Apple’s new standalone monitor could cost around half the price of Pro Display XDR


Apple’s new standalone consumer monitor is rumored to appear this year and be around $ 2,500, based on comments from Bloombergis Mark Gurman.

Writing in his first “Power On” newsletter of 2022, Gurman says the new monitor is “for about half the price of the Pro Display XDR,” which he “hopes” to launch this year.

Speaking of Macs and iPads, I’m hoping that Apple’s next external monitor, which will cost around half the price of Pro Display XDR, launches in the coming year.

Apple is believed to be developing a cheaper external monitor that would be sold with its top-of-the-line Pro Display XDR, which costs $ 4,999 before factoring in the optional stand of $ 999.

Given that, Gurman’s wording suggests he’s confident the new display will be around the $ 2,500 mark, although he seems less optimistic about its release this year.

Gurman first reported on Apple’s development of a stand-alone display in January 2021 and suggested it would be a consumer-focused successor to Apple’s previous Thunderbolt display, introduced in 2011 for $ 999. and discontinued in 2016.

In the December edition of his newsletter, Gurman used his Q&A section to double down on his belief that Apple is preparing the new display, which he said would be a “go-to seller for those looking to add a more display. big to their new MacBook Pro without spending the equivalent of a luxury car down payment on the Pro Display XDR. “

In related rumors, Twitter-based leaker @dylandkt claimed last month that LG was developing three new stand-alone displays that could end up being for Apple, including one based on the current 24-inch iMac, one based on the upcoming ‌iMac‌ 27 inches, and a 32-inch model that can be a new Pro Display XDR with an Apple silicon chip.

In Gurman’s latest newsletter, the well-connected reporter also covered his other expectations for new Apple products to come in the coming year, which we’ve summarized separately.
