According to several people close to the Apple brand, Apple intends to release a new iPad Pro in early 2021. The latter would be equipped with a screen with a whole new technology, the mini LED. It offers many advantages over OLED, in particular better energy consumption, but also much better image contrast and better overall brightness management. The sources behind this information also explain that the mini LED reduces the risk of the screen heating up.
According to ET News, it is LG who should soon provide these new screens to Apple. Also according to this source, Apple plans to use these screens for MacBooks and iMacs during the year 2021, which should shake up the LCD market.
New screens for 2021?
For the analyst of the Cupertino company, Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will first switch its 12.9-inch iPad Pro to this new screen technology before touching the flagship 11-inch model.
According to the brand’s experts, this change should first take place on MacBooks and iMacs. So the new screen should have been presented to the public at the end of 2020 (during the event of November 10?)
But it’s now clear that Apple has changed the program and that these displays, like the iPhone 12s earlier this year, will hit the market, albeit with a delay. It should logically be presented during Apple’s first event in 2021.
