Apple has been, slowly but surely, improving its hardware along with its software integrations. The company launched some of the best techs in the past year, with the new iPad Pros. Even the M1 Macs and the iPhones. Even the new AirPods Max, though pack a heavy price tag, Now, we have heard that the company is working on bringing the Mini-LED technology to its lineup for quite some time now. We heard that this would be seen in the MacBook Pro lineup or even the iPad Pro lineup and as we see some news, that seems to be the case.
According to this article from WCCFTECH, taking its source from DigiTimes, Apple has acquired other partners for its display needs. One of the companies in this is GIS. The company is tipped at providing Mini-LED technology for the upcoming iPad Pro. This quote, as said on the website is as follows:
…Besides iPhones, GIS will produce integrated touch modules for miniLED-backlit panels of 12.9-inch iPad Pro to be launched in first-quarter 2021, the sources noted.”
The tip continues to tell that the mass production would start somewhere in January of the upcoming year. This means that the company may be able to meet the timeline around March. This is usually when Apple holds the first event of the year. This is when they focus on the hardware side of things. It is usually when we see new iPads as well. There are reports that the first lineup of the M1 equipped Macs may receive this screen add-on as well. There is a chance that for the Macs, it may be an optional upgrade like the one on Apple Pro Display XDR.
