According to the Korean website The Elec, Samsung is currently negotiating with Apple about the OLED screen supply for the 16-inch MacBook Pro and future versions of the iPad Pro.
Earlier, Apple analyst Guo Mingxi mentioned that in the 2019 Mac new product, Apple may launch three new products this year, including the 16 ~ 16.5-inch MacBook Pro. The other two are the modular Mac Pro and the 31.6-inch 6K display. Guo Minghao did not mention the screen display technology used by the 16- to 16.-inch MacBook Pro, but later predicted that Apple would launch a 15- to 17-inch MacBook (Pro) using a mini-LED backlight unit screen in the first half of 2021.
On the iPad Pro side, Guo Minghao predicted that Apple will mass-produce two new iPad Pros in the fourth quarter of this year and the first quarter of next year. The processor will be upgraded and the specific screen technology will not be specified. Similarly, Guo also predicted that Apple will launch a 10 to 12-inch iPad (Pro) using mini-LED backlight unit screens in the fourth quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021.There is very little news about the 16-inch MacBook Pro and the new iPad Pro, but Apple unexpectedly updated the MacBook Pro product line this week (improving CPU speed and improving the keyboard). This means that the legendary 16-inch MacBook Pro will not be released until at least the fall. And many media have predicted that Apple will release a new modular Mac Pro and supporting monitors during WWDC. Since they are all professional-grade Mac products, why not release them together? Of course, these are still rumors, and we will wait until the WWDC keynote speech at the beginning of next month.
