Apple is preparing to improve and potentially expand its line of external displays designed for Mac and iPad users. A new report today claims that the company is working on “multiple new external monitors” with Apple Silicon, including a new version of the Pro Display XDR.

Apple currently sells two external monitors: Studio Display and Pro Display XDR. The former was released earlier this year and starts at $1,599, while the latter was released in 2019 and starts at $4,999 (without stand).

Into its latest publication Turn it on newsletter, Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman reports that Apple has “several new external monitors in development.” Of these, the new version of the Pro Display XDR will be combined with the new one Mac Pro powered by Apple Silicon. Gurman says it’s possible the new Pro Display XDR won’t be released until after the new Mac Pro:

Apple is working on several new external monitors, including an update to the Pro Display XDR that was introduced with the 2019 Intel Mac Pro. However, it is possible that the company’s next high-end display will ship after the Mac Pro. , because the computer is more advanced than the monitor.

9-5Mac previously reported Apple is developing a new external display with a resolution of 7K. The current Pro Display XDR has a 32-inch 6K (6016 x 3384) panel with 218 pixels per inch. A 7K external display from Apple can have a higher pixel density of 245 PPI with a 32-inch screen, or keep the same 218 PPI as the Pro Display XDR, but on a larger 36-inch panel.

Gurman also says that each of these new external displays will have Apple Silicon chips inside, so “the displays rely on less resources than an attached computer.” However, this should not be surprising Studio Display has an A13 Bionic chip along with an interesting 64 GB of memory inside.

We’re still waiting for more details on Apple’s “multiple new external displays.” Nevertheless, it is interesting to imagine what the staff might look like. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
