Mini-LED may soon be the star of Apple’s product lineup

We reported Apple is considering using mini LED screens in its products in 2020 and now that has been backed up by another report from the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Mini-LED panels feature nearly the same benefits of OLED displays such as local dimming, wide colour gamut, and high contrast and dynamic range.

Head over to Amazon to order the new 32GB iPad today for $229.99 (a 30% savings), but hurry - we doubt that pricing will last much longer.

According to Kuo, Apple is interested in Mini-LED panels specifically over OLED for its larger devices as they offer similar benefits, like localized dimming, a wide color gamut, and high contrast and dynamic range, without the downsides - namely, OLED burn-in, which could present a particular challenge with the static screen elements like the dock and menu bar on macOS.

Looking at Apple's current form factors, that suggests more internal space for other components.

Kuo often gets his Apple predictions right, and going down the mini-LED route would certainly mean Apple could bring something a bit different to the market.

By Q3 2020, an upgraded iPad Pro could arrive with an A14X processor, followed by a 16-inch MacBook Pro in Q4.

Kuo reckons the mini-LED tech will pop up in the next-gen iPad Pro first with four to six products making use of the display tech over the coming years. We're interested in seeing what Apple will accomplish with its new displays that would "significantly" improve user productivity.

The main new information here is the release window, which previously Kuo had put at a vague late 2020 or early 2021. The iPad Mini 4 has a 7.9 inch Retina display while the iPad Air has a larger 10.5 inch screen.

At this point, it's worth noting that this timeline does appear to throw a wrench in our past iPad Pro expectations.
