Rumors keep pouring in from Apple’s supply chain. In this case, DigiTimes informs us of the expected arrival dates of Mini-LED screens to Macs. According to the publication, it will be this year that we will see the first screen, although it was not until the following year that it reached more computers in the range.
MacBook Pro this year and MacBook Air in 2022
Ming-Chi Kuo predicted just over a month ago that we would see two new MacBook Pros with a new form factor and a miniLED display. One of these computers would be the one that has not yet been presented 16-inch MacBook Pro which, in addition to the new screen technology, would mount an M1 or M1X chip inside.
Apple plans to adopt miniLED displays for its new iPad and MacBook Pro in 2021, while Samsung Electronics plans to launch a miniLED tablet and Micro-Star International (MSI) a miniLED laptop, supply chain sources say. .
Sources expect Apple’s 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pros, due out in 2021, will feature miniLED displays, and miniLED adoption will expand to its MacBook Air products in 2022.
The information is quite clear: new 16-inch MacBook Pro this year and new MacBook Air next year. The other MacBook Pro Kuo talked about in his last report could be a 14-inch MacBook Pro. It would make sense if Apple decided to take the M1 into the high end of the 13in MacBook Pro, which still uses Intel processors today, and also give the design a facelift.
It is clear that Apple has prepared some very interesting novelties for Mac computers, the arrival of the M1 is in itself a reason to buy for many of us, if in addition the computers receive a miniLED display and a redesign, we are faced with a winning combination. TrentForce’s approach to M1 market share may even be insufficient.
