Apple analysts will start converting their devices to mini-LED technology from this year, according to Apple analyst yearMing-Chi Kuoh, and a new DigiTimes On Thursday, the report reiterated Kuo’s expectation that a mini-LED version of Apple’s MacBook Air is scheduled to arrive in 2022.
Kuo believes that Apple will release the iPad Pro model and redesign the MacBook Pros in 2021, followed by a new MacBook Air in 2022, with all mini-LED displays and Apple Silicon chips. Today’s DigiTimes The report, citing supply chain sources, echoed the general sentiment:
Sources expect Apple’s 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros and 16-inch MacBook Pro to be released in 2021 will be equipped with minilade displays, and in 2022 its MacBook Air products will expand to adopt minilade.
In addition to redesigning the 16-inch MacBook Pro, Kuo said he expects to launch a redesigned 14-inch MacBook Pro in the second quarter or third quarter of this year. Kuo states that these MacBook Pro models will feature mini-LED displays for increased brightness, better contrast, richer colors and more.
MacBook Pro models are projected to be the main drivers of mini-LED panel shipments, as they will receive mini-LEDs ahead of the iPad and see rapid shipment growth.
As a result, Apple will likely introduce the Mini-LED as a “Pro” Mac feature, although Kuo believes the company will be able to offset the increased cost as the cost of Apple Silicon chips compared to Intel processors Is low enough to allow its technology to bring its most popular MacBook down further.
In Kuo’s optimistic landscape, MacBook shipments are growing by 100 percent over the next three years, up to 35 million units per year, thanks to Silicon’s adoption of Apple Silicon and refreshed designs.
