According to rumors, Apple’s plans to transition to OLED technology for future iPad models could involve the use of “hybrid” OLED technology that combines rigid and flexible OLED panel materials. the elect (original Korean version).
The report states that Apple is reluctant to rely solely on the flexible OLED technology it uses in its iPhone models, as panels tend to “crease” and the effect is more noticeable as screens get larger.

When it became known that Apple plans to apply hybrid OLED to the first OLED iPad, the industry assumed that the cause was cost reduction.
However, it is understood that there is a reason why Apple preferred hybrid OLED other than this cost reduction. An aftermarket industry official said, “Apple hated the fact that a part of the product’s screen might look wrinkled to the user’s eyes when using a flexible OLED.” He said, “The OLED iPhone has a 5- to 7-inch screen, so these features don’t reveal well, but it’s relatively noticeable on large-screen (10- to 20-inch) TI products,” he explained.
While hybrid OLED technology is yet to be perfected and will take at least a year to become commercially viable before it can be incorporated into an OLED iPad around 2024, the report says that both Samsung and LG are pursuing ultra-thin glass substrates that measure only 0.2mm thick to be used with the technology, down from the current standard of around 0.5mm.
The report says that Apple may still choose to use flexible OLED panels in iPad models if the shortcomings can be ironed out, but for now at least, it looks like hybrid panels may be a better option as they are thinner than rigid panels. and cheaper than the flexible ones. panels
