It is already more or less a known fact that, at some point in the near future, Apple will turn its attention to technology Mini-LED, applying it to the screens of several products in its line – and the first one, according to the main bets, will be the next generation of iPad Pro. Because this week the The Elec arrived with possible news about future tablets.
According to sources heard by the report, the new iPad Pro may be launched still on end of 2020 – which, if confirmed, will place the fourth generation of tablets (launched last March) as one of the shortest in Apple’s history. The article, however, places this prediction as “uncertain”; it is possible that Apple will simply hold the launch in a few months for the current generation to complete the traditional one-year cycle.
The report also mentions that the LG will be the sole supplier of Mini-LED screens for the future iPad Pro – which, if materialized, will represent the first time that the South Korean company will supply the panels alone for a family of Apple products. According to sources, the Epistar will produce the display controller chips, while the TSMT will produce the screen modules; the final assembly of the tablets will be done by Foxconn.
Also according to the article, the new iPad Pro are already undergoing production tests. There are no comments on other possible news of the future generation, but other recent rumors have been talking about 5G connection and an A14X chip with even better performance – a list of news, in my view, still quite squalid. We will have to follow the rumors to find out what else Apple has in mind … if anything, in this case.
In time: the The Elec also corroborated that Apple will launch new monitors and Macs with Mini-LED screens in the future, but without specifying timelines or source details. It would be a good one, wouldn’t it?
