We already knew the iPhone X and iPad Pro had amazing displays, but now they’ve been officially crowned as the Displays of the Year by the Display Industry Awards. The awards show is held annually and awards the best displays available in technology, and this year, two of the winners just so happened to be two marquee Apple products.
According to the Display Industry Awards, it honors “high-quality, innovative work that is taking place in the display industry.” The winners for the 2017 calendar year should come as no surprise to anyone. The iPhone X and iPad displays have been lauded for their capabilities and quality.
The iPhone X display is an OLED panel with a resolution of 2436×1125 at 458 pixels per inch. Samsung provided the panel and Apple calibrated it, resulting in what many believe is the best display on a smartphone. Other features Apple added include the True Tone capability, wide color gamut support and HDR.
With the iPad Pro, Apple introduced ProMotion which refreshes the display at 120Hz. This makes the display adjust instantaneously. Text and scrolling are super smooth while Apple Pencil latency in nearly non-existent.
The iPhone X award, in particular, is of note for Apple. It had been lagging behind the competition with the displays found in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Although great, they weren’t pushing the boundaries with OLED technology and other features that were being added. The iPhone X’s display changed that, placing Apple at the forefront of display advancement.
The winners will be honored at an event in Los Angeles later this month. It is unknown if Apple representatives will be present at the event.
