2 minute read

San Francisco: Apple has been long rumoured to be working on an iPad Pro with a mini-LED display and now a new report has claimed that it will be launched in the first quarter of 2021.

In a new report, the outlet notes that Apple has been diversifying its supply chain for displays and touch panels. Last November, renowned display analyst Ross Young debunked claims that Samsung and LG would supply OLED panels for iPad Pro. GIS will provide touch panels for the iPhone and the upcoming iPad Pro.

According to reports as far back as March, Apple is planning to use the new Mini-LED technology in at least six new devices, from redesigned 16-inch and 14-inch MacBook Pro computers right down to a 7.9-inch iPad mini. Reports have suggested that this iPad will bring a number of new features and also add improvements over current iPad displays. Despite being a "Pro", Apple's iPad Pro 2020 still doesn't have an OLED tech.


Mini-LED displays offer better wide colour gamut performance with high contrast and HDR. This would not only result in more dimming areas but also darker black tones. According to a tipster, the mini-LED screen's mass production will commence from January 2021, so it's likely we'll see it in a few months. The technology is said to offer numerous benefits offered by OLED display but without some of the drawbacks of OLED.

Apple has always been said to be working on an iPad Pro with a mini-LED display, and now we finally have information on when that can come true.

These iPads will benefit from the advanced technology that offers numerous features offered by OLED as they use individual LEDs to illuminate and dim the screen to produce the images on the screen.
