Apple is rumored to launch the first MacBook Pro laptop with an OLED panel by 2026 although the launch timeframe could shift and it wouldn’t be the first time.

The company was supposed to launch a MacBook Pro with an OLED screen in 2024, then in 2025. One rumor even claimed the computer was delayed until 2027.

The latest prediction comes from research firm Omdia, which said the iPhone maker would release an OLED laptop as early as 2026.

“Apple is highly likely to incorporate OLED into its MacBook Pro models as early as 202,” said Ricky Park, senior principal analyst in Omdia’s Display Research Practice.

Rumor: A MacBook Pro with an OLED screen in 2026

Apple and its technology peers have been increasingly making OLED-based devices, increasing demand for OLED panels worldwide. Park expects an OLED MacBook Pro to “spark a significant surge in OLED demand within the notebook market.”

OLED may not be as big a deal as on Apple’s non-pro laptops that lack the excellent Liquid Retina XDR display because it provides an OLED-like experience with 1000 nits sustained full-screen brightness and 1600 nits peak brightness.

Apple just released its first OLED-based iPads and could be working on a folding laptop with a flexible OLED panel, measuring about 18 inches when unfolded. An OLED-based iPad mini seems to be in the works as well.

OLED panels consume less power than LCD IPS screens and enable thinner devices as there’s no backlight. OLED enables much higher contrast and brightness with deeper blacks, vivid colors, higher resolutions and other perks. Because each pixel is lit individually, OLED panels don’t suffer from blooming like mini-LED.
