iPad Pro 2022 Models to Feature Mini-LED Displays: Ming-Chi Kuo
Rather than a mini-LED display being limited to just the high-end 12.9-inch iPad Pro, Apple plans to make the new display technology also available on the smaller 11-inch iPad Pro next year, according to well respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
A new investor note by Kuo was accessed by MacRumors and it suggests that Apple is planning to introduce Mini LED technology on many of its devices next year. The Cupertino company is likely going to introduce it on the rumoured 2022 MacBook Air and on both 11-inch and 12.9-inch 2022 models of iPad Pro. Apart from this, Kuo does not reveal other specifications of the next-gen iPad Pro models.
A recent report from Bloomberg claims that the 2022 models of iPad Pro may support wireless charging. Apple is testing a glass back for the iPad Pro to enable wireless charging for the first time and attempting to try out reverse wireless charging. Designs for the new iPad Pro are reportedly in early stages and plans could change or be cancelled before next year's launch.
While Mini-LED technology adoption is increasing, Apple is reportedly also looking to introduce OLED display panels on iPads in 2022. According to a recent report, Apple is working on three new iPads, two of which are scheduled to launch sometime in 2023, and one of them is expected to arrive in 2022. All of the iPad models are reported to feature OLED displays.
