The display is understood to be a 5K 27-inch model based on mini-LED. It will support Apple’s ProMotion tech, which dynamically adjusts the refresh rate depending on the content displayed, and can rise as high as 120Hz.
An absolute powerhouse in terms of performance. Price-wise, expect something more expensive, but in line with the Apple Studio Display, which currently starts at $1,599.
The new display won’t replace the larger and more expensive 6K Pro Display XDR - but for users who are interested in higher refresh rates while maintaining a beautiful aspect ratio: this will be a great option.
Apple will launch a new external display in the first three months of 2023, according to an analyst with a proven track record of accurate prediction. Ross Young, of Display Supply Chain Consultants, tweeted to super followers on Thursday (via MacRumors) that Apple had again “pushed” the launch of the product. The launch will now take place in Q1 2023, Young said.
There are various definitions of Q1 (Apple’s lastfiscalQ1 ran from September 26 to January 1), but MacRumors takes this to mean the first calendar quarter of 2023, which means sometime in January, February, or March. Apple tends not to launch much in the first two months of the year, so a March unveiling seems the most likely outcome–unless it’s pushed back yet again.
