Apple plans to integrate OLED display technology into nine new devices by 2027, according to a new report from the Taiwanese government. ET News.
Following the introduction of OLED displays on both iPad Pro models next year, Apple reportedly plans to bring the technology to the iPad mini and iPad Air in 2026. While the iPad Air will retain a 10.9-inch screen, the iPad mini screen will increase in size from 8.3 to 8.7 inches. In 2027, Apple will bring OLED display technology to the 12.9-inch iPad Air model, which is expected to debut with an LCD screen early next year.
Apple apparently plans to use a low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) OLED panel for the iPad Pro and a single-stack low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) panel for the iPad mini and iPad Air, meaning ProMotion for refresh rates of up to 120Hz will remain exclusive to high-end models.
In 2027, Apple will upgrade the OLED panels of the iPad Pro to a next-generation panel with improved light efficiency via Color Filter on Encapsulation (CoE), which is said to reduce power consumption by approximately 20%. Using a color filter could also allow Apple to implement under-display camera technology on the iPad for the first time.
In 2025, Apple would bring OLED to the 16-inch MacBook Pro, followed by the 14-inch model in 2026. The 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air models will also move from LCD to OLED in 2026.
The benefits of OLED include increased brightness, higher contrast ratio, greater color accuracy, and lower power consumption compared to existing models with LCD panels. Apple already uses OLED displays for iPhone and Apple Watch models, with the exception of the iPhone SE. The report notes that OLED panels are also thinner and lighter than LCD screens, providing particular advantages to the “iPad.”
