Many had thought that it was a bit of a waste that Apple had stopped making its Thunderbolt 3 displays. This is because these displays were great in terms of their color, but also in its design where it seems to fit Apple’s aesthetics perfectly. The good news is that it looks like Apple could be back in the display business.

At WWDC 2019, the company took the wraps off the Pro Display XDR, the company’s latest display. This doesn’t really come as a complete shocker because prior to this, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had already predicted that Apple could have a new display in the works, and sure enough that prediction has come through.

The Pro Display XDR has a 32-inch screen and features a whopping 6K resolution. We imagine that not many people will need such a high-resolution display, but as its name implies, this is designated for the “pros”.

According to Apple, “Pro Display XDR uses a direct backlighting system with a large array of LEDs that produce 1,000 nits of full-screen brightness and 1,600 nits of peak brightness, far surpassing that of a typical display. With an advanced thermal system that uses its aluminum lattice pattern as a heat sink, Pro Display XDR can sustain 1,000 nits of full-screen brightness indefinitely, something that has never been possible before on a display at this price point.”

Unfortunately, a “pro” display comes with a “pro” price as the Pro Display XDR is priced at a staggering $4,999. There will be a separate Pro Stand sold for $999 which allows users more customization when it comes to height and tilt adjustment. The Pro Display XDR is currently set for a release in the fall of 2019.
