Rumors have spread out that Apple has been working on an iPad and MacBook highlighting Mini-LED display appearances for months, and a new agenda note from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has now set a date on when to anticipate the feature: late 2020.
Kuo had basically disclosed the rumor that Apple was operating on laptops and tablets with the new screen technology beginning of this year, but after some time, they settled the time as either 2020 or 2021. The new analyst note clears it all, foretelling that Apple will deliver both an iPad Pro and a 16-inch MacBook Pro with new highlights Mini-LED screen in the next year.
According to Kuo’s statement, the iPad Pro update will appear in Q3 2020 and also highlight an updated A14X processor (presumably an iPad-specific variant of Apple’s 2020 iPhone processor). The MacBook Pro would follow at a later date in Q4, similar to the timing of the popular 16-inch MacBook Pro’s launch. Moreover, Kuo assumes that Apple will deliver more Mini-LED hardware over the next coming years.
As of total, Kuo anticipates that Apple will deliver 4-6 products with mini-LED by the next year. Apple’s selection of highlight is supposed to “boost up the mini LED market development.”
As by analyst Kuo, Apple is interested in Mini-LED panels particularly over OLED for its bigger display devices as they offer comparable benefits and advantages, like confined dimming, a wide color gamut, and high variance and dynamic range, without the downsides — specifically, OLED burn-in, which could offer a particular difficulty with the static screen components like the dock and menu bar on macOS.
Apple’s iPad timeline for 2020 still continues a bit unclear. Rumors have implied that Apple will deliver a new iPad Pro in early 2020. It is forever probable that Apple makes two improvements to the iPad Pro lineup next year, or that the 12.9-inch revision is preserved for the end of 2020 when the mini LED feature is ready.
