We’re getting close to Apple’s usual window for new iPhone launches. This year, the company is expected to ditch the iPhone 13 mini and bring three models – the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and Pro Max. According to leaks, the devices will not bring ground-breaking changes in comparison to their predecessors. The camera setup, however, will see an upgrade. Moreover, the display on the higher-end models will finally see some high-refresh-rate love. According to rumors, the Pro variants will finally enter the era of a 120 Hz refresh rate. By 2023, all iPhones will have 120 Hz refresh rate screens. This is a feature that is also to arrive on the iPad, and a new report suggests that it will happen by 2023. Apple will unveil an iPad model with 10.86-inch next year, and in 2023 it will reveal two iPads with 120Hz OLED screens.
The new report suggests that the 2022 iPad will have a display with a 10.86-inch screen which is very specific. Interestingly, this is the same size as the current iPad Air. This means that the report is referring to the next-generation iPad Air. Apple will use the Thin-Film Encapsulation (TFE) method to protect the OLED panel from moisture and oxygen since the technology is pretty sensitive in this regard. The 2023 iPads will sport 120Hz OLED displays with 12.9-inch and 11.0-inch flavors. The former probably belongs to the iPad Pro family. The LTPO technology will be used to reduce power consumption at a higher refresh rate. The OLED display will be shipped solely by Samsung. However, given the amount of time before the release of this new iPad, this can change.
2023 iPads will use flexible OLED technology
By 2023, the OLED iPad is likely to have different application technologies. It includes substrates, TFT, and RGB Light layered structures. The models will have Flexile OLED instead of the rigid OLED. The TFT will review the low-temperature oxide method. The RGB light-emitting layer will take care of the structure that builds up to two layers. The company will finalize the review on implementing the OLED iPad technology by analyzing the benefits and costs of technological change. Samsung’s and LG’s investment in OLED production lines will also be directly influenced by Apple’s judgment.
We expect more details to emerge in the forthcoming months. Anything can change because these devices are several months away from their release.
