The Mini LED is expected to be used in anywhere between four to six devices over the next two or three years.
Apple has been reported to be planning big changes for next year’s iPads and Macs. It is unclear yet so as to what exactly the new technology is. TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said in a note to investors that Apple will transition to Mini LED technology from 2020.the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is first expected to get a Mini Led screen in the third quarter of next year followed by the 16 inch MacBook Pro in the fourth quarter. According to Kuo, the Mini LED is expected to be used in anywhere between four to six devices over the next two or three years. The Mini LED technology is still in its infancy stage and is not found in any of the devices from the top companies today. Most of the devices today are LCD, Led-backlit and OLED. Apple uses LCD and OLED displays for its devices currently. The LCD screens offer solid pictures but do not deliver good black levels or bright and vibrant visuals. The OLED offers near-perfect black levels and bright visuals. OLED technology is light and thin making it a perfect choice for companies looking to deliver slim devices with vibrant displays to their users. One of the biggest flaws of the OLED screens is the ‘burn-in’. If a picture is left on the screen for too long, the image gets ‘burned in’ on the screen and its shadow is going to be visible on the screen from then onwards whenever the device is used. The Mini LED does not have this flaw. However, it is very expensive technology and that is probably why Apple wants to use it for its high-end models.
