In a new report from Display Supply Chain Consultants, supply chain analyst Ross Young had a number of predictions about what to expect from Apple over the next few years. Among a number of predictions, the analyst says that we should expect a new 27-inch iMac Pro with a mini-LED display and 120Hz refresh rate in the spring of 2022.
That would result in an iMac Pro with the same display technology that currently exists in the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro. If true, however, some will be disappointed as a 32-inch display was previously rumored.
In addition to the iMac Pro, Young says Apple may launch its augmented reality headset as soon as next year. However, due to a small number of volume orders for the display technology, the new headset is likely to be expensive.
The analyst also says that we should not expect to see a foldable iPhone or an OLED display in the iPad or MacBook until 2023 at the earliest.
Apple's Launch of the 27" iMac Pro with MiniLEDs, 120Hz Variable Refresh and Oxide Backplanes. Expected in the spring as Apple brings its Pro Motion technology to the iMac.
Apple AR Headset Introduction. Lots of rumors about this, but volume estimates look low for next year, so price must be high.
Apple Foldable and OLED iPad and MacBook Timing. Not expected until 2023 at the earliest, 2024 more likely.
Even more is anticipated for next year, including the next generation of the iPhone SE.
