Apple previously sold Apple Cinema Displays under Steve Jobs, and the Apple Thunderbolt Display under Tim Cook. Since then, we only saw the $5,000 Pro Display XDR, but it looks like that is about to change. There have been recent leaks and rumors of new Apple Branded displays coming in 2022.
Leaker Dylan DKT says LG is working on three new Apple Displays. The sizes are said to be 24″, 27″, and 32″.
The 32″ display is also said to feature custom Apple Silicon. The 24″ and 27″ are likely new consumer-level displays.
The 32″ with custom silicon could very well be the second-generation Pro Display XDR that could launch alongside the redesigned Mac Pro in 2022.
Also mentioned in the report, Dylan says the 27″ and 32″ will both be mini-LED and feature ProMotion. This makes sense as the current Pro Display XDR is mini-LED, and the new iMac 27″ will gain a new design and feature mini-LED, according to display analyst Ross Young.
The only Apple-branded Display that is on sale right now is the Pro Display XDR which is not accessible to many users with the starting price of $5,000. Consumers have wanted new Apple-branded displays similar to the Apple Thunderbolt display; Apple most recently sold the LG UltraFine Display, which was exclusively sold at Apple Stores and on Apple’s website. Those have been discontinued earlier in 2021 to most likely prepare for the launch of these new displays.
If we talk about design, it would make sense that all will have no chin, unlike the redesigned iMacs. The 24″ will likely be a 5K display without the ProMotion and mini-LED, but the displays will still be very sharp.
The 24″ will be the cheapest out of all the models, and Apple could possibly implement fresh color options just like they did with the iMac since many “non-pro” consumers would buy this display compared to the others.
How Much Will Apple’s Displays Cost?
The 27″ and 32″ will likely look like the current Pro Display XDR and will be the higher-priced displays. I would say the 27″ will cost ~$2,000, and the 32″ likely to be the successor to the Pro Display XDR at roughly $5,000.
