Renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes Apple is preparing to adopt mini LED technology in several upcoming products including a 31.6-inch (6K resolution) display, a new iPad and a new MacBook.

Kuo (per 9to5Mac) said the new display could arrive in the second or third quarter of this year and utilize a mini LED backlight. Some publications incorrectly referenced this product as a new iMac model but that appears to be a translation-based error.

The mini LED iPad is expected to have a screen size between 10 to 12 inches. Unlike the external display, it’ll use a full mini LED screen that requires much smaller LEDs. According to Kuo, an iPad of this nature could need 15 to 25 times the number of LEDs versus what will be used in the 31.6-inch display.

The rumored mini LED MacBook will likely materialize as a MacBook Pro, the publication said, due to its premium nature.

The iPad and MacBook may not arrive until late 2020 or early 2021.

Most expect Apple to unveil the new 31.6-inch display at WWDC 2019 in June alongside a new modular Mac Pro.

I'm not sure who Kuo is or why we should care, but - Shout out to Corsair for working with devs to come up with Mini LED tech!!

In the future- Apple will claim they came up with the technology as part of the marketing campaign for this monitor.
If youre actually being serious, I suggest reading a bit more (well, alot more) before making such hilarious assumptions.

These are two entirely different techs being discussed.

...due to their rich wide color gamut, high dynamic range, high contrast ratios and localized dimming capabilities...
You left off the "obvious"....AND MUCH HIGHER PRICE TO CONSUMERS, because it has an APPLE logo.

Early adopters absorb more of the R&D costs and prices come down later. Remember the 23" and 30" Apple Cinema Displays? Let the people already with too much money pay for those things to drop prices later for the rest of us plebes.
