Last April, previously Apple's keynote that took place in June, popular TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had highlighted the importance of LED mini in the prosperous gadgets So the new Pro Display XDR was expected to feature the technology, but we know that's not exactly what happened.
Now, Kuo reiterated his prediction a few months ago and said that Apple plans to launch new top-of-the-line models. iPad It's from MacBook Mini-LED displays between late 2020 and mid-2021, as reported by MacRumors.
According to analyst forecasts, iPads and MacBooks equipped with such technology would use approximately 10,000 LEDs It is a much larger number than the Pro Display XDR, which uses 570 LEDs for its backlight. More precisely, each illumination point would be less than 0.2mm.
OLED displays (currently used on iPhones flagship) offer a comparable color range of Mini-LED technology; however, Apple's choice of the second option would be based on the fact that it is not so susceptible to burn in, a problem that was noticed by the company itself with the release of iPhone X in 2017.
More than that, Apple would also be interested in buying Mini-LED displays from various vendors, not mostly from Samsung, as is currently the case with OLED displays.
If Kuo's predictions prove true, we'll probably still see another generation of iPad Pro and MacBook Pro without Mini-LED displays before Apple releases these. gadgets with the new technology, and Ma would introduce the tablet first.
With respect to the MacBook Pro, the future Mini-LED model is expected to be related to the speculated 16-inch version (expected this year, but "postponed" to 2021). As the analyst has already inferred, the new laptop is likely to feature a completely new design, thinner bezels and the return of the scissor keyboard. Really be? We'll see.
