Apple is planning to release a mini-LED iPad Pro in the first quarter of 2021 and new mini-LED MacBook Pro devices in the second quarter of 2021, according to a new report from DigiTimes. The timeline is slightly earlier than predicted by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Apple's suppliers in Taiwan, including LED chip vendor Epistar, testing and sorting specialist FitTech, SMT service provider Taiwan Surface Mounting Technology, backlight board supplier Zhen Ding Technology, cooling solution provider Auras Technology and process equipment maker All Ring Technology, are all ready to gain growth momentum from upcoming shipments for Apple's miniLED-backlit devices, the sources said.

The sources continued that Foxconn Technology and Compal Electronics will share the assembly orders for miniLED ‌iPad Pro‌ devices, and MacBook Pro products adopting M1 chipsets will be mainly produced by Quanta Computer and partly by Foxconn.

Unsurprisingly, TSMC is said to have landed 5nm chip orders for Apple's new iPads and MacBooks. The company already manufacturers the M1 chip found in Apple's new MacBook Air, Macbook Pro, and Mac mini.

Apple's new M1 Macs can be ordered here:
13-inch MacBook Air with M1 Chip - $999
13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Chip - $1249 ($50 off)
Mac mini with M1 Chip - $699
