Last week, Apple introduced various new hardware, including the Apple Studio Display. With the new monitor, the sale of the competition is now stopped.
the essentials in brief
- Exactly one week ago there was new Apple hardware at “Peek Performance”.
- Among other things, the 5K-capable Apple Studio Display was presented at the event.
- The Apple monitor is now where the LG Ultrafine 5K was previously sold at Apple.
A new iPhone, iPad, M1 calculator and even a monitor were on display at Apple’s Peek Performance event last week. The Apple Studio Display is supposed to represent Apple’s entry-level screen with a price tag of 1699 francs. At least it is now the cheapest monitor in Apple’s web shop. The competing product from LG has been removed.
The Apple Studio Display offers these advantages
The LG Ultrafine 5K, optimized for Macs, is not only inferior to the new Studio Display in price. The Apple monitor is packed with interesting technical features such as six loudspeakers for spatial audio. This is further supported by the microphone array with three microphones. In addition, the 1080p webcam of the screen from Cupertino features Apple’s own “Center Stage” technology.
The highlight is clearly the built-in processor: With an A13 Bionic, the Studio Display basically offers the same computing power as an iPhone 11. This drives all the smart features of Apple’s monitor.
Nevertheless, the basic version of the Studio Display is almost 500 francs more expensive than the LG monitor that was previously offered in the shop. If you also want a height-adjustable stand for the Apple Studio Display, you will have to pay another 400 francs. This feature is standard on the LG Ultrafine 5K, for example.
