A recent report from Ming-Chi Kuo said that the company will be accelerating the adoption of mini-LED panels because the current testings yield better results than expected, mostly thanks to a new supplier called Sanan Optoelectronics. As a result we could see the first 12.9-inch iPad Pro with mini-LED display sooner than expected.

Epistar, will remain the main mini-LED panel supplier for Apple but the company needed more suppliers to meet the initial demand. Currently, mini-LED panel manufacturers are moving from the “technology development” stage to the “economies of scale” stage. Kuo thinks that in 2021, the cost for a mini-LED manufacturing will fall around 50%, followed by around 35% further drop in 2022.

The mass production of the said panels will begin in Q4 this year and the initial order is for 300,000 to 400,000 units.
