Apple's OLED Roadmap: New iPad Mini, Foldable iPad Pro, and More

Apple is planning to launch at least nine new devices with OLED displays across the iPad and MacBook product lines, according to an updated forecast from research firm Omdia that sets out the company's plans in detail.

As widely rumored, Apple's push to transition to OLED will apparently be jump-started by the release of new 11- and 13-inch iPad Pro models this year. The displays will feature 2,388 by 1,668 and 2,880 by 1,920 resolutions, respectively, Omdia claims. This would be a slight increase in height and a reduction in width for the larger model, while the smaller ‌iPad Pro‌ would retain the same resolution.

In 2026, Apple will launch 8.3-inch iPad mini and 10.8-inch iPad Air models with OLED displays, as well as 14.2-inch and 16.2-inch OLED MacBook Pro models designed to replace the current mini-LED units. The company is also reportedly working on 13.6-inch and 15.3-inch OLED MacBook Air models for launch no earlier than 2027. These machines will still lack ProMotion technology with a refresh rate of 60Hz like the current models.

In 2027 or later, Apple may introduce a 20.3-inch foldable OLED ‌iPad Pro‌ with ProMotion. This product is still said to be in the conceptual stage, but broadly lines up with other rumors about such a device. Overall, the report largely corroborates existing rumors about Apple's upcoming plans to transition almost all of its portable devices to OLED technology.

Apple will still milk the "ProMotion" cow dry by 2027 by keeping it a "Pro" feature while cheap $200 Androids with 120hz screens will laugh at us. Apple needs to stop this "ProMotion" marketing garbage and use 120hz screens across entire device portfolio starting this year. There is noting "Pro" about 120hz screens in 2024.

@Hartley Not sure how I'm the first to point it out, but that graph looks terrible on darkmode.

Will there not be a new iPad mini until 2026? ?
New iPad incoming this year. They are also flipping the display orientation to lessen the wobbly effect. It just won't have OLED.
