San Francisco. Apple plans to launch two new variants of iPad soon. According to the report, Apple will launch a 10.8-inch iPad and an 8.5-inch iPad mini in 2021 later this year.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported that the 10.8-inch model would replace the current 10.2-inch model or the 10.5-inch iPad Air. At the same time, MacRumors stated in its report that the 8.5-inch iPad mini will be the new model of the series.
Will get 20W power adapter
Kuo said that Apple will sell both these variants with a 20W power adapter, as has been revealed in some leaked reports. However, this cannot happen with the iPhone 12 as the company will not ship the iPhone 12 with the charger.
Apple working on mini-LED display technology
The analyst also said that the iPhone manufacturer's plan to adopt mini-LED display technology for future hardware products has been withdrawn by 2021 due to the global health crisis. The analyst also estimated that Apple Mini-LED product shipments would increase by approximately 300 percent and 225 percent, respectively, in 2021 and 2022. In March, Apple released a new iPad Pro with LIDAR sensor technology.
