Korea IT News reported that a domestic supplier like LG or Samsung has received orders for OLED panel development ranging from 10 to 16 inches. They said Apple will likely feature OLED displays on the iPad and then on the MacBook lineup. As micro-LED technology is still in development, Apple will transition to OLED technology first.
Korea IT News said: “Apple ordered a domestic display company to develop two types of OLED panels for iPad and two types of OLED for MacBook when summing up the reports from the industry including Stone Partners on the 18th. The specific types of panels are 10.86 inches and 12.9 inches for the iPad, and 14 inches and 16 inches for the MacBook. The domestic display companies and related parts and material companies began to develop the panels with the start of the official project. An insider familiar with the subject said, “There are various panel development from 10 inches to 16 inches is in progress.”
The 10.86-inch and 12.9-inch displays are the same size as the current iPad Pro, and the 14-inch and 16-inch displays are the same size as the current MacBook Pro displays. The transition is expected to be complete by 2024 for the iPad and 2026 for the MacBook, according to Korea IT News.
