Apple has no indication that IT is working on a new version of its Pro Display XDR, according to 9to5 Mac, but there are rumors that apple has a new external Display in the works.Apple has been working on a new "Apple Studio Display" with a higher resolution than the Pro Display XDR, according to people familiar with the matter.
Apple released the Pro Display XDR Display in December 2019 for $4,999 with an optional $999 stand.This 32-inch display has a 6K resolution, a peak brightness of 1600 nits for HDR content, 10bit support, 1.073 billion colors, and a contrast ratio of 1,000:1.
While it's unclear whether the new Apple Studio Display is a replacement for the Pro Display XDR or a new option in the lineup with unique features, people familiar with the matter say the new Display has a 7K resolution.
By comparison, the Pro Display XDR has a 32-inch 6K (6016 x 3384) panel with a pixel density of 218PPI.The higher resolution could mean the new Apple Studio Display will have a higher pixel density of 245PPI, or it will keep the same 218PPI as the Pro Display XDR, but with a larger 36-inch panel size.
In July 2021, it was reported that Apple had been testing a new external display, dubbed the "J327", with a built-in A13 chip.According to the source, the Apple Studio Display is also a model of the J327 -- meaning Apple is still working on an external Display with a dedicated Apple Silicon chip.
Bloomberg's Mark Gulman recently said That Apple plans to introduce multiple new Macs in 2022, as well as a new external Display that will cost half the price of the Pro Display XDR for the average user. In the past, Apple's "Cinema Display" line has been available in a variety of sizes -- so it would be no surprise if Apple again offered customers two or more monitor options.
Plans for the launch of the new Apple Studio Display are unclear, but Apple will hold a special event on March 8 that is rumored to unveil a new Mac device.
