News about the first iPad release of 2021 was announced over the weekend. This first Apple tablet of the year is a 12.9-inch iPad Pro. This could be the first iPad Pro with a mini-LED display, which is a very early highlight in Apple’s offerings from the year.
Information about the first iPad of the year comes from a Digitimes report Apple was also ready to roll out flexible OLED panels for the next iPhone. The next iPhone is unlikely to get pliable – the flexibility allows for the possibility that the next iPhone will have a tiny curve around the edges – or that the next iPhone will use a more flexible display to allow for a heartier overall device.

The next iPad offers many of the same features as the otherwise newest iPad Pro. It aims to replace your current laptop – or at least to invade your life through a particularly diverse set of capabilities. This next-gen iPad Pro may be the first of the year with the next A-Series chip to be seen year-round on Apple mobile devices.
The 12.9-inch iPad Pro (early 2021) will likely have a display that surpasses that of the rest of the iPad family, and likely the latest additions to the iPhone as well. The iPad Pro is a premier device to bring a new, more impressive range of displays to market.
Think back to the first time Apple released a device with a display that refreshed 120 Hz – it was an iPad. Think of the first device Apple released with a display that could use the Apple Pencil – it was an iPad. Now is the time for that mini LED goodness.
