Apple debuted its new 2021 iPad Pro 12.9-inch with a beautiful new Mini-LED display, but rumor has it the new 2022 iPad Air and 2023 iPad Pro will reportedly use an OLED display -- and at up to the super-smooth 120Hz refresh rate.
According to the next-gen 2022 iPad Air (also known as the iPad Air 5) and it will reportedly feature a 10.8-inch rigid OLED display, while the new 2023 iPad Pro will shift from the mini-LED display inside of the just-released 2021 iPad Pro 12.9-inch to a higher-end OLED display.
The Elec is reporting that Apple will be rolling out new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPads with flexible OLED technology, with Apple reportedly moving over to LTPO OLED displays on the 2023 iPad Pro with 120Hz refresh rates on offer. The refresh rate will dynamically change depending on what is happening on screen, which will provide the best of both worlds: out of this world image quality, super-smooth refresh rate and kick ass battery life.
