- A new report from DigiTimes says the new iPad mini could get a mini-LED display.
- The tech is currently on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and expected on the new MacBook Pro models.
Even the upcoming iPad mini might get a mini-LED display.
As reported by DigiTimes, industry sources say that backlight unit supplier Radiant Optoelectronics will not only be making its technology for the upcoming 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models but the unannounced iPad mini as well.
The iPad mini has gone without a redesign or a notable update for years now so it has been begging for a major refresh. Many honestly wondered if Apple was going to just drop it from its iPad lineup completely.
Thankfully, it sounds like iPad mini fans are going to get some love. The new iPad mini is expected to not only feature that mini-LED display but the unannounced A15 processor, a USB-C port, and the Smart Connector, setting the new iPad up for a whole new set of accessories.
It's currently unclear exactly when the new iPad mini will be announced, but some rumors claim it could be as early as this fall.
