Kuo has said a mini-LED version of a 16-inch MacBook Pro is in the works for a possible late 2020 release,... According to Taiwanese research firm TrendForce, Apple suppliers won't begin competing to win manufacturing orders for new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with mini-LED displays until the first quarter of 2021.
There is a precedent for it with the 3rd gen and 4th gen iPad. Both were released in 2012, and the 4th gen was the first to have the Retina Display screen resolution.
it runs ipadOS , not macOS...so 6gb ram is enough for what i said...but again...im talking about the RAW power of the cpu+igpuNowaday the RAM is more important. Sadly iPad Pro has small amount of RAM. Regardless of the CPU it can't compare with the laptops.
Lol a precedent? That was years ago and the 3rd gen iPad was a complete cluster and wasn’t really an upgrade from gen 2.
I just bought the 2020 12.9 pro because my carrier offered me a supercheap deal. Yeah it‘s nicer and smaller than my 2017 pro but it‘s not a real game changer (except for the magic keyboard!) If Apple is releasing a new one in just 4-5 months from now I won‘t be buying it and I‘m sure that with the exception of all the YT influencers out there, most ppl will probably do the same. Mini-LED and 5G won‘t be a game changer either. It‘s a premium product for 1.400 USD and the economy is at an all-time low. Who can afford that every year?I have a 2017 iPad Pro 12.9 and see no reason to upgrade it. Still works like a charm.
not any longer...since the next macs will run on these arm based Apple chipsAll that power and still held back by iPadOS
Gotta love all these leaks/reports, throw anything against the wall and see what sticks.
You know, feels like every time there’s a rumour about (mini) LED display for iPad it’s only the 12.9”. Makes me wonder if the 11” is going away and replaced by the new Air. I hope it’s not the case.
Someone is wrong and I bet Kuo is wrong. You cannot release a mini-LED 16” MBP in late 2020 if mfr.s are not competing on production bids until 2021.
Apple doesn't care. The iPad Pro received a 2020 update solely to get LIDAR into the wild so developers could have apps ready when the iPhone 12 shipped. And for folks on pre-2018 iPad Pros, the 2020 iPad Pro was a legitimate upgrade.
The 2021 iPad Pro will be for folks like myself who have 2018 iPad Pros. Those who bought 2020 models will upgrade in 2022 or 2023.
Think about the similarities though: A12Z was not a significant update vs the A12X and Mini LED would be a significant screen technology change similar to the move to Retina Display.
Nowaday the RAM is more important. Sadly iPad Pro has small amount of RAM. Regardless of the CPU it can't compare with the laptops.
