Apple launched a new iPad Pro update in March, focusing primarily on the upgraded camera system and the new Magic Keyboard. That is also compatible with the 2018 iPad Pro. The new iPad Pro 2020 Camera includes: LiDAR Scanner new with a 12MP Wide camera as well as an Ultra Wide 10MP camera.
Inside, the iPad Pro 2020 has a built-in A12Z Bionic processor and 6GB of RAM. Overall, the iPad Pro update in March of this year was no less upgraded than the 2018 iPad Pro.
One of the biggest changes coming to the next generation iPad Pro is the mini LED screen technology. Mini LED promises to bring more visual enhancements, including improved display quality and longer battery life.
Instead of a large backlight distributing the entire screen, a small LED screen made up of many smaller dimmer areas can be turned on and off individually. This allows areas with black content to actually be black because screen elements will turn off completely in that area.
Reports say Apple is interested in adopting mini LED display technology because they offer a wide color gamut. The Mini LED is also said to have higher energy efficiency.
Meanwhile, OLED displays have problems with burn-in, color shifting and high production costs. Mini LED will solve these problems while still providing the same level of contrast.
For iPads, this is especially noticeable. While the iPhone switched to OLED from the iPhone X, the iPad Pro still uses an LED-backlit display. If the rumors are true, the iPad Pro will be Apple’s first device to switch to a mini LED display. Which will then bring the iPad along with the Mac lineup.
