First OLED MacBook Air Reportedly In Development

Apple is reportedly getting ready to launch its first OLED MacBook Air, with Samsung Display the company tasked with developing the 13.3-inch panel.

A new report by The Elec claims that Apple is already planning to switch multiple products to the display technology, with LG Display also developing OLED displays for iPad Pro tablets.

Both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros are expected to make the move to OLED as a result. The report also notes that Samsung Display is working on its own 11-inch OLED display, suggesting that it could be responsible for some of those iPad Pro orders.

The actual release of the 13.3-inch OLED MacBook Air, which Samsung Display is developing a panel, is unclear. Apple is working on a two-year product development project prior to the mass production of finished products, and the production schedule of major components, including panels, has not materialized.

The Elec doesn’t know when the OLED MacBook Air will be released, but it’s suggested that the technology could be up to two years away.

That would possibly fit with a previous report by Display Analyst Ross Young who said that he expected Apple to launch an OLED MacBook Air as soon as 2024.

Beyond the iPad Pro and MacBook Air, Apple is also expected to launch a MacBook Pro with an OLED display in the future.
