Apple has problems with the production of the 12.9-inch M1 chip iPad Pro, claims a report from Bloomberg. The Production problems are reportedly caused by the mini-LED technology the company is using with the new iPad Pro. According to the report, Apple is finding it difficult to mass-produce the mini LED panels for the device, which is delaying production and therefore shipping. Apple calls the new iPad Pro display a Liquid Retina XDR display, which is said to offer a high dynamic range.
According to the report, Apple’s manufacturing partners’ new displays are taking more time to complete. Compared to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, the 11-inch iPad Pro comes with one LCD Like its predecessor, the panel is expected to be delivered this month and in the first week of June. It is speculated that shipments of the 12.9-inch model will take place later in June and into July.
While the new device may face production delays due to its display, there have been good reports on the speed of the iPad Pro with the M1 chip. According to the first benchmark results from Geekbench 5, the iPad Pro with M1 chip is over 50% faster than the previous generation iPad Pro, according to a report by MacRumors.
The 12.9-inch iPad Pro averaged single-core and multi-core scores of 1,718 and 7,284, respectively, based on five Geekbench 5 tests. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro of the previous generation (4th generation) with the A12Z chip achieved average single-core and multi-core values of 1,121 and 4,656, respectively, which makes the M1 iPad Pro 56% faster . In terms of graphics performance, the fifth generation iPad Pro with the M1 chip averaged 20,578 metals, making it 71% faster than the fourth generation iPad Pro with the A12Z chip.
The report also notes that the third-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the A12X chip got a higher average multi-core score of 4,809, but the M1 iPad Pro still came out 51% faster.
