Apple’s 27-inch Mini-LED monitor could be delayed for a long time

Due to a lockdown-related problem in China, the rumoured monitor will not arrive until October.

Apple’s reported 27-inch display, which is claimed to use Mini-LED technology, will not be available as soon as prior rumours predicted.

Apple’s 27-inch monitor has been pushed back significantly, according to a tweet from Ross Young, a well-known leaker (and CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants).

As you can see, the display may not debut until October 2022, rather than June as originally planned (probably to coincide with WWDC, which takes place early in the month).

The delay, according to Young, is due to the lockdown in Shanghai, as production was going to be handled there (by Quanta), but Apple was compelled to relocate. That’s clearly not a minor alteration, and if it is, we may expect a few months to be added to the wait for this 27-inch screen.

According to a recent rumour, Apple’s MacBook Pro production is likewise in the same boat.

Analysis: Studio Display Pro will almost certainly be costly

This might theoretically be an Apple Studio Display Pro, a higher-end version of the new Studio Display with one major change — the addition of Mini-LED, of course.

Initially, the rumour mill (including Young) thought a 27-inch iMac Pro was on the way, but there was some miscommunication, and prior mentions of such an iMac were actually based on leaks pertaining to this 27-inch Mini-LED display. Some people on Twitter are still wondering if this is an all-in-one computer from Apple or just a display.

We can anticipate it to be expensive if it is a Studio Display Pro. Young was queried about a price range in the above tweet by one commenter, but the leaker just replied that it would be “expensive.”

That’s understandable, given that the Apple Studio Display is already a costly device, starting at $1,599 (£1,499 / AU$2,499). Any Pro version with Mini-LED might see a significant Apple premium added, potentially more than doubling the price tag to roughly three grand.
