Report: The next generation of iPad mini missed the mini-LED screen

DSCC’s Ross Young just stated on Twitter that the upcoming iPad mini 6 will miss the screen with mini-LED backlight technology. It quoted the presumed mini-LED supplier as saying that the earlier related revelations were wrong, that is, Radiant Optoelectronics will provide mini-LED units in the third quarter of this year and expand production capacity in the fourth quarter.

Apple Insider pointed out that Apple has used a new backlight technology called mini-LED on this year’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro model, which helps to greatly improve the color and contrast performance of the black background. However, with the cold water poured by Ross Young, the upcoming iPad mini 6 is likely to miss the mini-LED screen.

An Apple engineer once said that mini-LED means a new level of engineering and they must design the display controller from scratch. In the end, the company chose to test the water on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Considering that the miniaturization of technology often brings a series of developing challenges, Apple is probably not ready to apply mini-LED to the smaller iPad mini.

After all, on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, its thickness is slightly increased compared to the previous generation, and some general-purpose accessories have become a less perfect fit.
