Apple may bring MacBook Air with a mini-LED display by 2022
Apple may bring Mini-LED displays to its MacBook Air by 2022 and iPad Air models from the same year will come with OLED displays. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reportedly shared the development in a research note. There have been reports in the past suggesting that Apple will soon release its Mini-LED display MacBook and iPad Pro models, and it appears that these displays will be exclusive to iPad Pro models when it comes to tablets.
According to a report by 9to5Mac citing a research note from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple you can bring your MacBook Air with Mini-LED display next year. The note indicates that the new iPad Pro models will also use Mini-LED display technology, but other iPad models will use OLED displays. Kuo adds that next year’s iPad Air will come with an OLED screen. The OLED displays the company plans to use for the iPad models will be flat, as opposed to the iPhone OLED displays that curve at the bottom. This means that the displays will be relatively cheaper to produce.
However, considering that OLED displays (in some cases) suffer from burning or permanent image retention, Apple will not bring this technology to its iPad Pro or MacBook models, according to the report. This is not the first time that an OLED display has been proposed for upcoming Apple products as a report earlier this month suggested that its next iPad and MacBook models will come with OLED displays. However, with the latest information, it appears that OLED displays will be exclusive to iPad models other than iPad Pro and of course iPhone models.
Apple brings its iPad Pro models with Mini-LED in April. They can have a screen size of 11 inches and 12.9 inches and will be powered by a new processor that is said to be on par with Apple’s M1 processor. These iPad Pro 2021 models may also come with a Thunderbolt USB Type-C port. It should be noted that Apple has not shared any details about the upcoming devices.
