New Revamped Pro Display XDR Will Be Released Soon

According to a report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is developing “several new” external monitors equipped with the firm’s proprietary technology. An improved version of the Pro Display XDR, which was last introduced in 2019, is anticipated to be part of this portfolio.

Apple’s own chips, according to Gurman, should allow the screens to “rely less on resources from the associated computer.” The Studio Display, which Apple introduced back in March, now supports capabilities like Center Stage, spatial audio, and “Hey Siri” voice commands thanks to a similar integration of the A13 Bionic CPU from the iPhone 11.

Apple Will Release New Revamped Pro Display XDR 

It’s still unclear what additional kind of monitors Apple has in mind outside the rumored Pro Display XDR. According to supply chain analyst Ross Young, Apple could introduce a 27-inch mini-LED display with ProMotion in the first quarter of 2023, which could be a sign that the 27-inch Studio Display is getting an update.

Apple’s current Pro Display XDR has a 32-inch 6K LCD panel that can reach 1,600 nits of brightness and costs $4,999 (not including the optional $999 Pro stand). However, unlike the previous Pro Display XDR, Gurman claims that this new monitor may not be available until after the launch of the forthcoming Mac Pro. To achieve its objective of upgrading all of its Macs to Apple silicon in the two years following the M1 chip’s release, Apple was meant to have released the Mac Pro by this point.

Gurman claims that feature modifications and a prospective production transfer to Vietnam have slowed down the project’s development. Although a powerful “M2 Extreme” chip with 48 CPU cores and 152 GPU cores was supposed to be a possibility for the Mac Pro, Gurman claims that due to the chip’s complexity, as well as the expense and resources needed to build it, Apple may have decided against the concept.
