Apple CEO Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple is working on a high-end iPad and MacBook with the most advanced model. The boards are based on mini-LED technology and are expected to reach the market between mid-2020 and mid-2020.
Both, the MacBook and iPad, use 10,000 LEDs for display, and this is a big jump from the 576 LEDs in Apple’s next Pro XDR display. Each LED is less than 2000 microns in size. Tablets are between 10 and 12 ′ ′ for the iPad Pro and 15-17 ′ ′ for the MacBook Pro.
Since OLED ads are so much simpler and easier to operate, we think Apple will not be seen anywhere else until microLED technology is mature. However, the Mini-Led is better than OLED with less fire resistance. In addition, going the Mini-LED route will dampen Apple’s reliance on Samsung, as giant Korean technology still dominates the small and large OLED market.
The Mini-LED display enables compact and lightweight designs as you offer functions similar to that of an OLED display.
Apple is said to be using LG Display as its main Mini-LED supplier, with the help of Epistar, Zhen Ding, Radiant Opto-Electronics, Nichia, Avary Tenure and TSMT.
Technology will be the first flagship of next year’s iPad series and will be added to the MacBook Pro series soon afterwards.
