So did Apple announce a 5K display?
Are you sitting down? The answer is no. Despite rumors suggesting Apple would announce a 5K display at its Mac event, the company didn't have one to show us.
However, Apple did reveal a 5K display from LG. Apple says it worked together with LG to create the display, so you know it'll work well with your new MacBook Pro!
How big is it? What's the resolution?
The LG UltraFine 5K Display is a 27-inch behemoth! It supports the P3 wide color gamut (like iPhone 7, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and iMac) and has a 5120 x 2880 resolution (it's got more than 14.7 million pixels).
How will I connect it to my Mac?
It comes with a Thunderbolt 3 cable (USB-C port) that not only serves up your MacBook Pro's display, but charges your Mac as well.
How does it compare to Apple's Thunderbolt Display? Will it work as a hub?
Yep. The display has three USB-C ports, built-in stereo speakers, a camera, and a microphone. It's a lot like a Thunderbolt Display … it's just not made by Apple.
Why's it called UltraFine?
Well, the 27-inch display has a crap-ton of pixels (14.7 million), it's super bright, and it's got wide color. Basically, it looks very, very good, hence the "UltraFine" name.
Cool, when can I buy one?
Not yet. Apple says the display will be ready in December. It'll run you $1,299.95, so you've got plenty of time to save up!
What if I don't want to wait?
Well, it didn't get a mention on stage, but LG has a new 21.5-inch UltraFine 4K Display. That's a 4096 x 2304 resolution (more than 9.4 million pixels) with the same wide color support and three USB-C ports.
Best of all, you can order it today, though shipping is out 5 - 6 weeks.
