Apple to launch new iPad, MacBook with miniLED displays in late 2020

Apple has been rumored to be making the switch from OLED to mini-LED display panels for a little while now. We're interested in seeing what Apple will accomplish with its new displays that would "significantly" improve user productivity.

Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The new 12.9-inch iPad is said to be released in the third quarter of 2020, while the new 16-inch MacBook Pro would debut in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Additionally, Kuo expects that Apple will release more Mini-LED hardware over the next two to three years.

Apple did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.

All that said, Kuo's report raises an obvious question: What's the benefit of transitioning to mini-LED displays?

Google Founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin Step Down
Before today, Larry Page and Sergey Brin were CEO and President of Alphabet - now that job goes to the CEO of Google . Alphabet has, since inception, had Larry Page as CEO and Sergey Brin as President.

Apple is offering up to £160 in credit on its Apple Store Gift Cards for select products.

Kuo has been ogling his Cupertino crystal ball again and reiterated his prediction that Apple will make the shift to mini-LED display panels next year.

In theory, mini LED offers numerous benefits of OLED screens without the usual drawbacks.

Shoppers can choose between the Apple iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max depending on preferences and needs. If it does, another new 12.9-inch model in fall 2020 would certainly be an early addition to the range. Renowned TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported that fact in a new research note issued to investors on Monday.

The 16-inch MacBook Pro will come soon behind, with a Q4 unveil, but there's no word on what will power the machine (presumably the latest Intel chips). The company hasn't refreshed its iPad Pro line since October in 2018, but Bloomberg reports that the company is planning to release a new model next year with 3-D cameras.
