The iPad Pro may be the most powerful non-Mac device Apple makes, but it has been falling apart as of late. The new fourth-gen iPad Air becomes a newer processor and this iPad Pro still has an LCD screen, albeit by a 120Hz refresh rate. But, all that suggests is that Apple will launch a new iPad Pro soon, also if history is any indicator, it will be one of the most powerful tablets from there.
Now, a new report from DigiTimes, citing industry sources, claims that not only will next year’s iPad Pro have the new mini LED display (which is something we’ve seen multiple rumors about anyway), but also will have support for mmWave 5G. That’s something the new iPhone 12 lineup already has thanks to the Qualcomm modems used in those phones.
But, according to this report, next year’s iPad Pros will not use Qualcomm modems. Apple has been working on its in-house Antenna-in-Package (AiP) to the iPhone 2021 lineup, and the report claims that these tips will also bring 5G mmWave support to next year’s iPad Pro units.
As for when we can expect to see these new iPad Pros, various reports, including those from Ming-Chi Kuo and DigiTimes itself, suggest that the Cupertino giant will launch new iPad Pros in the first half of 2021. It goes without saying. You should take this information with a pinch of salt until we get more concrete details, or a few more reports corroborating the availability of 5G mmWave on next year’s iPad Pro units.
