The new Apple Studio Display will reportedly replace the current Pro Display XDR, or be added onto Apple's family of panels, with 9to5Mac reporting that Apple's next-gen display has a 7K resolution. We're being told to expect a larger 36-inch panel with a higher pixel density of 245 PPI -- compared to the 32-inch 6K panel on the current Apple Pro Display XDR -- and its 218 PPI.

Interestingly, inside of the new Apple Studio Display will pack a custom SoC with a codename of "J327" that will be a built-in Apple A13 chip. 9to5Mac says that their sources said that the "Apple Studio Display is the same J327 model - meaning that Apple has still been working on an external display with a dedicated Apple Silicon chip".

As for the 7K resolution, let's start with 4K and work our way through.

  • 4K - 3840 x 2160
  • 5K - 5120 x 2880
  • 6K - 6016 x 3384 (Apple Pro Display XDR)
  • 7K - 7360 x 4128 (roughly, estimate, salt required)
  • 8K - 7680 x 4320
