The long wait for the new Apple Thunderbolt display may or may not end soon

The long wait for the new Apple Thunderbolt display may or may not end soon

Zoom / LG’s 5K UltraFine is currently the closest thing to the 5K version of the old Thunderbolt Display. But Apple could change that sometime this year.


It’s been a long, sad decade for first-party Apple external monitor fans.

It was Apple’s 2011 Thunderbolt monitor Unofficially discontinued again in 2016 without being replaced. Both 4K and 5K LG UltraFine show that Apple will still sell you Not bad — the 5K option is still one of the only 5K displays out there, and the hardware has modern Thunderbolt 3 ports, USB hubs, built-in webcams, and decent display panels. But its thick, unsightly bezels and square black designs hardly match the aesthetic well of Apple’s sleek silver hardware. And then there ProDisplay XDRAn expensive monitor can cost between two And the six times As far as the Mac you’re connected to.

But the multi-screen Mac enthusiast We have not lost hopeAnd rumors persisted that Apple would return to the market for displays that an ordinary person could afford. The latest iteration of this rumor comes from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who is more correct than most. He says (via MacRumors) that Apple plans to introduce a new “more affordable” 27-inch screen and may even plan to release the screen Along with a more powerful version of the Mac mini Sometime in 2022.

The only details Kuo provided was that the display would not use Mini LED technology from the latest iPad or MacBook Pro. So it was not specified whether “2022” meant “at tomorrow’s event” or “in December”.

I hesitate to use the word ‘cheaper’ or ‘cheaper’ or ‘affordable’ to describe whatever this screen is, because the thing is ‘cheaper’ than the $5000 ProDisplay XDR and up. This is a very expensive canopy that another monitor can have under it. But if the monitor is priced somewhere near the current 5K LG UltraFine and uses a higher 4K resolution, it could be a compelling alternative with a higher density to the 27- and 32-inch 4K screens offered by most monitor makers. These screens don’t look bad when connected to a Mac, but their pixel density doesn’t match up well with what Apple uses for its iMac and MacBook displays — you need to use macOS scaling settings to make things look just right, but this can reduce the sharpness And it’s the details that make high-resolution, high-density screens so attractive in the first place.
