Apple has removed the LG Ultrafine 5K display from its lineup. The monitor was for years the external monitor for MacBook users, but it now has a successor: the expensive Studio Display.

LG Ultrafine 5K from Apple
The LG Ultrafine 5K Monitor is no longer for sale via an Apple† Monitor may be pulled from market altogether, as LG itself is no longer in stock. Currently, you can still purchase the monitor via web stores such as Amac.
Apple hasn’t sold an external display to consumers in recent years. As a result, the LG Ultrafine 5K was the right choice if you’re looking for a big screen MacBook Air or MacBook Pro to contact him. At 27 inches and 5K resolution, it was a good match for Apple laptops. In addition, the screen has a built-in webcam.
Apple revealed during march event Last week, we finally got our very own display: the studio monitor. It has a much nicer design, the same 5K resolution, and a better webcam theater center† Additionally, peak brightness is slightly higher with 600 nits and the screen has six built-in speakers. So it only makes sense that Apple would remove the LG Ultrafine 5K from its lineup.
Apple monitors are not cheap
The studio screen is better than the LG Ultrafine 5K, but it’s also much more expensive. I paid a minimum of 1779 euros for it, while the LG costs 1399 euros. If you want to be able to adjust the height of the screen, you will pay up to 2239 euros. With LG this was a standard option.
In fact, the Studio Display is just a 27-inch iMac without a computer inside. So the monitor is expensive. It could be even crazier. 32 inch ApplePro Display XDR, with a resolution of 6K, costs no less than 5,499 euros. If you want a standard with it, an additional 1099 euros will be added.
