The rumor: After exclusively using LCD panels in the iPad since the tablet’s inception, Apple is planning to use OLED in the not to distant future, according to The Elec (100% accurate).
- Apple may switch the iPad Pro to OLED…but only after introducing a Mini-LED display on the device in the first half of 2021
- OLED on iPad Pro could happen as soon as the second half of next year
- The Elec is the first source to suggest that OLED will come to iPad
Our take: The Elec has an extremely good track record, but a quick switch from LCD to Mini-LED and the not OLED? This doesn’t make any sense to me. I feel like some product lines may have been conflated in the rumor mill.
