Apple’s upcoming OLED display MacBooks and touchscreen Macs: All the details
Let’s first look at the MacBook with OLED screen, as reported by a well-known analyst Ming Chi Kuo in a series of tweets.
Compared to mini-LED, laptops using OLEDs have the advantage of being thinner, lighter and offering more diverse form factor design options such as folding, so this has led to Apple planning to ship the OLED MacBook as late as late 2024 at the earliest.

We all know that the entire current lineup of MacBooks has LCD panels, and the latest 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro retain mini-LED backlighting and ProMotion.
But the company plans to introduce the first-ever MacBook, which will feature an OLED screen to replace LCD and mini-LED panels.
This shift impacts MacBook designs by making it lighter, and because the OLED display doesn’t need a backlight, the device will have a better contrast ratio and a longer battery life.
Currently there are no details on whether it will be a Pro or Air model of MacBook. This OLED screen MacBook is expected to arrive by the end of 2024as noted by Kuo.
By the way, Apple is also reportedly working on bringing touchscreens to Macs, and this information is coming out from Bloomberg Mark Guerman. And this new touchscreen Mac is expected to arrive 2025.
While this project had been rumored for the past few years and was previously entered by his other projects, it has now come back into rumor, and as Gurman said, Apple is “actively involved in the project”.
It is reported that this Mac works with touchscreen macOSand some rumors have also suggested that Apple is working to combine iPadOS and macOS.
The company will also be rumored some other Macs this year which will be powered by the M2 Pro chips like M2 Pro, M2 Maxand M2 Ultra.
