Apple to switch focus on foldable iPad and OLED MacBook after OLED iPad release in 2024

Apple is strongly rumored to release the first OLED iPad Pro as soon as next year, and the company doesn’t plan to stop there. A new report from Nikkei Asia details Apple’s OLED plans beyond its premium tablet, including a foldable iPad and an OLED Macbook.

According to the report, Apple is actively developing the first MacBook with an OLED display for release after the first OLED iPad. Sources indicate that at the current development timeline, mass production for the OLED MacBook won’t kick off till the second half of 2025 at the earliest, indicating a release date of late 2025 or early 2026.

In addition to these two products, Apple is also said to have begun very early work on a foldable iPad that would also be built around an OLED panel. However, the report warns that the company is yet to define a “concrete timeline” for when such a device might be released. A foldable iPhone seems even further out as earlier reports indicated that the company is focused on releasing a foldable tablet-caliber device first before attempting a foldable iPhone.

The timeline for the OLED MacBook seems to be up in the air, but multiple sources seem to agree that it should hit the market by 2027. A report by The Elec indicated that Apple was delaying the first OLED MacBook Pro from 2026 to 2027 over fears of falling demand and reluctance from the company to heavily invest in the device before demand stabilizes.

On the other hand, Apple is also developing advanced display technologies beyond OLED. The company has been working on microLED for over a decade, and could soon reap the benefits of its investment with the first microLED Apple Watch within the next few years.
