Apple likely launch iPad Pros with 5G mini-LED displays in 2021
Apple plans to refresh its iPad Pro lineup. The company is likely to launch 2021 iPad Pros with 5G capabilities owing to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X55 5G modem an anonymous Twitter user has shared details of a potential new pair of iPad Pro models. The account which shared the details is L0vetodream on Twitter. L0vetodream is an anonymous Twitter account, so it might be a rumor.
According to Apple leaker L0vetodream, if Apple does use that modem, the new iPad Pros could take advantage of both sub-6GHz 5G and the faster mmWave 5G and ensure that their tablets are fast whenever working over these connections.
L0vetodream also said that iPad Pros could be getting Mini-LED displays. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had also in December 2019 that a 12.9-inch iPad Pro with Mini-LED could launch in Q3 2020.
Analyst Kuo had also said that Apple is interested in Mini-LED panels because they offer similar benefits to OLED screens, in which each pixel can get its backlight improving contrast ratios, localized dimming, and a wide color gamut for a user. The mini-LED will be better than OLED, as it is paired with a 120Hz refresh rate that will help create a stunning screen for the user.
L0vetodream also added that the new iPad Pros may also have an A14X chipset, likely a variant on the A14 chip the 2020 iPhone line will use and this could launch in Q1 or Q2 of 2021 which is later than what Kuo had predicted. L0vetodream claims Apple’s 2021 iPad Pros will feature an A14X.
Apple has been testing Apple Watch models with MicroLED screens since 2017, and rumors prevailing have also suggested an Apple Watch with a MicroLED display could debut as soon as this year.
L0vetodream has made accurate predictions in the past, revealing several details about the new iPhone SE, and new iPad Pro models. L0vetodream makes safe guesses and recently said that that 5G is coming to iPad Pros shortly, given that 5G is rumored to come to iPhones this year. L0vetodream’s full rumor track record can be seen on AppleTrack.
Even though L0vetodream suggests these new iPad Pros will ship in either Q1 or Q2 of 2021, the users need to wait and see whether all of this will come in the first half of next year or earlier and also whether all predictions are true or not.
