Apple introduced the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with Mini-LED display this year but did not include it in the 11-inch iPad Pro model. According to a new investor note obtained by MacRumors, Apple plans to introduce Mini LED technology on many of its devices next year. The Cupertino company is expected to introduce it on the rumored 2022 MacBook Air, as well as on both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch 2022 iPad Pro models. Aside from that, Kuo does not reveal any other details about the next-generation iPad Pro models..
While Mini-LED technology is becoming more popular, Apple is reportedly planning 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 expected to be released in 2023 and one in 2022. According to reports, all iPad models will have OLED displays.
The iPad, which is expected to be released next year, may have a 10.86-inch OLED screen. To protect the OLED panel from moisture and oxygen, Apple is said to use a Thin-Film Encapsulation (TFE) method. The screen size is similar to the current iPad Air, implying that the new iPad expected in 2022 could be the next-generation iPad Air. The iPad Pro 2023 models may also have OLED displays, according to reports.
Mini-LED prices may become more affordable by next year, but they are still likely to raise the price of the mini-LED iPad Pro 11 next year. The new 2022 iPad Air, which is expected to make its own transition from LCD to OLED, will then be the less expensive alternative to the iPad Pro 11.
