According to display industry analyst Ross Young, it seems “increasingly likely” that Apple will launch a new 13-inch MacBook with an OLED display in 2024. In a tweet shared with his super followers today, Young said the notebook is expected to be a new MacBook Air, but said there’s a possibility it will have a different brand.


Young, who has meticulously revealed a range of display-related information for the iPhone 13 Pro, iPad mini, MacBook Pro and other devices, also expects Apple to launch new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models with OLED-enabled OLED capabilities in 2024. screens will release .

In another tweet shared with his Super Followers, Young said the OLED displays in all three new devices will adopt a tandem two-stack structure, in which there are two red, green and blue emission layers, providing greater brightness and lower power consumption. OLED screens also do not require a backlight for greater energy efficiency.

Young said all devices will use LTPO display technology for a variable refresh rate between 1 Hz and 120 Hz, a feature Apple calls ProMotion. All iPad Pro models released since 2017 already feature ProMotion, but the refresh rate can only drop to 24 Hz, while ProMotion is said to be brand new to the MacBook Air.

Apple is currently focused on transitioning its Mac and iPad lines to LCD displays with mini LED backlighting, and OLED displays could be the next step. Unlike mini LED screens, OLED panels use self-emitting pixels and do not require a backlight, which could improve the contrast ratio and further help extend battery life.
