iPad Pro with mini-LED display to be launched soon

San Francisco – According to DigiTimes, Apple has for long been working on an iPad Pro with a mini-LED display. A new report claims it will be launched in Q1 of 2021. Apple has expanded its supply chain for screens and touch panels. Meanwhile, display maker BOE has received approval for supplying display panels for iPhones and GIS will provide touch panels for both iPhone and iPad Pro. GIS (General Interface Solutions) has already allotted around $76.3 million in investments in China. These investments will help GIS for expanding operations at its subsidiary in Chengdu. There are a total of six products in the pipeline ranging from iPads to Macs. Apple will accelerate mini-LED panels’ adoption because of their better performance in current testing. The main barrier to adoption is the micro-LED manufacturing process, which is complicated. The increased supply capacity and competition among suppliers will reportedly drive Apple’s cost for mini-LED display dies from $75-$85 down to around $45. 30-40 per cent of iPads shipped in 2021 may feature the new display tech, alongside 20-30 per cent of MacBooks. Earlier, Apple was granted a patent for a fitness band that may use micro-LED, but there’s no confirmation if the company is actually planning to enter that segment. Apple could also use the micro-LED display panel for the seventh-generation Apple Watch.
