14 And 16-Inch MacBook Pros Unlikely To Get OLED Displays Until 2026

Apple’s hugely popular 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pros won’t be getting new OLED displays until 2026. That’s according to display analyst Ross Young.

Young has proven to be accurate in his predictions of new Apple devices based on their display technology to date, and a new tweet says that OLED technology won’t come to the MacBook Pro lineup for a few more years yet.

Young was sharing a report by Reuters that said Samsung Display had invested $3.1 billion in OLED production in order to get ready for Apple’s MacBook Pro upgrades in 2026.

Young also said that the first OLED Mac is likely to be the MacBook Air with a slightly smaller 13.4-inch display. The current LCD MacBook Airs come with a 13.6-inch display, although it is unlikely that there will be much difference in the actual usable area of the display. It’s already been reported that Samsung Display has started to work on OLED panels for such a device.

If Samsung Display is the company behind the new products it’ll be the go-to for a lot of Apple hardware. The OLED panels for the 11-inch iPad Pro, MacBook Air, and two MacBook Pros are all expected to come from Samsung Display.

With Apple expected to release new MacBook Pros every year, all using new versions of its own chips, it remains to be seen if a change in industrial design will be held back until that 2026 display refresh.
