Apple plans to introduce a new 27-inch mini-LED display in the first quarter of 2023. This was stated by analyst Ross Young, an official voice for Supply Chain Consultants Offer (DSCC). In a tweet shared only with his premium followers, reported by MacRumors, Young mentioned that Apple will be delaying the screen debut until the first quarter of next year.
In fact, we recall that the analyst had previously mentioned a screen with these characteristics, assuming the possible launch of WWDC 2022 held in June, but in a subsequent tweet he indicated delays that would have forced Apple to postpone the screen: before in October and now starting in 2023.
Over the course of the school year, Apple – like other IT companies and beyond – faces supply restrictions that cause delays in the availability of many products, including Macs and monitors, which is one reason Apple may have delayed the new offering several times.According to the developments circulated so far, Apple’s new 27-inch display should feature small LED panels with support for Apple ProMotion technology, and therefore a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. The monitor in question is not intended to be a replacement for the current Pro Display XDR, a 32-inch display with 6K resolution, but it looks a lot like the 27-inch Studio Display Retina 5K.
mini-LED technology and Apple ProMotion support (in other words, a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz) should raise the price compared to the studio monitor, whose price in Italy starts at 1799 euros.
Last month, Bloomberg reporter Mark Gorman reported that Apple might introduce new iPads and Macs in October through press releases rather than holding a special event. According to the same source, Apple is also planning to announce the much-anticipated Mac Pro with an Apple Silicon chip later this year. This may be the time for the debut of the M2 Extreme.
