Supply chain rumors suggest Apple will launch a new 27-inch display with mini LED backlighting in the first quarter of 2023.
Rumors of a pro-level 27-inch display have circulated since Apple revealed the more "affordable" Studio Display. It lacks HDR, ProMotion, and mini LED backlighting found in Apple's MacBook Pros and 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
According to Display Supply Chain Consultants analyst Ross Young, Apple will reveal a 27-inch mini LED display in early 2023. This information was shared with his super followers on Twitter, so the tweet is only visible to paying members.
Apple already sells the high-end Pro Display XDR with a 6K display, but it also lacks the latest pro-grade features found in other Apple products. That display is meant more for professionals who need expensive reference monitors where color accuracy is the most important detail.
For those who prioritize display refresh rates and optimized backlighting, there could be a new third monitor on its way. A 27-inch mini LED backlit display would target the market between Apple's other current monitors.
