While everyone was waiting for the confirmed news about the next iPad Air with OLED, the sudden news took the storm as Apple analyst Kuo noted that Apple has ditched its plans to release an updated iPad Air with an OLED display.
Why Apple Cancelled iPad Air OLED?
According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, OLED displays are costing too much while not offering good quality. He noted that the cost is high, but the performance is not that good as they expected.
In March, Kuo was the first leaker who started rumors that Apple is planning to prepare iPad Air with OLED display for 2022. He stated that the 11-inch iPad Pro would get a mini-LED display next year. Kuo also said that the company has canceled OLED iPad Air is that it may have been detrimental to the sales of the forthcoming 11-inch iPad Pro with a mini-LED display.
Right now, only the 12.9-inch iPad Pro includes the newer mini-LED technology. So if you want the iPad with OLED, you will have to satisfy with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which has mini-LED technology.
Hence, we may see the next iPad Air with the LCD display. However, Apple is working and testing new display technologies for upcoming products. Recently, one report came to the light that Apple and Samsung had discarded their joint plans to build up an OLED display for a forthcoming updated 10.9-inch iPad Air.
