Between 2022 and 2023 we will see the first tablets with an organic display and the earphones revised in design and hardware
What is boiling in the pot Apple for the next two years? Two of the most succulent advances that have leaked in the past few hours with the protagonists iPad with oled screen and the second version of the wireless headphones, the AirPods Pro 2.
iPad con display oled
The debut of the oled panels on the iPads it will hardly happen this year. According to a recent publication by The Elec, the first model will see the light of trade in 2022 and will be a iPad Air with a 10.86-inch diagonal, followed in 2023 by a iPad Pro 11 and 12.9 inch oled type.
The oleds mounted on the iPad Air will be of the rigid type, while those for the pros will be flexible. The latter have the advantage of being able to accommodate curved internal components and thinner bezels, as seen in the iPhone field since model X of 2017.
Recall that a iPad Pro with mini-led screen (here our review), a technology that can control the illumination of the pixels of the screen in a very precise and localized way. Every single pixel of oled displays, on the other hand, can light up by itself, but it suffers from greater burn-in (halos) and has less pushed viewing angles and general brightness.
At the design level, the next iPad Pro presented is expected to replace the aluminum back with a protective glass that can too enable wireless charging.
AirPods Pro 2
There is also a lot of expectation on the second generation of the best performing wireless headphones: AirPods Pro 2, however, it is not yet on the launch pad and could be delayed until 2022. Ad anticipate it it is also Ming-Chi Kuo who has also specified how the sales forecasts of the first model for 2021 have dropped from 75-85 million to 70-75 million. The debut of the second version, however, should lead to a 100 million year.
What will the new headphones look like? The big addition should be about motion detection sensors take care of fitness and more precise tracking when you are working out. Also possible a design overhaul with a shorter temples if not eliminated.
