What to expect from Apple’s upcoming iPad upgrades


Last March, Apple updated the iPad Pro line with a new processor, better camera, improved mics, and trackpad support. A few rumors suggest that this year the company will host an event on March 23 to announce new devices, including next-gen iPad Pros.

However, we haven’t heard from Apple, and a new report from Bloomberg suggests we’ll see the new iPads in April.

If you expect any visual changes in the iPad Pro line, you might be disappointed. The sizes – 12.9 inches and 11 inches – will remain the same, and there won’t be any major design changes from the previous generation.

One of the biggest updates Apple is introducing is a mini LED display that will supposedly improve contrast ratios and brightness. In a recent investor note, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said mini-LED technology is coming at least to the 12.9-inch model.

Display technology is already picking up, and the world’s biggest TV makers have already released models at CES in January. You can read more about these TVs and mini LED technology here.
