Apple iPad Pro with mini-LED display has been doing the rounds of the Internet for quite some time now. Several reports in the past have tipped that the Cupertino giant is eyeing late April for the launch of its next generation of iPad and iPad Pro. As per the latest report by Bloomberg, Apple’s mini-LED suppliers have apparently run into production issues ahead of the rumoured launch.
The report cites people in the know of things who claim that the suppliers are facing “poor manufacturing yields” with one of the suppliers even having to pause the production due to the said issues. Having said that, the report reaffirms that Apple is still on track to launch two new iPad Pro tablets sometime in the second half of April.
The key players in supplying mini-LED display to Apple include Taiwan-based Ennostar Inc, Taiwan Surface Mounting Technology and General Interface Solution Holding, the report states.
The Mini-LED display is expected to offer better colours, improved contrasts, brighter imagery and will overall be an improvement over the previous generation iPad Pro. The Mini-LED display is expected to be featured on the top-end 12.9-inch model of the iPad Pro and if the production issues are taken into account, this variant could witness a deferred availability at launch.
Since more and more people had to start working from home due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Apple’s iPad lineup has been a saviour for students and professionals alike. That trend is expected to continue as Apple gears up to launch the next generation of iPad Pro which is rumoured for sometime later this month.
