It seems “increasingly likely” that Apple will release a new 13-inch MacBook and iPad Pro with OLED displays in 2024, according to display industry analyst Ross Young.
In a tweet reserved for his Super Followers on Twitter, analyst Ross Young announced that Apple was preparing to switch to OLED on several of its devices by 2024, including a future 13-inch MacBook and an iPad. Pro.
This is not the first time that Ross Young has mentioned the arrival of an iPad Pro with an OLED screen. Already last year, the firm Display Supply Chain Consultants announced that Apple will release an OLED iPad in 2023, after favoring LCD screens for several years now. On its most high-end tablet, the 12.9-inch iPad, Apple adopted a screen with mini-LED technology.
As a reminder, the latter makes it possible to better manage the backlight zones, which not only makes it possible to better manage the contrast, but also to improve the maximum brightness of the tablets. However, OLED offers an infinite contrast ratio. In addition, it eliminates blooming, these luminous halos found on LCD panels. By 2024, both 11 and 12.9-inch models could switch to OLEDthus rivaling Samsung’s premium tablets.
A 13-inch MacBook with an OLED screen would arrive by 2024
While it has been several years since laptops began to adopt OLED screens, including the recent Specter x360 ultrabook from HP or the Zenbook S13 OLED that we were able to test at the beginning of the month. According to information from Ross Young, Apple would work to catch up on its competitors, since it would now consider unveiling a 13-inch MacBook with an OLED display by 2024.
As on its iPad Pro, Apple has favored Mini-LED technology on its recent 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros, but should unveil a new, smaller model within two years with an OLED screen. According to Ross Young, it could be a MacBook Air, but Apple could change its plans by then. All devices should adopt LTPO technologywhich allows you to dynamically vary the refresh rate from 1 Hz to 120 Hz depending on the content displayed.
