Display analyst, Ross Young claims that Apple has delayed the launch of its new mini-LED external display to 2023.
After the tech giant introduced an affordable external monitor 27-inch “Studio Display” in March this year, it was reported that the company will also launch a 27-inch “Studio Display Pro” with mini-LED in 2022. However, the release dates kept on changing; starting with a possible launch in June, rumor mills moved the goal post to October.
Apple’s new 27-inch “Studio Display Pro” with mini-LED will launch in Q1, 2023
Sharing information on the alleged Studio Display Pro monitor, Young told his Super Follows on Twitter that he has “heard that the Apple mini-LED monitor launch was pushed to Q1’23.”
Although in the latest Tweet, Ross did not mention the reason behind the delay, previously he said that the external monitor was facing production delays. In May, Ross reported that Apple pushed the launch of the 27-inch mini-LED display from June to October because of COVID-19-related production disruptions.
Now, the new early 2023 release timeframe is corroborated by Mark Gurman from Bloomberg who said that the tech giant is not going to hold an October event this year to unveil next-generation Macs and iPads. This means the new M2-powered Macs and iPads are likely to release in 2023, along with a new mini-LED monitor.
Mini-LED display technology offers several advantages over LCD panels. The technology offers higher brightness and deeper contrasts. In addition, mini-LED backlighting will allow Apple to enable its ProMotion technology and offer a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Apple’s ProMotion technology automatically adjusts a display’s refresh rate as per the motion of users’ on-screen content. It makes tasks more responsive and saves battery life.
