Apple has innovated its products and if sometimes it seems that they are stagnant, there appears a technology that changes all the manufacturer’s products and that’s exactly what happened with the new iPad Pro. This time, the new iPad Pro brought a new one screen technology that allowed us to offer a great qualitative leap, and it is practically certain that this novelty will reach other products of the manufacturer. We are talking about Mini LED screens.
The recent iPad Pro already have this technology and it is already said that the next product to have this novelty will be the range of top laptops, the MacBook Pro, which should be announced later this year. However, well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo sent a new message to investors in which he stated that by mid-2022 there will be a new product with this technology, the MacBook Air.
Ming-Chi Kuo had already made this prediction before, however now it has a more specific deadline. It also suggests that the new Air will have a slightly smaller screen than the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros that are on the way later this year.
Mini LED is a relatively new display technology that has been designed to deliver some of the benefits of OLED – such as better contrast levels and improved dynamic range – without the risks of burning.
Kuo previously listed about half a dozen Apple devices scheduled to migrate to the new displays, including a 27-inch iMac Pro, 14.1-inch MacBook Pro, 16-inch MacBook Pro, 10.2 iPad, and 7-inch iPad Mini. 9 inches.
Along with the new display technology, the next MacBook Air will feature MagSafe charging, a slimmer and lighter design, as well as two USB 4 ports. Bloomberg has previously reported that the new Air will be powered by a “direct successor” to the M1 processor. year. The new chip includes the same number of CPU cores, running at faster speeds, and a higher number of GPU cores. The current M1 processor is available with seven or eight GPU cores, while the new model will reportedly include nine or 10, meaning a nice update.
The new MacBook Air is expected to follow the revamped MacBook Pros, which are expected to arrive in the third quarter of this year. The laptops will be available with 14-inch or 16-inch screens (Mini LED, according to Kuo) with a new, more square design. MagSafe charging, HDMI ports and SD card slots are also included. There’s also information that the MacBook Pro’s OLED bar could be dropped this year, but we’ll have to wait and see.
