Apple is expected to expand the use of mini-LED displays from the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro to the new MacBook Pro models this year. And while the new laptops should arrive on schedule, they may only be available in limited quantities initially.
According to a Digitimes report the supply of mini-LED displays for the upcoming MacBooks will be constrained due to the ongoing outbreaks of COVID-19, affecting Foxconn and Wistron factories in India.
The recent outbreaks are reportedly already affecting the supply of mini-LED panels for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
Still, Apple is expected to go ahead with its planned announcement of the new Apple Silicon-powered MacBook Pro models in limited quantities and achieve full mass production in Q4 of 2021 or even Q1 of 2022.
