Another report suggests bigger iPad Air/Mini and new iMac coming later this year

The 2019 Apple iPad Mini and iPad Air.

New iPads and iMac are expected to be released in the second half of the year according to DigiTimes. 

Industry sources told the publication that backlit unit (BLU) supplier Radiant Opto-Electronics is ready to ship BLUs for Apple's new iPad models and iMac which are going to be launched in the second half of the year.

The new tablets will include a 10.8-inch iPad Air and an 8.x-inch iPad mini. Volume production of the new iPad Air is slated to begin in Q3. LG Display, BOE and Sharp will be supplying the display panels for the iPad Air. The new iMac is said to be a 23-inch model. This corroborates recent reports by tipster Sonny Dickson of a new iMac with "iPad Pro design language" and an unknown iMac model listed in the Eurasian database.

The new iPad models have been reported several times in the past few months. Japanese site Macotakara reported last week that the new iPad Air may come with USB-C port and that the new iPad mini will have an 8.5-inch display. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed last month that a new 10.8-inch iPad will be launched later this year with the new iPad mini slated for the first half of 2021. The China Times report also wrote about the upcoming launch of a new 11-inch iPad model and 23-inch iMac. Another tipster said the new iPad Air model will come with a Mini-LED display with no notch or Face ID.
