Apple unveiled its first iPads that sport an OLED panel rather than a liquid crystal display one on Tuesday.

Cupertino in its online Let Loose event showed off its new iPad Pro models, which have a two-stack tandem OLED panel as their screen.

The iPhone maker also unveiled new iPad Air models that does sport an LCD screen. Both Pro and Air comes in 11-inch and 13-inch models.

Apple said that a single OLED can not offer the extreme dynamic range that iPad Pro users desire, so it developed a two OLED screen that has two emission layers.

Calling the technology Tandem OLED, the company said touted it as the future of iPad Pro models.

The new tablets’ screens offer a total screen luminance of 1,000 nits and up to 1,600 nits in high dynamic range.

Apple also said its iPad Pros were its thinnest model to date at 5.3mm and weighing 445g for the 11-inch model and 5.1mm and weighing 581g for the 13-inch model.

Cupertino applied what the industry calls a hybrid OLED technology where a glass substrate is combined with encapsulation and attached to another glass substrate. The glass substrate at the bottom is 0.2mm thin, an ultra-thin substrate. 

LG Display and Samsung Display, which supplies these panels to Apple, use Avatec and Chemtronics, respectively, for the etching of these ultra-thin substrates.

LG Display supplies the panels for both 11-inch and 13-inch models while Samsung Display provides its screens for the 11-inch model alone.

The price for the 11-inch iPad Pro ranges from US$1,000 to US$2,000 for internal storage ranging from 256GB to 2TB. The 13-inch model starts at US$1,300 for 256GB storage and goes up to US$2,300 for 2TB.

Consumers can pay an additional US$700 to change the protective glass of 1TB and 2TB models to a nano texture glass that lowers the reflection rate.

The iPad Pro models are also powered by the M4 processor, an Arm-based SoC. The iPad Air models have the M2 series.
