LG released their new UltraFine 5K monitors last month, an exclusive for high-end MacBook Pro models from Apple - but they were plagued with issues. So much so, that Apple has halted sales of the 5K display until it can fix the monitor, permanently.

Last week I wrote an article saying that early models of the 5K display were affected, and they should'lve been fixed - but according to Business Insider's sources, Apple is halting the sales of the LG UltraFine 5K display because of hardware-based issues within the monitor.

Apple won't have any new high-end 5K displays to sell alongside their new MacBook Pro for at least another 6 weeks or so.
