Apple plans to launch a trio of fresh goods with Mini-LED backlights over the next two years, including a 31.6″ screen in the next or third quarter of 2019, a 10-12″ iPad in overdue 2020 or early 2021, and a 15-17″ MacBook in the first half of 2021, based on well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

In a previous study note, Kuo predicted that Apple would launch both a 31.6-inch screen and a 16-16.5″ MacBook Pro in 2019, so it’s not entirely clear if the 15-17″ MacBook refers to a separate laptop or if Kuo currently considers the 16-16.5″ MacBook Pro is coming a couple of years later than he initially anticipated.

Kuo believes that the 31.6-inch display”will target an extremely high-end position” and feature an”all-new design.”

An excerpt from Kuo’s research note, obtained by MacRumors:

We believe that mini LED, compared to OLED, will be much more suitable solution to provide wide-color gamut (WCG)/high-contrast/high dynamic range (HDR)/local dimming features for its longer lifetime and no burn-in problems for Apple’s medium- and large-size products targeting in productivity positions.
