Apple to Launch 12.9-inch iPad Pro and 16-inch MacBook in 2020

Apple is likely to launch its new 12.9-inch iPad Pro and 16-inch MacBook in the year 2020 with several significant changes. Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple analyst in a report, revealed, both these devices will come with a mini LED display that will replace the existing OLED display. Kuo predicts the company may release 4-6 new devices with MiniLED displays over time. It may accelerate the industry responsible for developing the mini LED displays. He further stated that the iPad Pro would have a more powerful A14X processor. Indeed, Apple will be introducing major design upgrades in its iPhones next.


Additionally, we will see the company launching the budget iPhone SE2 and AR Glasses in the upcoming year. Earlier, Apple was expected to upgrade the iPad Pro in October this year which did not happen. However, the exact time of launch is not confirmed yet. We are hopeful that the technology will trickle down to its more affordable offerings.


The well-known Apple analyst Kuo said the mini-LED displays would "significantly improve productivity and the entertainment experience," and that LG displays and GIS will be the most significant benefactors. Previously, Kuo stated that future iPad and MacBook each will use near about 10,000 LEDs, compared to 576 in Apple's upcoming Pro Display XDR.

Know About Mini Led Display and Its Advantages

Mini-LED displays are a variation of regular LCDs coming with an up-gradation of LED backlights. The regular LED-backlit display has anywhere between a dozen to several hundred LEDs. But the Mini LED display uses miniaturized backlighting that can feature over a thousand full-array local dimming (FALD) zones. The LED will provide you with brighter displays along with a contrast ratio and deeper blacks. Moreover, the Mini LED display is cheaper than OLED display and less prone to burn-in than OLED display. All the laptops and tablets by Apple, LED-backlit displays are used rather than OLED screens.

According to Kuo, the Mini LED displays, offer "a rich wide colour gamut, a high contrast ratio, high dynamic range, and localized dimming." They also provide a sharper contrast than standard LCD panels. Kuo mentioned not anything about Apple making a similar switch from OLED displays to Mini LED displays in its iPhones.

New Release of iPhones May Feature 5G in 2020

Reports say the iPhone is expected to launch 5G in four of its latest launch in 2020. According to JP Morgan, the new iPhones may roll out in the second half of 2020 with two measuring 6.1-inch sizes, while the other two will be 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models. Although there is a twist, all of the phones will connect to 5G networks, but not in the same way. JP Morgan believes the two Pro models will be connected to faster mmWave 5G networks while the standard pair will only connect to lower-end 5G networks. There are a lot more things in progress in the United States. It will be great even if the cheapest iPhone next year supports some 5G.
