It seems that Apple may have to wait a bit longer to introduce Mini-LED technology to the smaller variant of its iPad Pro lineup. We received information from a very reliable source claiming that Apple won’t be using these panels in the 11-inch iPad Pro, and it seems that Apple may also consider making us wait a bit longer to receive a Mini-LED Studio Display.
According to well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple may take longer to deliver new products with Mini-LED displays. The first post mentioning this possibility was posted a week ago, where he claimed that “Apple may not launch new mini-LED products this year due to cost concerns.” But today, he also added that “there may be no new products with the new mini-LED display size in 2022.”
He later revealed more details about his tweet, as he clarified that the only new Mini-LED product scheduled to launch in 2022 is the new iteration of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. This means that Kuo doesn’t believe that Apple will launch other new products with this tech. This includes the possible 11-inch iPad Pro.
We know that Ming-Chi Kuo has a fantastic record when talking about upcoming Apple products, but we must take every rumor with salt. We have also received information from another reliable source claiming that Apple may launch a new, more affordable version of the Studio Display with a Mini-Led display. This new 27-inch Mini-Led display is rumored to launch as soon as June, and it could arrive with 5K resolution, ProMotion, and up to 120Hz refresh rates, or at least that’s what Ross Young believes. On a positive note, June is just three months away, so we will see who was right without waiting that long.
