Future MacBook And iPad Models Reported To Feature OLED Display
Apple is one of the leaders in the market that it competes in. However, just holding top honours does not guarantee success forever, one must adapt to the ever-volatile industry. With this, the tech giant may now start introducing its OLED displays to more product lineups. We may soon start seeing better displays on its notebooks and tablets.
According to a report, Apple is apparently seeking to make good on a contract with Samsung, the latter is one of the largest manufacturers of the aforementioned OLED displays. Reportedly, the American company has failed to buy enough units for the iPhone screens from Samsung. Hence, the bid to utilize the particular technology. This report is still unconfirmed by both parties in question, so a concrete conclusion cannot be formed.
The tech giant has equipped the high-end screens on its flagship smartphones in the last few years. Even though most users are unaware of this fact, Samsung displays are actually one of the key selling points for the top-end premium smartphones used by Apple. As of now, several other OEMs have used OLED screens in their tablets and notebooks, however, Apple is yet to do the same. These screens have historically been well-received and a shift in display panels will definitely help bolster the company’s sales.
Apple devices that ship with the OLED displays are still a while away from being seen. Furthermore, even if the company were to immediately issue the order for larger sized OLED panels, it will still be a couple of years before any product having them will be commercially available. However, if this is true future MacBook Pros and iPads will be the first devices apart from the Apple Watch and iPhones to receive the particular technology.
A more probable scenario would be the iPhone XR being equipped with the OLED screen due to its popularity. Hence, a better screen on the best-selling product, as said by Apple, is highly likely. Apple is planning on making significant additions and changes in its future lineup to make up for the slowing down of its sales and drop in market share.
