As early as September 2019, famous Apple analyst Guo Mingdi predicted that the next iPad Pro will use the Mini LED screen, and today there is news to confirm this prediction. The contrast effect of Mini LED is similar to OLED, but the cost may be lower than OLED, and it can also be used as a springboard into Micro LED technology in the future, so Apple is very interested in Mini LED.
According to a report from Taiwan's Economic Daily, Innolux has sent Mini LEDs to Apple for use in the iPad Pro, which will be launched in the second half of the year. This is also the first cooperation between Innolux and Apple. Innolux is an important panel layout of Hon Hai Group, so it is more convenient for Apple to manage in the supply chain. Of course, Innolux also invests a lot in the field of Mini LED. For example, the original Active Matrix Mini LED technology can reduce the spacing between LEDs and reduce the overall design cost.
