Display analyst Ross Young claims that MacBooks and iPads could have OLED panels by 2024, in a tweet only available to his Super Followers.

For the most part, Young believes that in two years’ time, a 13.3-inch OLED MacBook, as well as an 11-inch and a 12.9-inch OLED iPad Pro, will be on shelves. However, he believes it could be a future MacBook Air, even if he has no idea which model will be the first to feature this display.


With the exception of the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro with a tiny LED display, LCD displays are now found on the majority of MacBooks and iPads. It’s hardly shocking to learn that Apple intends to incorporate OLED technology in their larger goods, given that the iPhone 13 series and the Apple Watch 7 currently have smaller displays that use OLED.

OLED’s key advantages include improved power efficiency and deeper blacks, as opposed to LCD, which relies on a backlight to illuminate each pixel. In addition, OLED screens are essential for efficient, always-on displays, which reports indicate Apple is interested in for the iPhone 14. These could appear on MacBooks and iPads in the future.

A “tandem stack” will be used for the screens on all three devices, according to Young. Improved brightness, power consumption, and total longevity will be possible thanks to this new technology. We should expect to see variable refresh rates like those on the iPhone 13 Pro and larger MacBook Pro models thanks to LTPO panels.


In the meanwhile, if you’re in the market for a new Apple laptop, the MacBook Air 2022 and MacBook Pro 2022 are the best options, both of which run on the new Apple M2 chips. For more information about the Apple MacBook Air 2022, see how to preorder it if you’ve already made up your decision.
