Word on the street has it that Apple is working on a long-overdue redesign of the iPad mini, which we have to say is probably the company’s most neglected tablet to date. However, it seems that this redesign could bring about more than just a new look, but it could also sport a new display.
In a report from DigiTimes, they claim that the upcoming iPad mini refresh is expected to feature the use of mini LED display technology. This is the same technology that is used in the refreshed iPad Pro, which Apple has branded as Liquid Retina XDR, and has also been rumored to find its way into the refreshed MacBook Pros.
What’s interesting about this is we have heard that Apple was originally planning on reserving mini LED for its iPad Pro lineup, and that the other iPads would instead get OLED. Assuming this report is true, it would suggest that the iPad mini refresh could be more significant than we thought, and that Apple could be giving the iPad mini a bigger priority.
That being said, it’s just a rumor so don’t take it too seriously just yet, but Apple is expected to launch the new tablet and new MacBook Pros in the coming months, so we’ll just have to remain patient and see what Apple has in store for us.
