According to dependable display analyst Ross Young, the next 11-inch iPad Pro will have the same LED Liquid Retina Display as the current generation device rather than the more recent mini-LED display technology featured in the bigger 12.9-inch version.
Young responded to the speculations with a tweet, confirming that the next 11-inch iPad Pro won’t support the more recent mini-LED display technology. As a result, buyers who want a more modern display will have to switch to the bigger 12.9-inch model.
Early reports stated that Apple might extend the mini-LED display it first unveiled in the 12.9-inch iPad Pro in April 2021 to even the smaller 11-inch size for the upcoming iPad Pro version. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro’s Liquid Retina XDR display adds extreme dynamic range, providing a “stunning visual experience” with more true-to-life details and HDR.
The LED Liquid Retina Display on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro still offers many of the same capabilities as the 11-inch model, but it lacks the extreme dynamic range, increased brightness, and deeper blacks. Young stated today that he anticipates both the 12.9-inch and 11-inch iPad Pros will have identical screens to the corresponding current generation devices.
With a new CPU and perhaps improved charging capabilities, the 2017 iPad Pros are anticipated to offer incremental changes. The M2 Apple silicon processor, which offers performance enhancements over the M1 chip in the existing models, will power the upcoming models.
