The MacFormat team debates the hot Apple issues of the day, using their iPhones of course!
The team’s views on the latest Apple tech
Apple is working on a standalone display, and some reports say it’ll have an 8K screen! I’m not sure what to make of that. 5K is still more than most people need at the moment, so 8K seems like a bit much! Well I’m sure designers will love it – I’m already getting excited. Remember that Apple said it’s working on this alongside the Mac Pro, so an 8K display won’t be for the mainstream. That’s true, and I can’t imagine it’ll be priced for the mainstream either! But there are people shooting 8K footage who would really benefit from being able to edit it on a nice big (OK, huge) 8K resolution screen. Apple is determined to win back high-end pros with the Mac Pro reboot, so putting out an 8K display doesn’t seem too far-fetched. Exactly. Just thinking about the price makes me nervous! An Apple 8K display combined with a shiny new high-end Mac Pro? Only the five richest kings of Europe will be able to afford it all! Better start counting the pennies then. But we do know one thing – whatever the pixel count, I’m sure the display will look gorgeous. Apple hasn’t lost its sense of style yet.
