Ming-Chi Kuo: Apple's Mini LED products likely delayed until 2021
What you need to know
- Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple's Mini LED devices may be delayed until next year.
- He says that Apple's manufacturers will begin mass production in Q3 of 2020.
- The final assembly will take place in Q4, leaving very little room for the launch of any Mini LED devices this year.
A report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that Apple's new Mini LED-based products may not debut until next year.
As reported by AppleInsider:
The report notes that Ming-Chi Kuo has previously predicted the release of a new iPad Pro, iPad, iPad Mini, iMac Pro, and new MacBook Pros this year, all sporting Mini LED displays. Given that this latest timeline pushes the final assembly of Mini LED devices back into Q4, it now seems very unlikely that Apple will be able to announce these devices this year. Kuo reportedly stated:
Kuo expects Mini LED device shipments to grow by 300% in 2021, and 225% in 2022.
