The recent supply chain report confirms the previous announcement that Apple’s first device to use a mini LED panel will be the new iPad Pro, which will be launched in the first quarter of 2021. Previous sources have projected that Apple will announce a mini LED-equipped iPad Pro by the end of 2020. Now, the press conference has been postponed due to the effect of the coronavirus, according to Digitimes.
Related supply manufacturers said that mini LED chip mass shipments would be delayed from the previously scheduled end of 2020 to the second or third quarter of 2021 due to the effects of the latest crown epidemic. Nevertheless, in the first quarter of 2021, mini LED chip shipments will begin to contribute to consolidated revenue.
Based on this and other undisclosed industry reports, Digitimes inferred that, likely in the first quarter of 2021, Apple is planning to announce a 12.9-inch mini LED backlit iPad Pro. Digitimes has an outstanding track record of supply chain intelligence sources, but is far behind in extrapolating plans from Apple. The mini-LED fitted iPad Pro is scheduled to be launched in the first quarter of 2021. Mini LEDs have improved reproduction of color and contrast. This is also a backlight type that is more power-efficient.
