According to the reputed Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, both variants (11-inch & 12.9-inch) of the upcoming 2022 iPad Pro models will come equipped with the Mini-LED display. Apple, this time is planning to introduce the Mini-LED technology also to the 11-inch variant rather than just restricting it to the 12.9-inch variant. It will be convenient for users as with 2022 models, Mini-LED panels won’t be limited to just the high-end variant.
After Apple launched, the current 12.9-inch iPad Pro was launched with the mini-LED panel. It grabbed a lot of attention from consumers. But the mini-LED panel was only available on the higher 12.9-inch variant and not the 11-inch variant of the iPad Pro. There were no reasons from Apple regarding why this was the case, but many rumors indicate a supply chain shortage that caused problems in manufacturing the technology. But with the 2022 models of the iPad Pro, this won’t be the case as they will add the mini-LED panel on both variants. According to other reports by MacRumors, Apple would also like to integrate the mini-LED technology into other devices.
Some other features shared by Bloomberg also hint that the new 2022 models might come with wireless charging. This will be revolutionary as these will be the first iPad models with glass backs. It would be interesting to see how Apple incorporates this technology into their devices efficiently. There also talks about having iPad’s bigger than 12.9-inch, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. However, nothing has been officially confirmed, and consumers are pinned towards Apple to give out more details regarding the future devices they are planning.
The iPad Pro 2022 models will be powered with an M1 Apple processor chipset. It will also come with a smooth 120Hz display. Display size options for the iPad will be 12.9-inch and 11-inch, as the current version. Storage options for the same could range from 128GB to 2TB. The RAM options would include 8GB RAM & 16GB RAM. There have been rumors about them introducing OLED for some iPads in 2022. Still, according to the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the company would probably prefer integrating the mini LED, as they deliver higher refresh rates for the iPad Pro 2022 models. There have been no leaks or talks about the expected price for the 2022 iPad.
Concludingly, Apple has a lot planned for upcoming years when it comes to their iPads. It will be pretty interesting to observe how well these devices function after they are launched and are up for sale.
