Earlier we heard a report that Apple is launching its 12.9-inch OLED iPad Pro line no earlier than 2023, and better yet, the device will support LTPO technology. And now we have additional information regarding the device that LG Display will place orders for Apple and also that mass production of the display is expected to start between the end of 2023 and 2024.
According to sources, LG Display will process Apple’s orders, although usually it would have been Samsung which was Apple’s preferred company for sourcing high-quality panels. However, reports suggest the Cupertino-based tech giant has apparently fallen out with the Korean maker, at least over a future iPad Air panel.
IPads are held for much longer periods of time than iPhones, so it was inevitable that Apple couldn’t keep its one-time deal with Samsung for several years. LG would therefore develop a dual-stack OLED panel structure.
While there are reports that LG may not get much out of the company in terms of profit generation, so this deal could very well be a measure to appease Apple and secure future orders, thus reducing the number of orders Samsung receives from Apple.
South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics is expected to supply iPad Pro OLED panels, but the number of orders received was not discussed in the report. In the next generation iPad Pro, we could see the device panel featuring the same Gen 6 substrates as the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max while also supporting LTPO TFT technology.
This could mean that the premium tablet could dynamically change its refresh rate between 10Hz and 120Hz depending on what was displayed. This will lead to exceptional conservation of battery life.
