Apple won't release mini LED 11-inch iPad Pro or Studio Display, Kuo says

Apple isn't going to release any additional products in 2022 with a mini LED screen, according to well-connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Kuo reiterated a previous prediction that Apple wouldn't launch new mini LED products due to "cost concerns." In his latest forecast, Kuo clarified that he means there won't be additional products with a new display size in 2022.

Put another way, Apple may release refreshes of its existing mini LED products, such as the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. However, it won't debut new mini LED devices like an 11-inch variant.

Previously, Kuo said that he expected Apple to release an 11-inch iPad Pro with a mini LED display in 2022.

Kuo's updated forecast lines up with other analysts watching Apple's display moves. Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants, who has a good track record of accurate predictions, agrees with the assumption that no new mini LED devices are arriving in 2022.

In a report earlier in March, Young said that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro was "doing really well," and added that Apple wouldn't need to add a mini LED 11-inch model.

However, Young and Kuo part ways on rumors of a 27-inch mini LED-equipped Apple Mac display. Kuo said the mini LED monitor isn't coming, while Young says panel production on the accessory has already begun and he is still expecting a debut in 2022.
