Samsung could supply OLED screens to Apple for next year’s iPads


Last updated: May 31st, 2021 at 12:09 UTC+02:00

Earlier today, it was reported that Samsung Display has started making 120Hz LTPO OLED panels for the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Pro. In addition to those, the South Korean display manufacturing giant could also supply OLED screens for some iPad models that are expected to be released next year.

According to a report from ETNews, Apple will switch from LCD and Mini-LED screens to OLED screens for some iPad models starting next year. Samsung Display has been supplying OLED screens for Apple Watches, iPhones, and even MacBook’s Touch Bar. Now, it is being expected that the South Korean display manufacturing giant will make OLED screens for next year’s iPads as well.

The companies have reportedly agreed on the production schedule and delivery of the screens. LG could also be one of the OLED screen suppliers for next year’s iPads. Apple is the world’s biggest tablet maker, and getting a contract to make screens for iPads would undoubtedly be a massive business for Samsung Display.

The 12.9-inch version of the iPad Pro released this year switched from LCD to Mini-LED display, offering brightness, contrast ratio, and deeper blacks. However, critical analysis has revealed that the Mini-LED display has a blooming problem in some scenarios. On the other hand, OLED screens don’t have the blooming issue due to their self-emissive pixels.

It is also being reported that all iPads released in 2023 could have OLED screens. It will result in more significant investments and faster innovation in the medium-sized OLED segment, and more brands could start using OLED screens for their tablets (and even laptops). Samsung Display has already launched OLED displays with a 90Hz refresh rate for laptops.
