iPad Pro With OLED Display Rumored for Launch in 2024

Apple can be expected to announce 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models with OLED displays in 2024, according to display analyst Ross Young.

iPad Pro OLED Feature 2
In a tweet, Young said both models of the ‌iPad Pro‌ will come with OLED displays in the early half of 2024. The new M2 ‌iPad Pro‌ models announced yesterday include no display changes, including the lack of a mini-LED display on the smaller 11-inch model. Apple introduced a mini-LED display on the 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ in April 2021, and despite rumors it would also come to the 11-inch size, that did not happen.

Compared to mini-LED technology, the OLED displays Apple is reportedly planning to use will include a two-stack tandem structure, in which there are two red, green, and blue emission layers, allowing for increased brightness. OLED displays are also more power efficient, which could help extend battery life.

For now, we'll have to bear with the most diluted iPad lineup ever.

Or maybe we're lucky to have choice between the iPad Quadra, Centris, Performa, LC and Classic.

My god, how do I become an Apple analyst/rumour spreader?

- Guys! I’ve just heard that Apple will update the iMac in 2023 or 2024.

- Also, I’ve seen schematics of the Mac Pro, *checks notes*, it will be the fastest and most powerful yet.

- Apple has been putting a team together to work on VR/AR glasses. They will be released at some point in the future and Apple will employ a sales technique where it asks you for money and in return gives you one product.

Not sure why that is taking forever! Is not that OLED display tech is not matured enough or something.
Actually it isn't, but it's getting close. The problem with OLED is brightness, or rather a lack of it. That is why Apple went mini-LED. If you look at the tablets or laptops that use OLED now with retina quality, they tend to top out at 400 nits, way too dim for Apple's requirements.

The problem with OLEDs that would meet Apple's brightness and pixel density requirements have a tendency to wrinkle. They are looking to Samsung and LG to perfect a different OLED technology that doesn't have that drawback. Until that happens, Apple's sticking with mini-LED. Note Samsung's own OLED tablets are very dim.

My sentiments exactly. Got a 2018 12.9 iPad Pro and gonna hang onto it for a bit longer. Not impressed at all. Maybe if they added landscape cam but for now I'm fine.
