Apple, in a major development, has cancelled a project with the Korean company Samsung to develop an OLED display for next year's iPad Air. The main reasons are generally because of cost, brightness, and durability problems.
It has been previously reported that they are planning an iPad Air update with an OLED screen for the year 2022, with the iPad Pro getting it in 2023.
According to the present situation, at least the iPad Air data is in doubt, as the American company is not satisfied with Samsung’s progress in developing the screen.
They have called off the Samsung project. As per sources, the reason is to do with how Samsung was aiming to produce a single-stack OLED panel but Apple wanted a two-stack tandem structure.
Apple in this matter thinks that the single-stack is not bright enough, and it also may not be having a sufficient lifespan for how long people tend to hold on to their iPads and the two-stack system by comparison, doubles the possible brightness and extends the life span by up to four times.
While from Samsung's perspective, the costs of a two-stack system are technically not viable unless the iPad Air would be sold for a long time.
So in accordance to the present scenario the OLED iPad Pro models may yet be released in 2023.
