The well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has announced to investors today that Apple is planning six products with mini-LED screens, including a 14.1-inch MacBook Pro, which is to replace the current 13.3-inch model.

Apple already replaced the 15-inch MacBook Pro with a revised 16-inch device last year. This 16-inch MacBook Pro (from 2,299 euros on Amazon) not only convinced us in our detailed test with a decent performance, but above all with its keyboard with a scissor mechanism.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, this new Magic Keyboard will soon be introduced to the smaller MacBook Pro, along with a slightly larger mini-LED display. Such a screen could result in a significantly better contrast, a higher maximum brightness and lower power consumption compared to the current devices.

But the 14-inch MacBook Pro is just one of six devices that Apple is soon to use the new screen technology. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, mini-LED displays are also planned for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, the 27-inch iMac Pro, the 16-inch MacBook Pro, the 10.2-inch iPad and the iPad Mini. Why the 11 inch iPad Pro is not on the list remains unclear.

The iMac Pro is expected to be launched in the fourth quarter, the analyst does not specify a closer period for the release of the remaining products. So it would be quite conceivable that some products will experience a generation with conventional screens. However, Kuo emphasizes that Apple’s schedule for these devices has not yet been affected by the corona virus (COVID-19).
