Apple may release a high-end A14X chip-powered iPad Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro in 2020
There’s been talk of Apple shifting to mini-LED displays for their future products. The reason? Mini LED displays could provide 10,000 LEDs compared to 576 LEDs in backlight. Now, known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed that the iPhone maker may be planning to launch a high-end 12.9-inch iPad Pro with an A14X chip in the third quarter of 2020.
Rumours of a refreshed 16-inch MacBook Pro coming out in the fourth quarter of 2020 are doing rounds of the internet too. The American company supposedly prefers Mini-LED display panels over OLED—especially for its larger devices—because they offer advanced features such as local dimming, wide colour gamut, and high contrast and dynamic range. Additionally, Kuo expects that Apple will release more Mini-LED hardware over the next two to three years.
As of now, the top-of-the-line iPad is Air, as seen below.
Advantages of mini LED:
Higher contrast ratio
Less prone to burn-in than OLED
Uses inorganic Gallium nitride (GaN)
Won’t degrade over time like OLED
Additionally, other industry experts like Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis and his associates revealed that Apple's iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, due to be launched in September 2020 are going to sport 6GB RAM. The Cupertino-based company is expected to launch three iPhones next year and Barclays believes that iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro will feature mmWave 5G support. The iPhone maker is also planning to launch an affordable smartphone iPhone SE 2, with production reportedly slated to start in February.
The phone will have an A13 chip, which is also being used in iPhone 11, along with 3GB RAM and will have three colour options: silver, space grey and red.
