After recently unveiling the first MacBook Pros with mini-LED displays, Apple is reportedly already developing next-generation panels. Supposedly, Apple will combine two OLED panels to achieve extreme brightness and durability, but they will not be ready for market under the middle of the decade at the earliest.

For months, there have been rumours that Apple would equip MacBooks with OLED displays, a technology that it has only brought to iPhones and Watch Series devices so far. According to The Elec, it will still be a few years before Apple can bring OLED displays to laptops, such as the MacBook Pro series.

Reportedly, Apple will introduce a laptop with an OLED display in 2025 at the earliest, with an OLED iPad due in late 2023 or 2024. Apparently, Apple's OLED displays will not be like those in other laptops. The Elec writes that Apple is developing a new panel that combines two OLED panels, supposedly improving luminosity and durability compared to contemporary OLED panels.

Reputedly, high costs are preventing Apple from producing large OLED panels are sooner. As it stands, Apple has brought mini-LED panels to the iPad Pro 12.9, MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16, which are all top-tier devices. Rumour has it that Apple ran into issues producing these mini-LED displays, so we imagine that it will persist with these until it brings the costs of these large OLED displays down.
