When Apple first discontinued their Thunderbolt Display, the corporate labored with LG to launch UltraFine shows designed for the Mac. Then Apple adopted up with their very own Pro Display XDR, which prompt that possibly the partnership with LG had ended, however now a brand new report suggests in any other case.
According to a sequence of tweets by @dylandkt, they counsel that LG might truly be engaged on three new screens for Apple. Two of those screens are apparently designed to share comparable specs as Apple’s new 24-inch iMac and the upcoming rumored 27-inch iMac Pro, whereas the third would be the successor to the 32-inch Pro Display XDR that may sport Apple branding.

However, the third mannequin is reasonably attention-grabbing as a result of the tweet claims that there are references to a customized silicon that might be used to energy the show. We’re unsure what the chipset might be used for and how much benefit it may need over a show that doesn’t have a chipset, however we’ll have to attend and see.
Note that that is just for the 32-inch mannequin and that the opposite fashions won’t have a customized chipset and will likely be extra conventional shows. Either manner, take it with a grain of salt for now and hopefully we’ll have extra particulars come 2022 which is when Apple is presumably going to announce them.
