Apple began using OLED screens in iPhone X as early as 2017, and before that, OLED screens were also used in the first-generation Apple Watch. And of course there’s the Touch Bar (rest in peace). But other places have been slow to abandon LCD, such as iMacs, MacBooks, standalone monitors and iPads. I wish all of these things were OLED, but if the iPad Pro gets it first as rumored, that’ll be fine by me.
No product bothers me more about using an LCD panel than my 11-inch iPad Pro. The screen looks beautiful as long as I look directly at it. A little off-axis, though, and the screen is beautiful. The screen becomes darker. The same goes for my laptop, but I’m always sitting directly in front of the screen, almost always looking at a browser window with text in it.
Contrast isn’t the LCD’s strong suit either, and gray-black letterboxing and shadows annoy me even more when I watch movies and TV shows.If I’m just reading, it doesn’t matter, but if I’m playing a game – especially something like Resident Evil Village, I’m sure it will run on the next iPad Pro – or watching movies, the deep blacks added by OLED will look even better. In dark horror games, it’s easier to spot things through the extra contrast.
OLED also means other things, like an always-on iPad screen.This may open up a version iPhone standby mode It turns your iPad into a true blue smart display (this is There were rumors before), actually carving out a niche for the iPad to actually use.
Assuming the OLED upgrade meant more than just a beautiful screen for the next Pro model, I wouldn’t hesitate to sell my M1 iPad Pro to buy it.
It seems my wish will come true soon. this morning, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reiterates In the subscriber Q&A section Open things he said in the past: Apple will launch a new OLED iPad Pro next year.In the last update, he called it the “first major overhaul in five years,” launching 11-inch models and 13-inch models, and I hope that’s true because it needs it.
Guo Mingchi also responded to this point Later in the day, a Medium post stated that Apple will mass-produce two OLED iPads using the same LTPO technology that provides variable refresh rates from 1Hz to 120Hz for the Apple Watch and newer iPhones. Kuo added that they will surpass the Mini LED iPad Pro in “display performance and power consumption.”
