Apple's novel miniLED displays may land as soon as the iPad Pro 2021, after all
Macotakara that often leaks supply chain stories that turn out to be true, spilled some beans on the upcoming iPad plans for 2021 but they were mostly underwhelming - that the fall iPad and the spring iPa Pro models will remain largely unchanged on the outside.The Japanese Apple-centric blog
Apple iPad Pro 2021 display specs and release
Now, however, it is back with more information, and this time around it has better news when it comes to the new features that the Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2021) and the Apple iPad Pro 11-inch (2021) may carry.
iPad Pro models which will apparently be greatly reduced, and their placing repositioned around the sides for a cleaner, more streamlined look.First off, there will be redesign, albeit subtle in terms of visible changes, and not only a chipset upgrade to an Apple A14X. The main target would be the abundance of speaker grills around the 2020
Second, the camera island on the back would still stick out like a sore thumb, but this time around the lens rings will be flush with its surface - again suggesting a more refined, cleaner look.
The most exciting piece of news in the new report, however, is that the rumored miniLED iPad display revolution could still be happening, albeit just for the larger Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2021). It will, reportedly, be a fraction of an inch thicker than last year's iPad Pro 12.9 model, indicating that something new may be happening with its display technology, as Apple usually slims its devices down rather than fatten them up from one edition to the next.
What are the advantages of miniLED? Well, the panel will still be LCD (sorry, OLED fans), but the LED backlighting is split into numerous tiny sources almost commensurate with the number of individual pixels in the display's resolution. This leads to much better brightness, contrast and color control that some say is commensurate with OLED screens, so we hope that the new iPad Pro 12.9 will land with this new type of display.
