The latest Apple iPads have been rumored for months, with some sources, including Bloomberg, claiming that they will be released in the first half of 2021. However, a recent report from Bloomberg confirms the rumor, stating that the new iPads will be available later this month.
The new iPads will be available later this month
The 12.9-inch iPad Pro will move to a mini-LED display with better contrast ratio and saturation
Upcoming iPads will be powered by the A14X chipset, which is said to be as powerful as Apple’s M1 silicon
Despite the fact that mini-LED displays are in short supply. It’s worth noting that these new iPads are the talk of the town because they’ll be the first Apple devices to use mini-LED screen technology, which promises a higher contrast ratio and saturation. LCD screens are also expected to be replaced by these new panels.
According to the report, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will move to a mini-LED display with better contrast ratio and saturation.
According to Bloomberg, Apple may release two iPad Pro tablets this month, citing anonymous sources. The larger iPad Pro model, probably the 12.9-inch model, will get the mini-LED screen, while the other models will have the LCD display. According to the report, there are a few manufacturing issues with the top-tier iPad Pro’s mini-LED display, resulting in a limited initial supply.
According to the news article, although the announcement is expected in the second half of this month, the more premium mini-LED iPad Pro models will arrive at store shelves in days or weeks.
The report stated that, “Apple still intends to announce updated iPad Pro tablets in two sizes as early as this month, other people familiar with its product road map said. The Mini LED screen, which will improve contrast ratios and deliver a brighter picture, will be exclusive to the pricier 12.9-inch model. The production hiccup could mean that the larger iPad Pro will ship later and be available in constrained quantities to begin with”.
According to previous rumors, the latest iPad Pro models will have camera updates as well as Thunderbolt connectivity via the USB-C connector. According to one source, these upcoming devices will be powered by the A14X chipset, which is said to be as powerful as Apple’s M1 silicon.
