What you need to know
- Another report says the new iPad Pro (2021) is likely to be delayed.
- Digitimes reports that issues with supply for the mini-LED display will delay the first wave of pre-orders.
- It follows a Bloomberg report to the same effect earlier this week.
A second report says that pre-orders for the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2021) are likely to be delayed because of supply constraints for the mini-LED display.
The news follows a similar report from Bloomberg on Tuesday:
As Bloomberg notes only the larger iPad Pro sports the fancy new mini-LED display, meaning the 11-inch model remains unaffected.
Apple previously noted at its Q1 earnings call that it expects to miss out on $4 billion in revenue due to supply constraints in this quarter.
The 2021 iPad Pro features much-improved performance, faster 5G radios, a creative new front-facing camera, and on the larger 12.9-inch model, a seriously great display. It's still the best tablet ever, but costs more than ever.
