Early Tests Show Apple’s M4 iPad Pro with OLED Has Inferior Battery Life Compared to M1 mini-LED Version

One of the key changes in the newest iterations of both the 11-inch and 13-inch M4 iPad Pro involves the implementation of Tandem OLED technology. Specifically, it is highlighted that the novelty of these panels marks the first consumer devices equipped with this technology. Despite the expected advantage of better brightness and richer colors in the display, the most significant advantage will be the longer duration of this panel.

More About Apple M4 iPad Pro OLED Battery Life

 A longer lifespan was already anticipated in OLED, but one of the recent tests still indicates that with the implementation of Tandem OLED, battery duration slightly falls behind what is considered the worst performance of M1 with mini-LED. As the test results by YouTuber Dave2D show, who was provided with review units of both the 11-inch and 13-inch M4 iPad Pro: Contrary to assumptions, transitioning from mini-LED to OLED did not yield better battery life.

The difference in runtime between the new and old generation of Apple’s latest tablet might be negligible, but it is essential to consider it because of the significant improvements made in the latest version. During the Netflix stream with the screen on 250 nits of brightness, the 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro with mini-LED led the competition by lasting 9 hours and 33 minutes.

It was closely followed by the 11-inch M4 iPad Pro that lasted for 9 hours and 29 minutes while the bigger version of the two lasted 9 hours and 11 minutes. The results were expected due to the larger screen that consumes more energy as observed from the Netflix stream. The same outcome was observed in the maximal brightness test whereby the M1 had lasted more than the smaller one.

On the contrary, at full brightness within the Genshin Impact loop test, the more portable M4 iPad Pro provided more battery life than the M1 Variant, running for 4 hours and 25 minutes, while the 13-inch one was able to work for 4 hours and 12 minutes. Besides, notwithstanding the fact that the M4 iPad Pro was unable to provide long battery life when streaming videos, it could make up for it when spending on gaming. Overall, either device shows slight differences in battery life. Thus, some purchasers may find them dissimilar, as well as M1 iPad Pro owners. Nevertheless, this technology could be called the future of media consumption, without any doubt.


  1. Why did Apple switch to OLED technology in the M4 iPad Pro models?

    Apple likely adopted OLED technology to offer users benefits such as higher brightness, richer colors, and longer display lifespan compared to traditional LCD or mini-LED panels.

  2. How significant are the battery life differences between the M4 iPad Pro with OLED and the M1 version with mini-LED?

    While there are differences in battery life between the two models in certain usage scenarios, the variations are relatively minor and may not be noticeable to the average user in day-to-day use.
