Ming-Chi Kuo: 11″ iPad Pro will also get mini LED screen next year

According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, next year’s 11-inch iPad Pro will also feature a mini LED screen, just like this year’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro. That type of screen allows a higher maximum brightness and facilitates local dimming with greater precision.

This year’s 11″ iPad Pro will still have a ‘regular’ LCD screen. Ming-Chi Kuo makes the prediction known in his latest investor note, which is held by MacRumors.com. He also expects the iPad Pros of 2022 will also have glass instead of aluminum backs to facilitate wireless charging.Kuo is more often right when it comes to forecasting Apple products.

At the end of last month, South Korean tech website The Elec came out with a rumor that Apple would also be working on an iPad with an OLED screen, which should also be released next year. This would be an unspecified model with a 10.8 “screen. This is probably the new generation iPad Air, since Apple has only just switched to mini LED for the iPad Pro.

The following year, in 2023, according to The Elec, two more iPads with OLED screens should follow, with diagonals of 11″ and 12.9″. Those are the same sizes as the iPad Pro, but whether it is the Airs or the Pros that will receive OLED screens in that year is not yet clear.
