Apple’s Brand-New MacBook Air Will Work With Pro Display XDR Up to 6K Resolution

Apple has confirmed that its brand-new MacBook Air will work with its Pro Display XDR with up to 6K resolution.

The Cupertino company today announced that its all-new 2020 MacBook Air supports up to a 6K external display for the first time ever, including the Pro Display XDR (via MacRumors).

The Pro Display XDR is a 32-inch 6K LCD that can hit 1,600 nits of peak brightness, with 1,000 nits of sustained brightness from a full-array local dimming backlight composed of 576 special blue LEDs. It supports true 10-bit colour and the full DCI-P3 color gamut, and Apple says that it can hit a million-to-one contrast ratio using certain industry-standard test patterns.

The full list of compatible devices for Apple’s Pro Display XDR is as follows:

  • Mac Pro (2019) with MPX Module GPUs
  • 15-inch MacBook Pro (2018 or later)
  • 16-inch MacBook Pro (2019)
