Apple is apparently working on two models of the iPad Pro that come with a low-power LTPO OLED display. These tablets will probably be introduced around 2023 or 2024, and their screen refresh rate will drop to 10 Hz.
According to the Korean publication The ElecApple is likely to bring LTPO OLED technology to tablets following the launch of the iPhone 13 Pro. Since the company’s most powerful tablet is the iPad Pro, it is said that the next generation of this product will support refresh rates in the range of 10 to 120 Hz.
The iPad Pro has been using the promotion display since 2017, but this display limits the refresh rate range to 24 to 120 Hz. In fact, technically speaking, the iPad Pro models have supported the 120Hz, 60Hz, 40Hz, 30Hz and 24Hz refresh rates since 2017. But now the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max have access to the refresh rate of 120Hz, 80Hz, 60Hz, 48Hz, 40Hz, 30Hz, 24Hz, 20Hz, 16Hz, 15Hz, 12Hz and 10Hz.
Today’s report says that one of the next iPad Pro models will have a 12.9-inch screen. Bloomberg has previously said that Apple is working on a larger iPad to ship the device with an 11-inch model. According to Ming-Chi Koo, Apple has canceled plans to launch an iPad with an OLED display in 2022 and postponed it until 2023 or later.
In addition, Ross Young, a monitor supply chain analyst, claimed that Apple’s first iPad with an OLED display will be available in 2023. With this in mind, there is a lot of time left until the introduction of this product and we have to wait for more reports to be published in this field.
