iPad Pro 2022 11-inch model will feature mini LED display: Ming Chi Kuo

The mini LED display is so far exclusive to 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2021.

Highlights
  • Both 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2022 models will reportedly benefit from mini-LED displays
  • The technology was recently introduced with the iPad Pro 2021 12.9-inch model
  • The next-gen iPad Pro specifications are also expected to include wireless charging

Apple may make mini LED displays a common feature on 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2022. So far, the technology is limited to the iPad Pro 2021 12.9-inch model. The 11-inch iPad Pro 2021 sports a slightly inferior Liquid Retina display. A new investor note by TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that this will all change next year. Even the 11-inch iPad Pro 2022 is said to sport a mini LED display that is better than the Liquid Retina display in every possible way. Previous reports have claimed that the next-gen iPad Pro models may support wireless charging and tout glass back.

Kuo report, accessed by MacRumors, further added that Apple could add mini LED technology on devices beyond iPad Pro 2022. There are rumours that the tech is going to be introduced on MacBook Air 2022. Additionally, the Cupertino-based firm is also said to be working on three new iPads, two of which are expected to launch sometime in 2023. One of them could arrive as early as 2022, with a 10.86-inch OLED display. The screen size is similar to the current iPad Air, which suggests that the new iPad could be the next iPad Air. The 2023 models of the iPad Pro will also reportedly have OLED displays. The displays of these new iPads could bear a Thin-Film Encapsulation (TFE) to protect the panel from moisture and oxygen.

That’s all the details we could divulge at the moment. Having said that, Apple is yet to confirm any of these developments, so we would advise you to take the information with a grain of salt.
