The rumor: Apple is working on an even higher-end display for pros, according to 9to5Mac (82.4% accurate).

The details…

  • “While it’s unclear whether the new Apple Studio Display is a replacement for the Pro Display XDR or a new option in the lineup with distinct features, people familiar with the matter told 9to5Mac that the new display has a 7K resolution”
  • 9to5Mac speculates that this could mean a larger 36-inch display with a 218PPI density is coming
  • The rumor site previously shared details about this same display last year, including that it will have an A13 chip with neural engine inside

Sam’s take: This is…somehow crazier than the existing Pro Display XDR. A potentially 36-inch screen with 7K resolution? It’s safe to say this is not the consumer monitor that we’ve been hearing about. This is an even higher-end (and potentially more expensive) display for legitimate professionals who have coin to blow.
