Sources familiar with the matter said 9to5Mac that Apple’s new display, codenamed J327, will feature an Apple-made SoC, perhaps even the A13 Bionic chip from the iPhone 11 family. A display with an integrated chip could help Macs handle high-graphics resolution without testing your computer’s processor, or perhaps enabling smart features like AirPlay.
The display will also reportedly feature a neural engine to speed up machine learning tasks. It’s unclear how exactly Apple would use the neural engine on a screen.
The post noted that Apple’s plans could change, highlighting how the original Pro Display XDR didn’t debut with all the features it was rumored to contain. We also don’t have a timeline for the new display nor do we know of any of its other specs outside of the little data mentioned above.
The rumor earlier this year suggested that Apple is also working on a lower priced external monitor. When the report was released in January, it was described as in the early development phase and could debut as a successor to the Thunderbolt display that Apple discontinued in 2016.
