Apple might be focusing on producing larger iPads and laptops in the future. As CNBC reports, research from a renowned industry analyst by the name of Ming-Chi Kuo (TF International Securities) reveals that Apple is employing “mini LED” technology to produce several new items in the future. Kuo has built a reputation for being an accurate forecaster of future Apple designs and has accurately predicted the specifications of multiple Apple products before they were announced. For his research, he looks to manufacturers that are known to supply Apple with the necessary physical components for their creations.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is using its new mini LED technology to create a trio of new products; this range is made up of a 31.6-inch monitor with a brand new design that’s expected to launch in the “second or third quarter” of this year, a new iPad “with a screen size between 10 inches and 12 inches in late 2020 or early 2021,” and a new MacBook laptop with “a screen size between 15 inches and 17 inches in the first half of 2021.” Compared to the OLED displays consumers can find on current smartphone models, Apple’s mini LED displays may have longer lifespans and capable of better “contrast and color.”

We’ll keep you updated as we receive more information — such as official announcements — concerning Apple’s next run of releases. Ming-Chi Kuo is predicting that Apple releases the aforementioned products within the next two years.

Besides these three items, Apple is also reportedly preparing to release two new triple camera OLED models later this year.
