Apple is developing new iPads with mini LED screens

Apple is currently developing 6 mini LED products, Tianfeng Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in his latest research report released on Wednesday.

Kuo claims that these products include the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and 27-inch iMac Pro in Q4 of 2020, the 14.1-inch MacBook Pro, 16-inch MacBook Pro, 10.2-inch iPad and 7.9-inch iPad mini in 2020.

Kuo believes that the development of Apple products is completely unaffected by the new coronavirus pneumonia, and the commercial visibility is even higher than previously expected. The trend of its development and promotion of mini LED will be more obvious in the next 5 years.

The report predicts that Apple’s mid-to-large-sized products will, therefore, increase high-end product share and market share. It is expected that Apple ’s mini LED product shipments will increase significantly by approximately 300% YoY (year-on-year) and 225% YoY in 2020 and 2021.

He said that Apple mini LED has experienced explosive growth since Q4 of 2020, and it is expected that six products will be available before the end of 2021.

At the end of last year, Digital Times reported that Taiwan’s supply chain maker will supply Mini LED screens for Apple’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

Previous reports also showed that Apple plans to develop/launch 4-6 products using mini LED technology in 2020.

The 2020 iPad Pro is expected to be the first product equipped with a mini LED. It is expected to be mass-produced in the third quarter of 2020, equipped with an A14X processor and a 12.9-inch display; and Apple’s second product equipped with a mini LED display will be 16-inch Apple MacBook Pro.
