LG Display (LGD) is reportedly set to surpass Samsung Display in supplying OLED screens for Apple’s upcoming iPad Pro. According to the South Korean source yeux1122, LGD is gearing up for mass production of these screens starting February 2024. Their annual output is expected to be between 6.2 to 6.5 million units.

The introduction of OLED screens marks a significant shift for Apple’s iPad Pro series, which currently employs LCD and mini-LED displays. LGD’s lead in this domain is attributed to their innovative two-stack tandem structure and superior organic material devices, a notch above Samsung’s offerings.

Samsung, although facing initial yield challenges, has reportedly resolved these issues and is expected to supply around 4 million OLED screens to Apple. This development follows Apple’s strategic discussions with both LGD and Samsung about the OLED supply for the iPad Pro over the past 2-3 years.

The upcoming OLED iPad Pro models, rumored to be slightly larger at 11 and 13 inches, are designated under codenames J717, J718, J720, and J721, and will include both Wi-Fi and 5G variants. Adding to the buzz, there’s speculation that the 2024 iPad Pro might feature MagSafe wireless charging, integrating a glass Apple logo on its aluminum back for efficient power transmission. This innovative design approach aims to balance aesthetics with durability, showcasing Apple’s commitment to evolving technology and design.
