Apple’s first OLED iPad is expected to enter into production this year, however, according to sources, the Cupertino giant will be launching its OLED iPad in 2023. The source also confirmed that the new OLED iPad will provide a massive boost to the company’s overall market.
“Looking out to 2025, DSCC has raised its OLED revenue forecast by 11% to $60.6B helped again by higher volumes in smartphones as well as increased penetration into all three IT markets – tablets, notebook PCs, and monitors. In tablets, Apple’s entry into the OLED tablet market expected in 2023 will boost the tablet market to over $1B in 2024.”
The previous revelation from DSCC’s Ross Young about Apple’s product launch timelines has been excellent till now. His colleague, Naranjo, on the other hand, made predictions that are not parallel to a previous report. That report stated that the Cupertino giant’s first OLED iPad launch would happen in 2022 and not in 2023. The company is expected to transition from LCD to OLED with the iPad Air 5, or a later model product and it will also sport a 10.9-inch screen.
Reports also indicate that Apple may not incorporate a mini-LED to the iPad Air-line, though it got introduced with the M1 iPad Pro. It’s also a hot topic that, the mini-LED on the premium tablet causes a blooming effect due to the lack of dimming zones. Analysts have suggested that this ‘halo’ effect could be mitigated with the use of OLED technology, and Apple could be testing on a tablet prototype this very moment.
However, OLED will be advantageous for Apple’s iPad, but the display will come at a cost. The installation of OLED displays will increase the production cost of Apple’s devices. For now, the company is limiting the production of OLED to smaller devices like the iPhone and Apple Watch.
