When Apple first announced the Pro Display XDR monitor, if you felt a mini heart attack after seeing the price, not to mention the price of the stand by itself, we don’t blame you as we felt pretty much the same. However, for those who want a monitor that would fit their Mac setup but don’t want to sell a kidney, there could be some good news on that front.
According to Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, his latest issue of his Power On newsletter has revealed some interesting tidbits about Apple’s next monitor. According to Gurman, Apple is working on a new monitor that could launch at half the price of the Pro Display XDR. The current price of the Pro Display XDR is $5,000 for the cheapest glass option, and $6,000 for the nano-texture model.
If the half-price prediction is accurate, we could be looking at a monitor priced between $2,000 to $3,000. This is by no means cheap. It is still a heck lot more expensive compared to other monitors out there, even those ultrawide displays with 4K resolution, but it is still cheaper than the Pro Display XDR.
We’re not sure what kind of features it will have to justify its price tag, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
