Apple sells refreshed version of LG's UltraFine 4K display

Apple sells refreshed version of LG's UltraFine 4K display Just because Apple has stopped selling the UltraFine 5K doesn't mean it has given up on LG's monitors altogether. In sync with the launch of the eight-core MacBook Pro, the company has quietly started selling a new version of LG's UltraFine 4K. The new version is lower resolution (it's 'just' 3,840 x 2,160), but it jumps from 21.5 inches to 23.7 inches and now includes two Thunderbolt 3 ports to let you daisy chain devices.

On stage at WWDC 2019 on Monday afternoon, Apple's vice president of hardware engineering, John Ternus, had just re-appeared in front of the audience.

For the past 20 minutes, various Apple executives had taken the stage to show off the new features of the Mac Pro, Apple's most powerful computer ever, and one intended for professionals. Now, Ternus was back to reveal how much they were selling the beast of a computer for.

The announcement of the price points for the Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR monitor - starting at $6,000 and $5,000, respectively - were met with cheers and applause. But when it came time to debut the cost for the monitor stand, Ternus's announcement received something rare for an Apple event - groans.

The question about what exactly the " i " prefix in Apple 's iPhone, iMac, iPod and more stands for has been swirling around the Internet again. “We are targeting this for the no. 1 use that consumers tell us they want a computer for, which is to get on the Internet simply and fast.”

The murmurs rippling through the crowd were audible even on the event's livestream, as was what sounded like the sole clap from someone in the audience. Even Ternus seemed to notice the murmurings, but he soldiered on with the rest of the announcement, including that the $999 computer screen stand would be available to purchase this fall.

But the reaction on social media to the $999 stand echoed the sentiment inside the conference auditorium, with those following along via the livestream quickly chiming in to voice their displeasure. Users on Twitter and Reddit were taken aback by the $1,000 price tag for a stand to hold an already-$5,000 monitor (for the full package shown in the picture below, you'd have to fork over at least $12,000).
