Asked for more details by email, Kuo clarified that only Apple’s existing mini-LED products such as the 12.9-inch iPad Pro can be updated in 2022, with no additional products to transition to mini-LED this year. Not there. For example, Kuo said he doesn’t expect Apple to update the 11-inch iPad Pro with a mini-LED display this year.

Apple’s current products with mini-LED displays include the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, the 14-inch MacBook Pro, and the 16-inch MacBook Pro.

If true, Kuo’s tweet suggests that there will also be no mini-LED version of the Studio Display released this year. This prediction conflicts with information shared by display industry consultant Ross Young, who said earlier this week that Apple may launch a 27-inch monitor with Mini-LED in June. Young said that he believes the display will have 5K resolution and may feature promotions of up to 120Hz refresh rate.

Both Kuo and Young have respectable track records regarding display-related information for future Apple products, so it will be interesting to see if Apple announces any new Mini-LED products this year or just existing Mini-LEDs. Updates devices.
