How Samsung may help Apple make OLED iPad
Apple is reportedly planning to launch an iPad in 2024 with an OLED display provided by Samsung. As per a recent report by The Elec, the Korean giant has started to develop the necessary equipment that is needed to manufacture the OLED panels the Apple wants for its iPads. The report further mentions that Apple will need to make a huge enough order to make the project financially viable.
According to the older reports by TheElec, both the tech giants were working to develop a 10.86-inch OLED iPad. The tablet would have been Apple’s first tablet to sport an OLED panel and it was slated to launch in 2022. As of now only Apple Watches and iPhones have OLED technology as it is expensive. The joint project was reportedly called off as most OLED panels use a single slack structure where red, green and blue form one emission layer. However, Apple demanded two stack tandem structures for the iPad OLED panel as it stacks two red, green and blue emission layers which doubles the brightness and extends the life of the panel by up to four times.
The report suggests that profitability was an issue for Samsung as preparing for the back-end module and completely resetting the manufacturing line is quite an expensive move to make for limited production. Now as per the latest report, Samsung is ready to manufacture the OLED panels that Apple wants but it seeks a huge order and machinery to do so.
A report by MacRumors has also revealed that Chinese electronic components company, BOE, has recently converted the layout of one of its OLED panel factories to manufacture larger panels for other devices and automobiles, other than just smartphones. BOE, which also happens to be a supplier of Apple, may develop OLED displays for iPads and iMacs in this factory.
