Should you wait for the Next iPad Pro?

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

I'm sorry guys i realized what i did in hindsight and i've confused a lot of you okay genuinely deep down from inside me i apologize because when the ipad air 4 came out it was a bit more expensive than i thought it was going to be and given it didn't have face id and you were going with touch id and all that stuff i was kind of like well 600 bucks and you only get 64 gigs and if you want to get more than that you have to spend an extra 150 to get 256 which in my opinion puts you well in the price range of the 2020 11 ipad pro which is a way better product

Overall or you could just go with a certified refurbished 2018 ipad pro and probably save yourself some money and get a better product but once i did that a lot of people are now thinking well maybe i should just opt for the ipad pro but aren't there new ipad pros coming soon and yeah i mean we should at least talk about when the next ipad pros were going to come out because quo has talked about it recently so let's talk about apple's first mini led product let's begin yeah the apologies don't stop today either because i used to think that the

Pro display xdr was mini led and it kind of is but not technically it's more so just a super really advanced lcd display and a lot of what mini led screens are are kind of based on the tech that they put into the pro display xdr and i guess this one is a little bit different the supply chain and the technology because obviously they're not using the exact same tech that goes into the pro display which is like you know giant and thick and somehow miniaturizing that into an ipad pro but

Quo is saying that the supply chains that are working on bringing mini led displays to apple are seeing better than expected results and that they want mass production for the first mini led product to begin in q4 of this year but it's important to remember that quote quotes quote here if you wanted to start a website that would be a great way to title it quo is saying that mass production of these displays will be in q4 of 2020 that doesn't necessarily mean that the first ipad pro is

Coming in the fourth quarter it could i mean they could pull a miracle and decide to rapidly unveil the new ipad pro and ship it right after mass production had began but this is new tech this is a display technology that hasn't been implemented in this way into apple products before and in case you didn't know what mini led is it's kind of like taking a lot of the benefits of an oled display and bringing it to a more lcd design so the ipad pro probably couldn't just straight up get

An oled display because samsung wants those for themselves or because apple's very picky about contrast ratio and color accuracy and getting 120 hertz has taken a long long time for oled display samsung is just now getting it there and apple i think wants to diversify the supply chains a little bit because samsung supplies so much of the world's oled displays that apple's working on this mini led tech which should mean that there's no burn-in issues but you still get your 120 hertz

You still get your great contrast ratio your great color accuracy and essentially it means like as if the ipad were to have an oled display though technically it's not actually oled it'll just feel like it is so that means better colors better brightness and better overall looking display for the next gen ipad pro but important to remember other than mini led and 5g and the a14x chip which hasn't been unveiled yet but we did get our sneak peek at the a14 chip with the ipad air 4. you can imagine the

Performance gains on that 5 nanometer design are probably going to be pretty amazing other than that though there's not been too much rumored for this next generation ipad pro i mean those updates in themselves might seem like a big one personally i just don't give a crap about 5g so i could care less about that and a 12 z chip has been plenty fast for me i haven't been in any circumstances where i was like dang it my ipad pro is just too dang slow

So going even faster than the a12z is you know inevitable it's like okay cool yeah i expected that but i'm not expecting the bezels really to shrink on the next generation ipad pro i mean that would be cool but i think most people agree like you need a little bit of bezel there for your thumbs to rest on and to prevent the display from registering your fingers when you don't mean them to so my hope because we've all spent 300 or 400 on keyboard cases is that this next generation ipad pro will still

Fit in the same form factor as our current ipad pros that way we don't have to buy all new accessories all over again now you gotta buy apple pencil three now then you gotta get magic keyboard second generation because we just moved the smart connector over slightly i would hate that and it sounds like something apple could do so please don't do that i wanna keep using my keyboard case apple if new ipads come out don't make me drop another 400 bucks on keyboards but essentially the reason i'm telling you

All this is because we don't have an exact timeline on when the ipad pro is shipping in my opinion doesn't really sound like apple to release two ipad pros within a single year so quo did kind of the same thing in 2019 he said that the triple camera you know the ipad pro with lidar that would come out in october obviously it didn't come out until march so if we're hearing that mass production of these mini led displays won't start until q4 of this year i would say best case scenario you

Shouldn't expect an ipad pro refresh until march or june of 2021. so if you're in desperate need of a new ipad and you're not willing to wait that long honestly i don't think you're actually gonna miss out by just going with today's current ipad pro the one that came out back in march because mini led sounds exciting and on paper it sounds like it's a big deal to be getting better colors and better contrast ratio but i'll be honest it's never been a complaint of mine when using the ipad

Pro i've never been like the colors are just so bad in fact if i had to choose between using my ipad pro for something and my iphone that involves just watching a movie or looking at the screen for long periods of time i would still go with the ipad pro just because i'm such a sucker for 120 hertz and i can watch shows and i browse the web on the ipad pro and the colors and the contrast ratio looks great i mean sure if the black pixels were just a little bit more black

And it rivaled the kind of oled quality of my iphone it would be nice but i'm not sure if it's kind of weight six to nine months kind of nice you know like there's also a decent chance with these mini led displays being adopted that the pricing might not be as great as it is now i'm only assuming that because the pro display xdr was super expensive and typically whenever apple adds oled to something it gets more expensive maybe with the exception of the iphone 12 but for the most part i think that if you're willing to wait if your current

Ipad or your current mac or whatever you're using can hold you out a little bit longer we're kind of in between refreshes right now you know we're not right next to one but at the same time we're also kind of far away from the last ipad pro refresh and typically apple doesn't refresh the ipad pros annually it's around 18 months not 12. so even if one came out in march it would be much much sooner in earlier than most would expect and knowing how things that apple typically

Get pushed back further than what most leakers think the schedules are i wouldn't be shocked if we don't see another ipad pro until quadruple udc for next year so just keep that in mind it is a possibility and none of the leakers are very convinced on when exactly it's coming whether it's end of this year or march or june they're not being super clear or concrete and their leaks like to change a lot so point being if mini led sounds like something you really really want to see

And you really want on your next ipad go ahead and wait and see if these rumors or leakers change their direction of any kind but if that doesn't sound like a big deal to you like you've used an ipad pro and you didn't think that the colors were bad or the contrast ratio was bad enough to be distracting then i'd say still yeah buy a 2020 ipad pro it's not that bad you can find discounts on them elsewhere because they've been available for a while now and i still think a12z chip is plenty fast and the value

You get out of a 800 ipad pro today you know six gigs of ram 128 gigs of storage face id promotion quad speakers it's a solid product and i don't think you're gonna regret buying it now if it turns out next march or june there's a new ipad that's more expensive but has slightly better colors hopefully that answers some of your questions but if there's something i'm missing please feel free to let me know this is your apple shape here and i'll see you all in the next one
