This weekend, a new leak appeared on the web about the release of the first iPad for 2021; and judging by the characteristics, we have exactly the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The most interesting part of the leak is information about the display technology.
The new iPad Pro may be the first tablet to feature a Mini-LED display. If this becomes true, then we will have a large number of devices with large and high-quality screens.
According to Digitimes, Information about the first iPad coming next year is now available. The next iPad will feature many of the same features as the latest iPad Pro; meaning the company is still trying to replace your laptop with a tablet.
The next-generation iPad Pro, in turn, should be the first device with the new A-series chip to be used in Apple mobile devices throughout the year.
The 12.9-inch iPad Pro will likely have a display that beats all other iPads, and more likely the latest iPhones. Moreover, it is with the iPad Pro that, according to rumors, the expansion of new displays made using Mini-LED technology will begin.
The sources of Digitimes also revealed that Apple is ready to launch a new iPhone lineup with flexible OLED panels. According to their materials, the next iPhone will not be a clamshell. The company will again make rounded edges, but with an emphasis on the “screen-waterfall” form factor.
