produced with Korean display partners Samsung and LG Display and allow Apple to undertake a series of tests. Apple is said to be focusing on giving the OLED iPad a lighter design and "unrivaled image quality," partly facilitated by a dry etching process that significantly reduces the weight of the display. The company is also believed to be developing a special coating to increase the display's durability, necessitated by how thin it is.

The first OLED ‌iPad‌ models are expected to include an 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The devices are widely rumored to launch in 2024.

15” iPad Pro incoming? There’s no point to reduce the weight (display panel can only go so light) unless a larger iPad is coming and Apple wants to keep the weight in check even on larger displays.

Is Jony Ive back?

Anyway, I find the current models so thin and slippery that I need a case to make it holdable.

Too thin means there’s nothing to grip!!

iPad Air Pro?
Kidding! I’m in the “drop the ‘Air’ moniker from the entire portfolio” camp - which I’m pretty sure is a camp of one. ?

But a lighter Pro would be welcomed.
