Finally, Apple has announced its new external display at WWDC, the Pro Display XDR. With new specs, ports, and a fancy new screen, here's everything you need to know about the Pro Display XDR!

The basic specs

The new Apple external display is a Retina 6K display, with a 32-inch LCD display that has 20 million pixels! Here's a rundown of the other important specs:

  • 31.6 inches measure diagonally
  • 6K resolution
  • HDR capability
  • Low reflectivity
  • 1,000 nits brightness with 1,600 nits peak
  • 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio
  • P3 color gamut
  • Thunderbolt 3


The brightness of the Pro Display XDR is pretty impressive. It can run consistently at 1000 nits!

Up to six Pro Display XDR

With Thunderbolt 3 and the newly announced Mac Pro, you can run up to six Pro Display XDR at once, meaning you can have access to a landscape of 120 million pixels!

Pro Stand

Every great monitor needs a great stand, and the Pro Stand is sold separately from the Pro Display XDR. The Pro Stand gives you the ability to better articulate and find the perfect position for your workspace. You'll be able to adjust the tilt, height, and rotation — that's right, it can be in portrait orientation!

Price and availability

The Pro Display XDR will be approximately $4,999 just for the display itself. If you want the Pro Stand it's an extra $999. The Pro Stand and the Pro Display XDR will be available to order in Fall 2019.
