Apple Could Have A 31.6-inch 6K Display In The Works

It has been a few years since Apple officially discontinued ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/2018/06/thunderbolt-display-officially-discontinued/)its Thunderbolt displays ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/2018/06/thunderbolt-display-officially-discontinued/). LG has since taken over where the company has been producing UltraFine monitors ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/2018/11/lg-ultrafine-5k-available/) designed for Apple’s computers. However, it seems that Apple could be considering getting back into the display game.

This is according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo whose recent research note ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/2019/02/17/apple-31-inch-6k-display-mini-led-kuo/) claims that Apple could actually have a new display in the works. According to the analyst, Apple could be working on a 31.6-inch 6K display with a mini LED-like backlight design that could see a release in 2019. Currently, the biggest display that Apple offers would be the 27-inch iMac or the 27-inch LG UltraFine, both of which offer a 5K display, so this new display would definitely be taking things up a notch.

Kuo’s report shouldn’t come as a surprise for those who have followed Apple news over the years. This is because Apple exec Phil Schiller had previously stated that the company is working on a “pro display”. This was in response to customers wondering about Apple’s plans for a new Mac Pro.

Schiller was quoted as saying, “As part of doing a new Mac Pro — it is, by definition, a modular system — we will be doing a pro display as well. Now you won’t see any of those products this year; we’re in the process of that. We think it’s really important to create something great for our pro customers who want a Mac Pro modular system, and that’ll take longer than this year to do.” Of course whether or not this “pro” display will be the 31.6-inch 6K mini LED display that Kuo is claiming remains to be seen, so take it with a grain of salt for now.
