We recently reported on rumors

regarding what to expect from the next generation of iPad Pros

but both the iPad Air and MacBook Air look set to receive some pretty impressive display updates next year, too.

Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo

(who has become something of an unofficial spokesperson for Apple of late) has suggested the 2022 MacBook Air will feature a Mini-LED display of the sort expected to arrive with the larger variant of the next iPad Pro

while the 2022 iPad Air will benefit from an OLED display. 

The current MacBook Air (M1, 2020)

boasts an already-impressive Retina True Tone display, but Mini-LED tech would bring improved contrast ratios and color reproduction to the device, making its display even more suited to professionals who work in visual mediums.

Kuo suggests that because Mini-LED display technology is more expensive, Apples next iPad Air models will instead benefit from OLED screens to ensure these devices remain the most affordable entry in the iPad range. 

This doesnt come at the expense of an upgrade over its predecessor, though, since an OLED display would mark an improvement on the iPad Airs current Liquid Retina display which, again, is already mightily impressive considering its $599 / £579 / AU$899  price tag. 

Kuo also adds that Apple has no plans to bring OLED to its high productivity devices because of “burn-in concerns” when visible marks are effectively ‘burned in to the display due to fixed images remaining on the screen for a long period of time. 

This is particularly problematic for users who work with visually-demanding software over many hours, hence why (as well as its increased cost) Apple is likely to instead bring Mini-LED technology to its premium devices the 2022 MacBook Air, the largest 2021 iPad Pro and, as previously reported

, the new MacBook Pro, which is expected to land this year.

For most iPad users, though, an OLED display would be unlikely to pose the same burn-in concerns, and instead mark a noticeable upgrade over existing iPad displays. Apple fans should be excited, then, to see OLED technology arrive on the new iPad Pros (aside from the 12.9-inch model) as well as the next iPad Air tablets. 

In any case, the future seems bright for whichever new Apple device youre on the look-out for next.
