Last year, Apple announced a partnership with LG that would see the latter company rolling out 4K and 5K displays under the UltraFine brand.
Apple has clarified through a support document published on its website that LG’s latest UltraFine 5K display works at a lower resolution when used with older Macs. Only the company’s latest MacBook Pro lineup are capable of driving the monitor at 5K resolution. This includes the 2016 MacBook Pro without Touch Bar and Touch ID as well.
After Apple announced the new MacBook Pro lineup, and took time on stage to promote a display lineup from LG, there were obvious questions about a future standalone display from the company itself.
A report from The Korea Economic Daily reports that LG Innotek is working closely with Apple to create a camera module that allows for 3D photography. The 3D camera system will make use of LG Innotek’s dual camera system, and it will likely find its place inside Apple’s 2017 iPhone.
At yesterday’s “Hello Again” event, Apple unveiled a brand new 15-inch MacBook Pro that can run up to four 4K external displays at the same time.
At today’s MacBook Pro-focused event, the company also happened to show off, and promote, a new external display from LG.
Designing a smartphone takes time, and as features get added, removed, or tweaked, sometimes the design gets changed, too.
Yearly refreshes for phones isn’t new, and for LG it’s that time of the year to launch a brand new flagship of their own: The G4.
Support for external 4K displays has been around for Macs for a little while now, and Apple’s list of supported displays continues to grow.
