Apple Might Be Making a Display Again

There have been lots of interesting rumors about Apple this week, but this one is the most exciting for me:

The cheaper monitor would feature a screen geared more for consumer than professional use and wouldn’t have the brightness and contrast ratio of the top-tier offering. Apple last launched a consumer-grade monitor called the Thunderbolt Display in 2011 for $999 but discontinued it in 2016.

I haven’t loved the monitor options after the discontinuation of the Thunderbolt Display. I loved that thing. It had some nice I/O, powered my laptop, featured a pretty nice panel with great colors, and the speakers weren’t bad either.

I’ve used the LG 5K UltraFine since. It’s not a terrible monitor. The brightness is pretty good, and most of the color is accurate (except when I’m having ghosting issues). But the speakers are terrible and the I/O is essentially non-existent.

Here’s to hoping this new display comes in at 32”, has an Apple-esque design with minimal bezels, a 4K webcam, and speakers I can actually use when I need a break from my headphones.
