Analyst Ross Young claims that Apple will not launch a mini LED version of the 11-inch iPad Pro in 2022, because sales of the 12.9-inch model are doing "really well."

Alongside maintaining that Apple is producing a "Studio Display Pro" with mini LED, analyst Ross Young says the firm has chosen to delay using the technology in the smaller iPad Pro.

Previously, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had claimed that mini LED would be in a 2022 refresh of the 11-inch iPad Pro.

Display Supply Chain Consultants analyst Ross Young's belief is that the mini LED is a significant success with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Postponing using it in the 11-inch model would keep that element of the differentiation between the products.

However, Ming-Chi Kuo has now suggested that it's possible Apple will postpone all new mini LED devices until at least 2023, because of cost issues.

That would include both the 11-inch iPad Pro, and the rumored "Studio Display Pro."
