Apple has tied up with GIS to provide the mini-LED backlit panels for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, the report stated. Apple will launch its first iPad Pro with a mini-LED display in Q1 2021. The exact Apple iPad Pro launch date is currently unknown.
Previously, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had said that the iPad Pro with mini-LED will go into mass production in Q4 2020. Apple typically hosts its Q1 events in March. It is possible that the company will release the new iPad Pro with a mini LED display in March 2021.
Mini-LED displays offer better wide colour gamut performance with high contrast and HDR. The new displays would also support local dimming, which will dim the backlight behind the screen’s area that is displaying black, keeping the other parts bright.
The use of mini-LEDs will also result in thinner and lighter product designs.
Kuo had previously said that Apple would update the iPad Pro and MacBook line with mini-LED displays
between late 2020 and mid-2021. The company is said to be working on a total of six new products with mini-LEDs
, including a new 14.1-inch MacBook Pro.
