IPad models could use OLED screens next year

According to a report by ETNews, after the introduction of mini-LED technology in the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro, Apple is now planning to use OLED displays for other iPads starting next year.

According to the report, Apple has confirmed that the iPad will come with an OLED display as the small and medium-sized OLED screen market is expected to enter its second phase of growth.

Apple is number one in the tablet market. With the shift from iPad to OLED, the market for small and medium-sized OLED screens developed via smartphones is gaining new growth points.

Investments in small and medium-sized OLEDs, which have been put off for some time, are likely to revive. Hence, the revival of manufacturing industries such as materials, parts, and equipment has also attracted attention.

Apple iPad:

Apple has decided to use OLED as a replacement for some LCD screens on the iPad 2022 models and has signed a manufacturing and supply agreement with the display company.

OLED displays for the new iPad could be provided by Samsung and LG.

Both companies offer OLEDs for the Apple iPhone and are developing OLEDs for the iPad.

This is the first time that Apple has introduced OLED displays on regular iPads. Apple has been using LCD screens for a while.

When OLED screens outperformed LCDs in terms of image quality, weight and design due to technological advancements, it was decided to switch to OLEDs.

Previously, Apple also switched the iPhone from LCD to OLED. The iPhone used an OLED screen in a model for the first time in 2017. Then, Apple expanded its range to include all models.

OLED screens are expected to be used on some iPad models by 2023, and will be used on some models next year.

Apple iPad's transition to OLED could spur expansion and investment in the small and medium-sized OLED market.

iPad is the world's best-selling tablet. According to information from market research companies, annually about 50 million sets are sold.

It looks small compared to the iPhone, which sells 200 million iPhones every year. However, the iPad screen size ranges between 11 and 13 inches.

Given the use of mid-sized OLEDs (3-4 times larger than smartphones), this should lead to an expansion of the market for small and medium-sized OLED screens.

Let's say 50 million iPads have all switched to OLED. Then that means there is a new demand equivalent to 150-200 million OLED iPhone screens.
