The latest Digitimes report claims that Apple will be utilizing IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) flat panels instead of their normal IPS (in-plane switching panels) in its “next-generation mobile display products” like the iPad 3.

We could see this new technology in the near future if we see the iPad this later this coming year.
