On April 14, Apple issued an invitation letter, officially confirming that it will hold a spring conference on April 20, bringing various new products. Before Apple's official announcement, the "inner ghost" Siri had exposed the time of Apple's spring conference. Just ask Siri about the time of Apple's next event, and Siri will answer on April 20.
Generally speaking, Apple earlier planned to hold a spring conference in late March but had to postpone it due to supply chain capacity issues. However, it has been able to reach April.
According to sources, the main reason for Apple's spring conference's postponement is the insufficient supply of mini LED screens. This material used in a small number of high-end TVs. It uses lamp beads to emit light, with high contrast and no stroboscopic. It is known as the most suitable screen for electronic products.
However, the TV screen is big, and it is easy to make backlight partitions. The screen of the new 12.9-inch version of the iPad Pro is too small, and it is the first time the mini LED screen will use for the mobile terminal. It is not easy to control thousands of tiny lamp beads to emit light and achieve the desired effect.
People familiar with the matter said that the mini LED screen used in the iPad Pro will provide by Taiwanese suppliers Ennostar, General Interface Solution and Taiwan Surface Mounting, but the yield rate is now worrying. , So it can only be postponed.
Since 2020, tablet computers sales have risen sharply, and manufacturers such as Huawei and Lenovo have launched many highly competitive products. In April or May of this year, Xiaomi may also release a new tablet. After the system and ecological upgrade, Android tablets are no longer "large phones". Therefore, Apple urgently needs to launch a new iPad Pro to crush the threat from Android tablets.
Of course, apart from the iPad Pro, which launched the mini LED screen on the mobile terminal, Apple's spring conference is still exciting. According to Bloomberg News, Apple may bring new AirPods 3, AirPods Pro 2, iPad mini 6, Apple TV, AirTag, new iMac and other products at this spring conference.
