Ming-Chi Kuo differs from other analysts regarding one of Apple’s most anticipated updates
Analyst Ross Young and Apple device display forecaster Ming-Chi Kuo disagreed this week on the likelihood of Apple launching a product with new Mini-LED screen sizes in the rest of the year.
In the most recent of his intriguing and relevant tweets, Kuo revealed that the cause of the absence of an 11-inch iPad Pro with a Mini-LED display is nothing else that executive concerns about costwhich forces the project to be among the things to do next year.
Apple is reportedly launching a 27-inch Mini-LED monitor.
Some analysts partially contradict Kuo’s arguments, when they argue that the element of surprise contributed to the decision to delay the launch to 2023, since Apple will not be the first company in the world to use a Mini-LED display in its products, even though MSI announced the launch of its Mini-LED laptop “in a week”, to name just one example.
Kuo clarified that only existing Apple Mini-LED productslike the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, can be upgraded in 2022, without additional products to switch to Mini-LED this year. He also doesn’t think Apple will update the 11-inch iPad Pro with a Mini-LED display in the same timeframe.
In a way, Kuo’s statements also show that the Mini-LED versions of the 11-inch iPad Pro and the studio display won’t see the light of day in 2022 either. Current Apple products with Mini-LED displays are the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, 14-inch MacBook Pro, and 16-inch MacBook Pro..
For his part, screen industry consultant Ross Young said that Apple could launch a 27-inch monitor with Mini-LED in June. He even specified that the screen would have a 5K resolution and have ProMotion for a refresh rate of up to 120Hz.
Ross also prepared a report on the tablet market situation and ensured that Apple has decided to focus on Mini-LED technology for more expensive and larger screenswhich makes the postponement thesis more than probable.
Questioning Kuo and Young’s credibility on LED screens now hinges on whether Apple announces new mini-LEDMini-LED products this year or only updates existing Mini-LED devices.
