Apple announces a 27-inch 5K studio display

Apple just announced a new external display at its "Peek Performance" event. It's designed to be the perfect companion to the company's high-end Mac lineup, including the new M1 Ultra chip-powered Mac Studio desktop. The Studio Display features a 27-inch 5K display wrapped in an aluminum shell. And just like the Pro Display XDR, this monitor comes with a nano texture option for those who work in a bright environment.

The Studio Display has three USB-C ports and a single Thunderbolt 4 port that supports up to 96W passthrough charging.

The Pro Display XDR was introduced in 2019 with a starting price of $5,000. As its price conveys, that monitor is intended for professional photo and video work, with Apple touting the Pro Display XDR’s color accuracy and brightness. Given its high price and niche audience, the Pro Display XDR did little to quell Mac users’ demands for a more reasonably priced, Apple-made external display like the Thunderbolt Display that was discontinued in 2016. Since then, Apple has sold LG displays like the UltraFine 4K and UltraFine 5K to complement its pricey XDR display.

In the months leading up to today's event, Apple was rumored to be developing new external displays. The immediate announcement became more likely this week when Bloomberg's Mark Gurman confirmed that at least one monitor was "ready to go".

Apple hasn't yet said when the new display will be available or how much it will cost, but we'll update this post when we have all the details.
