Apple works on a new external display but isn’t our dreams affordable

Besides the ridiculously costly Pro Display XDR, Apple doesn’t really like external displays these days. But the new report shows that a new monitor with an A13 chip and a neural engine is about to change.

Anonymous sources have said that 9to5Mac, reportedly internally known for the J327 code name, will not be the inexpensive solution for the XDR Pro Display that many of us hope will. Instead, the Pro Display XDR is replaced by the 9to5Mac. Womp, womp. Womp, womp.

Apple was rumored in 2016 that after its Thunderbolt display had been shut down, he was working on a similar monitor with an integrated GPU. While there is no mention in the 9to5Mac report of an integrated GPU, it is clear that it’s kicking for some time now. In addition, Apple can also see how the display can interact with other appliances by adding a built-in soC to an outside monitor and a neural engine.

This is a good way of dealing with other rumors and launching new products. Apple renovated its iMac line-up in nearly a decade earlier this year. The company is also allegedly working on another iMac, which the leakers describe as a “truly great screen” based on the design of Pro Display XDR. If the pandemic causes remote work to rise, it would be a very good thing to add another external display to your lineup. Moreover, in Apple’s product lineup, this is a remarkable omission.

Of course, the iMac, but also the pitfalls of an all-in-one desktop are on those computers. You also have Mac mini, although you will be required to rely on third-party monitors unless you get several thousand dollars to the Pro Display XDR. It looks like a missed opportunity for a company that loves products “just working” and building its ecosystem.

It is a bit disappointing, for those reasons, to hear that the new display is probably another high-end display that only dead men are not allowed to afford. That being said, Apple is well known to tinker with concepts internally, some of which never reach consumers. If a new screen finally appears, it could be significantly different from what is described by 9to5Mac. In any event, Apple seems to at least play on the idea, and, if so, can we suggest that this one is not priced at $5,000?
