Apple is out of the standalone monitor business

29 Oct 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Apple has told The Verge that it is out of the standalone monitor business. It will pass on the torch to other monitor makers and has partnered with LG to create two 5K and 4K ”UltraFine” monitors.

Goodbye Apple Cinema displays

Despite rumors that Apple would introduce a new standalone monitors with an integrated graphics card, Apple says that it is out of the monitor business.

- “I can add that Apple told me it's out of standalone display business,” Nilay Patel, Editor-in-Chief of The Verge wrote on twitter.

Apple has sold standalone monitors for over a decade, primarily as an accessory to its Mac computers. Along the way, the company made some iconic designs that separated its monitors from other plastic-encased industrial-looking monitors.

Apple Thunderbolt display

Apple discontinued its last remaining 27-inch “Thunderbolt display” earlier this year.

It is not clear if Apple has decided to shelve its last product or if BuzzFeed’s sources were actually confusing the LG “UltraFine” monitors that Apple highlighted on stage at its Mac event with an Apple-branded monitor.

Nevertheless, its goodbye to Apple’s elegant Cinema / Thunderbolt displays. If you loved them for the design above all else you should consider an iMac.
