Although Apple has not abandoned plans to release MacBook models with OLED panels, the corporation is likely to do so five years from now, according to a recent report.
According to The Elec, Apple is in negotiations with Samsung and LG about supplying OLED screens with a two-stack tandem design for both the MacBook and iPad Pro versions.
Apple intended to introduce its first OLED display in 2025, according to insiders who spoke to the journal — which has a great track record of accurately forecasting subjects involving US-based companies.
According to the research, the most major hurdle for Apple is cost, as the company seeks to extend the life of its displays through the use of a double stack technique, which doubles the cost of manufacturing the panel.
According to the article, this architecture stacks two layers of red, green, and blue emission layers on top of one another, doubling the panel's brightness and extending its life. Apart from that, thin-film transistor (TFT) technology is required to act as the pixels' switches. Because tablets and personal computers have a longer life expectancy than telephones, this technology is deemed necessary."
Apple is still contemplating whether to utilize two-stack tandem LTPO TFT panels in MacBooks or oxide TFT panels. According to reports, the first OLED iPad Pro models are anticipated to launch in 2023 or 2024, and they are believed to utilize the latter technology, which could save some money.
