Apple may launch a MacBook Air with an OLED screen in 2024
Numerous reports have suggested that Apple plans to expand the use of OLED screen technology across its product lineups, such as the widespread adoption of OLED displays in the iPhone Pro series and the anticipated launch of an iPad Pro model with an OLED screen in 2024. Furthermore, MacBook models are expected to incorporate OLED displays, with Apple reportedly working on 32-inch and 42-inch OLED screen applications.
According to related reports, Apple intends to test the waters with the MacBook Air in 2024, gauging market reactions to OLED displays in the MacBook lineup, and potentially introducing OLED-equipped MacBook Pro models in 2026.
The iPad Pro may also receive an OLED display update in 2024, possibly replacing the current mini LED or traditional LCD screens by 2026. The rationale lies in OLED’s superior color representation and true black depiction.
However, OLED technology still has drawbacks, such as higher power consumption in full-color displays and potential screen burn-in with prolonged use. Nevertheless, as screen technology advances, these issues are expected to be gradually mitigated.
On another note, market rumors indicate that Apple plans to release 32-inch and 42-inch OLED screen products, with the earliest debut slated for 2027. However, it remains uncertain whether these will be standalone displays or integrated into iMac models.
Apple’s current new iMac features a 24-inch LCD screen design, while the Pro Display XDR boasts a 32-inch, 6K resolution LED display. The Studio Display, on the other hand, has a 27-inch, 5K resolution LED screen. Previous rumors suggested that Apple plans to launch additional external display products to cater to the demand for external displays in Mac models.
