The first Apple product with a miniled screen, according to TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, is a variant of the iPad Pro that should be released before the end of the year. After that, Apple wants to use the screen technology on many more devices.
It would be the large version of the iPad Pro with a 12.9 “screen, MacRumors claims based on a report from Kuo. Instead of a single backlight, a miniled screen has between a thousand and ten thousand LEDs behind the screen that individually control the software. can dim to display a higher contrast on the screen.
Manufacturing issues will allow Apple to get around 300,000 to 400,000 miniled screens by the end of the year, preventing the manufacturer from using the new screen technology in a range of products. That’s why, as Kuo said earlier, many of those products won’t be released until next year.
Apple announced the Pro Display XDR earlier this year. This $ 5000 or $ 6000 screen has 576 LEDs to dim parts of the screen. This is one faldbacklight, in which 576 zones can be dimmed individually. This is not yet a miniled screen, because the individual LEDs are still too large to be qualified as mini LEDs. Miniled is one of the techniques for making LCDs better.
