Apple has finally introduced the new Pro Display XDR in 2019, after cutting the Thunder display in 2016. It features a panel with a 32-inch, 6016-by-3384 resolution, with a pixel density of 218 PPI. Despite its attractive form and parameters, Apple insisted on putting the display in a large, thin cardboard box. When opened, unusual flax-like textures are visible, and the screen is tilted above the outer perimeter of the package.

Randomly comes Apple’s signature polished cloth, as well as the same black power cord and ThunderBolt 3 cable (wrapped in nylon), similar to the nylon braided USB-C-Lighting cable that came with the Mac Pro.

To be sorry, Apple didn’t take out this premium Thunderbolt 3 cable for sale separately. As for the display body, the Pro Display XDR is visible to us after removing the soft paper shell and the on-board screenpa.
The first thing to see the Pro Display XDR was that it was a little bit solid, but still much thinner than we first expected. The corners are slightly rounded and have the same 3D grid on the back as Mac Pro.
This lattice is not only designed to create a unique visual effect, but also provides maximum air convection cooling for high-brightness, high-heat displays.
In addition, a single Thunderbolt 3 port is available on the back, as well as a USB-C hub for connecting other peripherals.
When used, users can simply connect the monitor to the Mac Pro (or other compatible machines) via a single Thunderbolt 3 cable.
With the original sky-high base or VESA wall mount, the user can choose to use it vertically or horizontally.
It’s worth noting that the Pro Display XDR is able to notify the operating system to automatically adjust orientation and resolution when rotation is detected.
The machine delivers a maximum continuous brightness of 1000 nits (HDR peak 1600 nits) with high-quality 6K panels for a great experience.
In addition, Pro Display XDR supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, and HLG content playback.
The display is currently available for order on Apple’s official website, starting at $4,999 (35,000 RMB), $5,999 (42,000 RMB) for nano-etching and $999 (7,000 RMB) for the original stand.
