Apple may move away from mini-LED displays for its future iPads and MacBooks lineups and opt for OLED displays instead. This is according to industry sources which claim that demand for mini-LED suppliers is shrinking due to Apple’s alleged move.
According to MacRumors which quoted a report from DigiTimes, Epistar, Apple’s main mini-LED display supplier said that demand for the panel technology’s use in consumer electronic devices is decreasing. However, the demand for mini-LED displays for use in dashboards and displays for vehicles is set for a spike in 2023.
Previously, rumours claim that Apple is planning to release its first-ever iPad Pro with an OLED display in 2024. Currently, the latest iPad Pro 11-inch uses an IPS LCD display while the iPad Pro 12.9-inch utilises mini-LED. Mini-LED displays are also being used on the latest MacBook lineup as well as on the Pro Display XDR monitor.
Of course, do take this information with a grain of salt as nothing is confirmed as of yet. Nevertheless, given the decreased demand for mini-LED, this speculation may have some truth to it.
