Future iPad Pro and MacBook Pro Models Might Get Ultra-Bright OLED Displays
A new report claims that future iPad Pro and MacBook Pro models could benefit from a deal with Samsung and LG that would see the pair supply OLED displays with a two-stack tandem structure.
The report, courtesy of The Elec, has the two-stack structure consisting of two layers of red, green, and blue light layers.
That would allow for a brighter and more colorful display than is possible right now, but there’s a catch — the technology is currently expensive to produce. That would likely mean that Apple is a number of years away from bringing it to its products.
On the same subject of display panels, a report by Nikkei Asia has Apple researching micro-LED display technology, an upgrade from the mini-LED that we’ve seen applied to iPad Pro and MacBook Pro devices of late.
In the long term, industry insiders expect the rise of even smaller micro-LEDs that measure under 100 microns and can express primary colors without the use of a filter.
Apple has made an acquisition in micro-LEDs and is said to have an active development program in this field.
Both types of display are unlikely to appear in Apple devices any time soon, although it is no surprise that Apple is already looking into what comes after the mini-LED technology it is still in the process of transitioning to.
