The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the model that is intended for embrace mini-LED technology on your screen. From DigiTimes they assure it, where they also place its launch for the first quarter of 2021. This model would thus become the first of the company to incorporate mini-LED technology on its screen.
Mini-LED on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro
GIS has approved investments of $ 76.3 million and $ 50.5 million proposed by its subsidiary in Chengdu, China, in August and November 2020, respectively, with the focus of funds on expanding capacity for integrated touch modules used in tablets, according to sources. The subsidiary currently produces integrated touch modules for the iPad and MacBook, the sources said.
In addition to iPhone, GIS will produce integrated touch modules for mini-LED panels of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro that will be released in the first quarter of 2021, according to the sources.
Of course, it’s not the first time we’ve heard news of the arrival of this type of screens to the iPad. In fact, a month ago Ming-Chi Kuo made a similar prediction. In it, it specified that the mini-LED would reach the iPad Pro and the MacBook Pro with M1 in the first half of 2021.
It’s important to note that while only the larger iPad Pro is mentioned, that doesn’t mean the 11-inch iPad Pro isn’t going to have this technology. Apple has two or more providers for each product, model or component, distributing production according to its capacity or costs. So even though GIS is mentioned here, the 11-inch iPad Pro could have mini-LED technology from another company.
If the 2020 iPad Pro were presented via a press release, the inclusion of this technology might well involve a keynote in spring. All kinds of accessories and new models of existing products are expected that could be keynote material. From the AirTags to a redesigned 13-inch MacBook Pro, through these iPad Pro and maybe some redesigned AirPods 3.
