Apple's next iPad Pro could have a mini-LED display

Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (who has a reputation for largely accurate Apple predictions) believes that Apple will start using mini LED displays in its devices in late 2020, starting with updated versions of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (what, no love for the 11-inch model?) and the 16-inch MacBook Pro. The company is also apparently planning to introduce a refreshed 16-inch MacBook Pro with the new mini-LED displays in Q4 2020.

"Kuo has also previously said that future iPad and MacBook displays will each use approximately 10,000 LEDs, compared to 576 in Apple's upcoming Pro Display XDR", the report reads in part.

Apple did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment. Sprint, AT&T, and Boost Mobile carry these iPhones alongside more devices.

That could help Apple keep pace with Windows rivals that offer OLED displays, such as the Dell XPS 15 and HP Spectre X360 15.


Rumors of Apple incorporating mini-LED display technology into its product line have have been circulating for some time now, and Kuo's recent note seems to corroborate those earlier reports.

In theory, mini LED offers numerous benefits of OLED screens without the usual drawbacks. Unfortunately, the latest and greatest iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max aren't eligible for the Black Friday deal. He added that the screen will be 12.9 inches, and that the tablet will launch in the third quarter of 2020.

Mr Kuo told MacRumours the screens will "significantly improve productivity and the entertainment experience".

Apple launched its all-new MacBook Pro last month.
