>Apple used mini led as well

No they don't. All apple tablets use LCD displays manufactured by Samsung. (Hence the post.)

it even says this in the article, and why Apple is moving away from the LCD.

they use mini led in Macbook pro and on their very expensive external screen I think.

The iPad Pro 12.9 has used mini LED for the last two models.

"MINI LED^^backlite** DISPLAY! "

They use clever marketing to trick you. The LEDs that light up the LCD screen are mini... The LCD screen itself is not a mini LED screen..

The iPad Pro 12.9 uses bullshit words like " liquid retina XDR display" which is just fancy for saying, "Liquid Crystal half-assed Hdr Display. (LCD/LCxD)

Ipads and iphones still stuffer from Burn in like old ass TV's.

This is another reason Apple is changing their screens finally.

I have no clue what you’re talking about. The page you’ve linked correctly states the 12.9 inch iPad Pro uses a mini LED display. Yes, it is backlit, that is a tenet of mini LED technology. All mini LED displays are backlit, that’s how it works.

That's not how OLED or AMOLED screens work... You know? The things that are currently being discussed in this conversation.

Apple has shitty old Mini-LED tech for $1,

Why not get a brand new, top of the line AMOLED tablet with larger screen and more power for only $800?

Retina means it meets certain PPI targets I believe.

PPI is literally the quality of the display.

Apple displays are not True definition and use software upscaling to make it look good on screen.

This is why iPhone photos look great on other iPhones but look kind of shitty when posted online or viewed on a computer. (Comparatively to other cameras)

This is also why images received from Android users look like shit on iPhone screens, and the iPhone users simply think Android phones send bad photos ironically. Lol

It’s pixels per inch. Nothing to do with quality, certain PPI values qualify it as “Retina” for Apple.

My sweet summer child. Play around with the PPI on a computer display, and then come back and tell me it has

PPI is the relationship between resolution and screen size. Nothing to do with quality. This is why a phone or laptop with a 4k screen is ridiculous.

CORRECT! Together they both make "quality".

This circles back to my previous comment about Apple having weird ass displays and having them downscale their images with the iOS software!

This has been common knowledge for a Long time.

Fidelity is what you’re looking for. Not a fan of Apple but their “weird ass displays” is a feature not a bug. It means you get very acceptable PPI without the bullshit advertising around resolution. See 4k phones etc etc.
