    With the release of the OLED iPhone X, it is exciting to think of the possibility that we will have OLED iPads and maybe even MacBook pros somewhere down the future.

    I own a 55 inch Panasonic OLED TV and the image quality is absolutely amazing. Perfect blacks that beat even my Kuro and Panasonic Plasmas.

    Imagine having that on an iPad or iPad Pro. That would be an absolute dream

    I will hold off buying any further iPads until they get OLED displays

    Can't be too far...Samsung makes them for their tablets. Since Apple already uses Samsung's displays on the new OLED iPhone....they only have to contract them to produce them a Display for the iPad. I'm thinking 2019 will be the introduction of a OLED iPad. Most likely it will be introduced in the 10.5 iPad pro and not the 12.9 due to pricing etc.

    seeing as apple has switched to high refresh rate displays, i don't think that soon. High refresh rates are tough to do on oled panels.

    I don't think 120 Hz would be an issue. TV OLED panels are already 120 Hz but due to HDMI 2.0 limitations only accept 60 Hz input at 4K but I think LG's TVs do accept 1080p @ 120 Hz. The bigger issue is probably that I don't know if there are any tablet size OLED panels being made, let alone ones that support high refresh rates.

    It would be a fairly natural improvement to the iPad along with getting rid of the home button for Face ID as long as they can make it support more than one face due to tablets often being shared within a household. iOS 11 already has gestures to go to home screen so 2018 or 2019 OLED iPad without home button seems likely.

    Huh? OLED has near instant pixel response times. OLED TVs are coming out with true 120hz refresh rates.

    The normal iPads can have OLED and the pro iPads can have high refresh rate, problem solved.

    It's easier to implement 120 HZ refresh on OLED DISPLAYS. You may be one of the ones angry that ProMotion was not included on the new iPhone. But you are definitely incorrect.
