Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had earlier suggested that Apple would release a mini-LED version of its 12.9-inch iPad Pro during the first half of 2021, and a new report now apparently confirms the rumor.
According to Mac Rumors – quoted by Taiwanese media DigiTimes The American technology giant has hired a company called GIS for a range of mini LED backlight panels for its 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, which will be released in the first quarter of next year.
If the reports are true, the iPad Pro will get a significant upgrade in terms of its performance, as mini-LED technology can offer richer colors, while also adapting to darker blacks and brighter whites, creating greater contrast. The use of thousands of individual LEDs also offers many of the benefits that OLED screens offer, minus many of its disadvantages, such as reducing the “burn-in” when an image remains static for a long period of time.
Of course, Apple has not yet made any official announcements about its iPad series for next year. Those who want to buy a next generation model should definitely stay tuned for more updates.
