(Pocket-lint) – Apple is planning to release a new version of the 11-inch iPad with a Mini LED display. It will debut in 2022, according to a research note by analyst Ming-chi Kuo (via Camel e Mac rumors ).
Mini LED is a new display technology that uses thousands of tiny LEDs to provide better contrast and HDR performance. The Cupertino company introduced Mini LED in the 12.9-inch iPad Pro this year, equipping the tablet with 2,500 local dimming zones. It also updated the 11-inch iPad Pro this year, but only the larger model received the new display technology.
However, both devices received M1 processors.
Kuo also said that Apple plans to bring Mini LEDs to its MacBook lineup, starting with 14-inch and 16-inch models that will be produced this quarter. A redesigned MacBook Air with Mini LED could also debut in 2022 – which he said before. Kuo also mentioned that cheaper iPads will have OLED panels.
It’s important to note that Bloomberg recently reported that Apple is considering the possibility of releasing a 14-inch to 16-inch iPad Pro sometime in the future. The largest iPad Pro currently available has a 12.9-inch screen, but to make it a true replacement for a laptop or MacBook, it has to be larger. However, if this product gets the green light, it will not be available for a while. Bloomberg said the larger models won’t be available for a few years “at least.” If so, we imagine they will also get Mini LED screens.
