In recent news, Apple has reportedly canceled off its plans to release an updated iPad Air with an OLED display. The Cupertino giant was expected to release its new iPad Air next year however it has now been delayed due to concerns around the quality and costs of the product.
It was first reported in March that Apple had an iPad Air with an OLED display in the pipeline for next year. But, it was yesterday that sources confirmed of Apple taking this decision. Since Apple has canceled the plans to release the device the reason behind this is touted to be due to costs and performance not meeting the company’s expectations.
Previously sources had stated that the 11-inch iPad Pro would be receiving a mini-LED display next year, and but now, we are hearing reports that the Cupertino-based tech giant will be focusing on [the] iPad line in 2022.
Currently, only the 12.9-inch iPad Pro includes the newer mini-LED technology and a very important reason as to why the company has canceled off its OLED iPad Air is that it may have been detrimental to the sales of the forthcoming 11-inch iPad Pro with a mini-LED display.
While Apple plans to stick with an LCD for the iPad Air, it’s also being reported that the Cupertino-California-based tech company is continuously researching and developing newer display technologies for the iPad line. A report last week suggested that Apple and Samsung had abandoned their joint plans to develop an OLED display for a forthcoming updated 10.9-inch iPad Air.
