Apple is rumored to be working on OLED display technology for future iPad Pro models. However, a report suggests that these OLED-equipped tablets could be much more expensive than current iPad Pro models.
According to a new report, the 11-inch OLED model could cost as much as $1,500 and the 13-inch version could be more than $1,800. This is a steep hike, and it would likely put off many potential buyers.
According to a new report, Apple iPad Pro models with OLED displays could be more expensive than current models. The company is reportedly discussing supply costs with display partners LG Display and Samsung Display.
OLED panels are more expensive to produce compared to LCDs because they are harder to make. However, they have improved a lot in the past few years, and there are a number of benefits to using them.
They offer a more vibrant viewing experience, with better color accuracy and wide viewing angles, and they reduce eye fatigue. They also have fast refresh rates and response times that allow for fluid scrolling on screens.
But they also have limited lifetime. As a result, it’s a good idea to invest in a high-quality screen that will last a long time. OLED panels are more fragile than LCDs, which makes them less suitable for tablets. They can also be affected by pixel wear and burn-in.
OLED displays are expected to be used in Apple’s upcoming iPad Pro models. These devices are expected to come with a new “tandem stack” display that’s designed to double the brightness and extend the lifespan of OLED screens, as well as improve power efficiency.
This display technology is reportedly being developed by Samsung and LG, both of which are based in South Korea. According to a report from Macrumors, this display technology could cost more than two to three times as much as existing OLED panels.
This price hike is a result of the “Two-Stack-Tandem-Structure” which uses two light-emitting layers, rather than a single layer. This technology can reportedly provide double the brightness and quadruple the life span of OLED screens, but it’s also rumored to be significantly more expensive.
Variable Refresh Rate
Apple is rumored to be working on new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models with OLED displays. These devices could be more expensive than current models because of the high cost of OLED panels.
Currently, both the iPad Pro 11-inch and the iPad Pro 12.9-inch feature mini-LED panels labeled Liquid Retina XDR. These panels have a number of benefits over LCD ones, including better color accuracy and improved image quality.
However, they also have a few drawbacks. First, they are more susceptible to burn-in, which can result in a visible mark on the screen if left on for long periods of time.
To combat these issues, Apple introduced a variable refresh rate on the iPad Pro, which adjusts the display’s refresh rate based on what is being displayed on it. This intelligent adaptability not only boosts the tablet’s performance but also conserves battery life.
If Apple plans to introduce iPad Pro models with OLED displays, the devices could be more expensive than those with LCD panels. The cost increase would depend on the size of the new screen, but it is said to be around 60 percent or 80 percent more expensive than the current generation.
OLED panels use self-emitting pixels to provide higher brightness and contrast than LED panels. These panels are also more durable and less likely to burn-in.
However, OLED screens aren’t perfect. They do require more power and can be hard to see in low light conditions.
Luckily, there are ways to get around these issues and improve the battery life of OLED screens. One example is a tool developed by researchers from Purdue University. The tool, called Per-Frame OLED Power Profiler (PFOP), can help app developers optimize their code to reduce energy consumption in dark mode.
