The 2021 12.9-inch iPad Pro features a new 'Liquid Retina XDR display' with a 1,000,000: 1 contrast ratio. The 11-inch model has the same liquid crystal display as before, but the 12.9-inch model uses a mini LED display, which makes the display brighter and has a higher contrast ratio than before. It has been praised as 'display' and 'great display for watching movies'.

Scott Broderick, Apple's global iPad marketing manager, and Vincent Gu, the display engineering team, talked about why the 11-inch model isn't using such a mini LED display.

'What we know about 11-inch iPad users is that they like the super-powerful performance iPad, which weighs a pound and is easy to carry around,' Broderick said. And users of the 12.9-inch iPad are looking for a large display for creative work, so it makes sense to bring a Liquid Retina XDR display to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. I will. '

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is 0.5mm thicker and heavier than its predecessor due to its Liquid Retina XDR display. The 11-inch iPad Pro is 'convenient to carry' for users, so Apple has forgotten to use the Liquid Retina XDR display.

However, there are reports that there are production problems with the mini LED display, so it is possible that the supply was not in time.
