Apple has yet to release the iPad Pro M1 2021 to the public, with the Cupertino giant pushing the delivery dates further into July, as it faces the challenges of mini LED productions in the company. The latest professional tablet of Apple has most of the company's advanced features including that of the M1 Silicon and the mini LED.
No other device in Apple's list of devices has a mini LED, and it is only installed on the iPad Pro, both for the 2020 and 2021 variants of the device. This indicates that Apple's focus for mini LED production would be for the iPad Pro only, and it would not have any hard time to produce the technology, but that is wrong as the Cupertino giant is at a standstill.
The Spring Loaded event last April has debuted the latest devices on Apple's arsenal and it debuts the addition of new devices to use the M1 chip, which is the iPad Pro and iMac 2021. The bold take of Apple is mostly with the iMac's colors, especially as it moved away from the silver-only finish, in favor of the colorful and iPhone-like choices of the desktop.
Apple iPad Pro M1 2021 Delivery Date
Not much has changed for the tradition of Apple to release new devices and it still sees a later or pushed back delivery date due to production issues brought by the introduction of new technology. However, in the case of the iPad Pro, it has been using the mini LED since the 2020 release, but Apple did not seem to have learned its lesson.
According to Bloomberg, instead of a mid to late June release of the iPad Pro 2021, it would be pushed to early to mid, or even late July. This is because of the mini LED production issues that Apple is currently facing, giving them the nuisance to complete the orders and deliver the professional tablet on the initial promise it made.
The 12.9-inch variant of the iPad Pro M1 2021 is the one to blame in particular, especially as it is the one with the mini LED screen, also the top-of-the-line or high-end spec of the device.
On the other hand, the 11-inch version of the new iPad Pro will see a late May to early June delivery date, which is right on schedule due to its screen using the standard ones used for iPads.
What is Mini LED and Why is it Hard to Produce?
According to Android Authority, Mini LED is composed of thousands of tiny LED modules to light up the screen and create a display, resembling that of a traditional LCD backlit while using light-emitting diodes (LED). It is on par with OLED in terms of display and quality, as it gives a deep contrast and blacks in a picture, overall complementing the image.
It is hard to produce because of the thousands of tiny LEDs needed to be programmed and make a single display as commanded or requested by the user. Moreover, its production is complicated compared to OLEDs and Apple's Retina Display which it uses before for iPad technology.
