Apple showed up The new iPad Pro, along with other hardware and software announcements, was unveiled at a virtual event on Tuesday. Heir to 2020 iPad Pro adds Apple’s M1 chip, the same as the one inside most the latest MacBook Air—Mini-LED display with technology.
The tablet is 11 or 12.9 inches in size and was announced with a new iMac, AirTags, Apple TV 4K and more You can read it here.
M1 and Mini-LED
Apple’s biggest news in 2020 was a shift from using Intel processors inside his Mac in favor of the company’s own silicon, based on ARM architecture. Now, last year’s MacBook Air, Pro and Mac Mini–M1—Pad Pro is turning on.
What does it mean to you? Apple says it expects 50% faster graphics and up to 40% faster graphics than the previous iPad Pro.
Another big update is the display, specifically for the 12.9-inch model. Now Apple is using what it calls the Liquid Retina XDR, the same name as its $ 5,000 display technology Pro Display XDR. The underlying technology is not the same except. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro’s LCD screen uses Mini-LED backlight technology the TV cuts a few times late.
Mini-LED technology, as the name suggests, uses thousands of small LEDs to generate light for the LCD screen. Instead of illuminating a screen with a single connected panel (or a panel with multiple zones), this much more focused approach improves better contrast ratios, better blacks, and higher brightness (up to 1,000 nit, up to 1,600 peak brightness). Apple says the iPad Pro has more than 10,000 LEDs, compared to last year’s model, which had 72.
This technology allows the iPad Pro’s screen to have 2,596 local dimming areas, allowing the screen to adjust its brightness more precisely where it is needed. Also, you won’t have the backlight bleed, the common problem is when traditional LCD lighting screens emit light from the edges of the screen. Lauren Goode of WIRED noticed this issue last year iPad Air. The Liquid Retina display of the 11-inch iPad Pro does not use Mini-LED technology.
Apple has been using LCD screens for its iPad models since the first model, and that doesn’t change. Mini-LED is just an evolution of existing LCD light technology. You might be wondering why he didn’t choose OLED, the display technology used in the latest iPhones. The answer is not clear. It may be a price or availability issue, but OLEDs will also be more likely to burn the screen if the screen content leaves the screen image if it remains inactive on the panel for a long time. Plus, it can’t be so bright.
