With little to no indication of how Apple plans to use this technology in newer products like their wearable lineup, one must wait and watch to see how MiniLED fares in the real world. Apple's new addition to the iPad family is essentially a pro tablet wrapped up in a slightly cheaper package, and would be flawless for the casual (but frequent) iPad user. The iPad doesn't have any pattern of their iPad pro release like they have consistency in dates with the release of mobile phones.
Apple was granted a couple of patents (spotted first by Patently Apple folks) that have to do with two-way charging this week and its likely that most of us will be familiar with the technology - reverse charging. They could simply use the MacBook as their charger. The patents include drawings that show a MacBook charging an iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, as well as drawings of the iPad and iPhone charging other devices like EarPods. This wireless charging technique from MacBook is even more appropriate. The patent specifically states that "despite having standardized connectors and cable [s], each device may require a separate or dedicated power supply to charge".
According to Mac Otakara, Apple plans on offering a sixth-generation iPad mini this coming March.
This suggests that a future laptop could be able to charge multiple Apple devices at the same time - or one device at multiple points on the MacBook.
You'd assume that the tablet would also get the expected upgrades internally, including a new chip at its heart, so it would be interesting to see how its value proposition might change.
From the graph above, Apple could be planning to have three wireless charging spots.
When an electric current passes from the mains through the coiled wire, it creates an electromagnetic field around the magnet. We suppose this may only be useful for charging your devices when it's not in use. Now the company seems to reportedly be working on a custom 12-core processor that will launch in March.
