Apple’s first OLED MacBook is coming by the end of 2024. Per analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple plans to ship the OLED MacBook in the later stages of next year, so don’t hold your breath for one sooner.
Kuo says that OLED will bring a few advantages over the mini-LED Apple currently uses in the MacBook Pro 14 and 16, and the iPad Pro 12. It will allow for thinner and lighter devices with more diverse form factors. On a side note, OLED also allows for folding devices.
It’s expected that with Apple’s adoption, the growth of OLED laptop shipments will continue to surge in the coming years.

Kuo doesn’t say which MacBook will be the first to adopt OLED, but industry insider Ross Young has said that Apple will announce a 13-inch OLED MacBook Air by 2024.
