Rumor Claims Apple Will Update MacBook Pro With Brighter Mini-LED Displays This Year

Posted October 5, 2023 at 2:10pm by iClarified
A new rumor from DigiTimes claims that Apple will update its 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with brighter mini-LED displays this year.

Apple is expected to ship new models of 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro devices in the fourth quarter of 2023 with miniLED backlighting that can increase the display brightness by 10% compared to the first-generation specifications, the sources said.

While the report says the new models will ship in Q4, it's possible that's in reference to shipments from suppliers to Apple, rather than shipments from Apple to customers. Most other sources are now predicting that we will not see new M3 Mac updates until 2024.


Notably, DigiTimes claims that Apple will not use the brighter mini-LEDs to increase brightness, but rather to conserve power.

Apple has not made major changes to the miniLED backlighting specifications since adopting it for its tablets and notebooks, the sources said. But the upcoming MacBook Pro devices will feature miniLEDs that are 10% brighter than the previous ones without changing the number of miniLED chips in the backlighting module, the sources said. The brightness enhancement is not meant to improve picture quality, but rather to save power and improve battery life, the sources said, adding that the new devices will start shipping in the fourth quarter of 2023.

If you're waiting for an OLED update for MacBook Pro, Samsung is reportedly investing $3.1 billion into a facility that allegedly will make these panels for models to be released in 2026. More details here.
