OLED iPad Mini could be released in early 2026

A new supply chain news has emerged that Apple is preparing to launch the iPad Mini model with OLED screen in 2026. According to the news, iPad Air will also be updated with OLED screen technology in the same period.

Samsung Display is taking serious steps in OLED screen production. The company is planned to start mass production in late 2025. This production schedule strengthens the possibility of an OLED iPad Mini launch in early 2026.

Samsung Display started production of OLED panels for the iPad Pro this year. It has been reported that the company has recently started developing OLED panels for the iPad Mini. This development shows that Apple attaches importance to high quality in devices with smaller screens.

Related news suggests that the iPad Air model with OLED screen will also be released. Apple uses expensive and sophisticated display technology in its new iPad Pro models. However, as OLED technology becomes more economical over time, it will be possible to apply this innovation to mid-segment products.

This new report is consistent with the iPad roadmap published in November last year. It was stated that the new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models would be released in 2024 with OLED and ProMotion features. In 2026, a new iPad Mini with a larger 8.7-inch screen and a new 10.9-inch iPad Air with an OLED screen are expected.

Samsung Display's start of mass production for OLED displays supports Apple's plans for 2026. The mass production process is expected to start towards the end of 2025. This could make it possible to launch OLED iPad Mini and OLED iPad Air models in early 2026.

Apple will make OLED displays widespread on iPads

Apple is taking strategic steps to integrate OLED display technology into its product line. This technology offers superior image quality compared to existing LCD screens. Apple's moves in this direction aim to improve user experience and increase competitiveness.

Apple is accelerating its future plans for OLED technology. It aims to offer this technology in various iPad models by 2026. With the contributions of Samsung Display, it seems that it will be even easier for Apple to achieve these goals.
