Earlier today we covered the weirdly recurrent
LTPO theory, which has popped up again and again throughout the iPhone 13 rumour cycle. Now we turn to the equivalent for the MacBook range: the seemingly inevitable arrival of mini-LED, which we covered twice (for the
Air and the
Pro) back in March.
We’ve now received another piece of evidence to suggest that the mini-LED screen tech is on the way, and this one focuses on the Pro line.
According to a new report from
DigiTimes, quoted by
MacRumors, this year’s MacBook Pro models will indeed feature mini-LED backlit screens, following news that the supplier, TSMT, has successfully overcome production difficulties that previously held back development of a mini-LED MacBook. TSMT is the same company that produces the mini-LED panels in the
latest 12.9in iPad Pro.
Upgrading to mini-LED will bring better colour reproduction, blacker blacks, higher contrast and greater dynamic range.
As usual, rumours like these should be taken with a pinch of salt, but it undeniably makes sense for the benefits of mini-LED, already explored in Apple’s flagship tablet, to be brought across to the MacBook Pro.
Catch up on the latest rumours about the upcoming laptops, which are expected to see the return of MagSafe and the removal of the Touch Bar, among other changes, in our
new MacBook Pro hub. If you’re more interested in the models that are currently available, check out our roundup of the
