Outlook for Apple’s spring new product launch: new iPad Pro/mini, and surprise products

According to reports, Apple is preparing a number of its own new products, many of which will be launched at the early spring conference, and are also actively solving the shortage of iPhone 12 Pro series.

According to the latest information, Apple will release a new iPad Pro with a mini-LED display in the first quarter of 2021.

It is expected that mini-LED backlight will appear on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro first, followed by the 11-inch iPad Pro.

In terms of design, the iPad Pro series in 2021 is expected to be almost the same as the iPad Pro series in 2020. Therefore, the biggest change may be a change in display material, plus a new chip based on A14 to provide better performance.

In addition, Apple is also developing a new iPad mini, which will be released in March. It is said that the new iPad mini has an 8.4-inch display and a smaller frame.

Unfortunately, it will not adopt a design similar to the iPad Air 4 and iPad Pro, the bezel and home button will be preserved (this may also be a good thing).

The last time Apple updated the iPad mini was in 2019, and it is time to update. There are also rumors that Apple will develop a new low-cost iPad, but we don’t expect it to be released later this year.

In addition to the two new products mentioned above, there is news that Apple may release the iPhone SE3, AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro 2, and the long-rumored AirTag and Apple TV will also be released together.

It should also be noted that Apple previously announced that it will take about two years to transition the entire Mac product line to a self-developed ARM architecture chip.

2021 will be a year of massive product expansion. New 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, redesigned iMac, etc. may appear, but it should not be in the spring, at least, not in the first half of the year.

In addition to the M1 processor, it is said that the M1 upgraded version and M2 are all under development, and Apple has also prepared a 5nm self-developed GPU.
