A new leak revealed that the iPad Pro tablets will be the first to test 5G antennas developed by Apple itself.
During the past period, it has been repeatedly talked about that the upcoming iPad Pro computers will abandon the old LCD screens to use the new mini-LED technology, which uses a type of backlight that will allow Apple to increase the brightness or darkness of specific areas of the screen, instead of increasing the brightness or dimming of the entire screen. . Through this technology, the company aims to improve the visual experience, especially by increasing the contrast tool for iPad Pro computers.
And DigiTimes published that Apple is currently working on developing a unit for 5G networks that supports mmWave technology, and the unit will be used in advanced specification iPad tablets for 2021.
It was previously rumored that Apple intends to include the new mmWave 5G module in iPhones for next year, but this application may mean that the company wants to test it first.
The (Antenna-in-Beam) AiP unit from Apple will be used for iPad Pro computers with support for a higher spectrum than the 5G networks with a frequency of 6 GHz, which is also known as mmWave 5G. It is roughly the same type of spectrum that is supported by iPhone 12 models that were launched exclusively for the United States. But the difference is that the 2021 iPad Pro computers will use a component that Apple made itself.
It is noteworthy that a report from TheElec website published a few days ago stated that Apple is preparing to adopt OLED screens from Samsung and LG for iPad Pro tablets – which are supposed to be launched next year – instead of LCD screens.
The report stated that Samsung and LG – which currently provide OLED screens for iPhones – are working on developing a new OLED screen for new tablets that the company may launch in the second half of 2021.
