In today's one we hear about Apple’s interest in adopting the Mini-LED on the screens of their products, technology, which should not be confused with microLED, brings the benefits of OLED (more accurate colors, better contrast) without its disadvantages (such as the possibility of burn-in).
We already “know” that Ma should debut technology on the iPad Pro and MacBook Pro at some point in the future, and today TrendForce has arrived to heat up the rumored machine: according to a report from the Taiwanese website, Apple will launch the products sometime next year a new model of the iPad Pro and a new generation of MacBook Pro, with models of 14 (yes, 14) and 16 inches.
According to the report, manufacturers in Asia are currently competing for the contract to supply Apple panels; the process should be extended over the next few months, and the supply should start in the first quarter of next year.
The report states that a new version of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, already with a Mini-LED screen, will be launched in the first quarter of 2021 with no information on the smaller, 11-inch model. TrendForce bets that the tablet will bring connectivity options 5G and that the chip "A14X", which will probably equip this future model, will be based on a 5 nanometer architecture (the A13, currently, 7nm).
The new MacBooks Pro will arrive sometime in the year, with no specific dates. It remains to be seen whether they will still be equipped with Intel processors, since the transition to the Apple Silicon is likely to take a while longer on the other hand, rumors suggest that MacBooks Pro may be the first Macs of that transition.
Anyway, the route is already basically traced: TrendForce's information reflects the forecasts published by Ming-Chi Kuo a few months ago, the analyst, for those who do not remember, said that Ma will launch six products with Mini-LED screens along 2021. Now, therefore, sit and wait.
