The Pro Display
We’ve heard reports that Apple would be adding mini-LED panels to this year’s iPad Pro models, yet that doesn’t seem to have materialized. Instead, Apple is continuing to use the edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display, the same technology that it debuted on the iPhone XR and still uses on the iPhone 11.
So in other words, Apple hasn’t even yet switched to OLED for the iPad, much less mini-LED, although it’s undoubtedly made some minor improvements in the LCD display technology, and of course it still supports the ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate and True Tone technology.
While the reports of a switch to mini-LED suggested a fall release, it seems extremely unlikely that Apple will introduce new iPad Pro models with new display technology only six months from now, so we suspect we won’t see this until 2021.
