Apple’s new iPad Pro with M1 chip and mini-LED display is now a week or so old and people are already sharing details showing just how impressive that new screen is.

The beauty of mini-LED, or the Liquid Retina XDR as Apple calls it, is the use of 10,000 LEDs and 2,500 local dimming zones.

That all works together to make sure that dark blacks look as dark and as black as possible while bright whites look exactly that – bright and white. But just how impressive is it in use?

A new report and video by MacRumors compares a 2020 iPad Pro with a new 2021 M1 iPad Pro and the differences between the two are startling. Check the video out and you’ll see what we mean.

That doesn’t mean that it’s all good news, though. We’ve already covered a report on how some users of the new M1 model are seeing issues with blooming. Of course it could be that the blooming effect was less visible on the older display since it produced a lighter shade of black compared to the mini-LED display.

The impact of blooming seems to vary depending on the iPad Pro in question and the content being watched. But what’s clear already is that mini-LED is a huge improvement over LCD and might just put off the switch to OLED for a little while longer.
