Apple has introduced its own Pro monitor but it will continue to sell LG UltraFine monitors at lower price points. The two companies say that these monitors "are designed specifically for the latest Apple products". While the previous 5K LG monitor was equipped with Thunderbolt only, the new 5K monitor (27MD5KL) offers Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C allowing users to connect a PC or Mac via Thunderbolt or an iPad Pro via USB-C (although limited to 4K60 with iPad Pro). Both connections transfer video, audio and data simultaneously. The 3 USB-C ports can also be used to charge (up to 94W) connected devices.
