Apple plans MacBooks M1 with mini-LED display in 2021

Apple could unveil its first products with mini-LED screens in the course of 2021, according to the Digitimes site. The manufacturer would work MacBooks with M1 processor equipped with this technology. That would make two major revolutions in a year for the brand’s computers. An iPad Pro would also be on the program.

We’ve been talking about the arrival of mini-LED technology on MacBook screens for a long time. The thing seems to be confirmed according to the Digitimes site, which evokes an arrival of the computer with such a slab in the second half of the year 2021. More than that, Apple would also provide the announcement of an iPad Pro mini-LED in the first half of next year.

In addition to Digitimes, which relies on sources close to the factories, the famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo evokes a production of iPad Pro Mini-Led in the fourth quarter of the year 2020, that is to say now, for a release in the first six month of 2021. For MacBooks, we could count two models equipped: the MacBook Pro with a 14.4-inch screen as well as the 16.1-inch one, the first model of which was released in late 2019.

Revolutionary Mimi-LED technology

Mini-LED technology could bring great added value to Apple products. Indeed, this screen technology revolutionizes the way of using LEDs, and therefore the lighting, under the slab. In practice, this means a panel with a much higher maximum brightness, but also a better contrast ratio as well as a more controlled HDR. Likewise, whites displayed on blacks no longer “drool” as can be the case on a conventional LCD screen. The big advantage of this technology is that it does not cost more to produce than the LCD.

Apple could therefore strike hard with its MacBook Pro Mini-LED and take the opportunity to redesign its product. As a reminder, the Cupertino brand revolutionized its range a few weeks ago by presenting the MacBook (Air and Pro) with M1 processor. Based on ARM, this new SoC is entirely designed by Apple and in theory provides more power than an equivalent Intel processor. Eventually, Apple will get rid of all Intel components in its computers.
