In his Power On newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman talked about the new external monitor Apple is developing, which is expected to cost around half the cost of the current Pro Display XDR.
Gurman also says he “hopes” that this new Apple monitor will be released next year. From what has been said, it is not clear if Gurman is betting on his arrival or if he has a certain source.
“Speaking of Macs and iPads, I’m hoping Apple’s next external monitor, which will cost around half the price of Pro Display XDR, launches next year. “
The Bloomberg reporter also discussed the development of this new external monitor last month:
“I firmly believe that Apple will launch a new external monitor for its latest Macs. (…) Currently the cost of building this monitor has gone down, and with some tweaking and maybe a slight drop in brightness, Apple might be able to get a monitor of similar quality (slightly smaller) maybe around half the price of Pro Display XDR. “
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of Apple’s plans to make a “low cost” external monitor. Indeed, last December, a leaker indicated that Apple was developing external monitors of 24 and 27 inches.
The company is also working on a successor to the Pro Display XDR. This new professional screen monitor will have a SoC made in Apple, probably the A13 Bionic chip, the same one used in the iPhone 11 range. Next to the A13 chip, there will be the Neural Engine, which will speed up business activities. machine learning.
