Apple Reportedly Developing 27-Inch Mac Redesign Featuring LCD Display Rather Than Mini-LED

Apple has been said to be developing a new 27-inch redesigned Mac, with suppliers readying components for an early 2022 launch. Reports on the new model have been stirring as it was recently said the new device would feature a mini-LED display. However, it appears as though Apple may indeed retain the use of an LCD display after all.

In a follow-up report, Digitimes claims that suppliers have begun shipping components to manufacturers for the 27-inch redesigned Mac to be assembled. According to industry sources, it’s said that “the device will not come with a mini LEDs display as previously speculated.”

Although the new device won’t be utilizing a mini-LED display, the report claims that LED chips used in the display will be up 30-40 percent from previous models. This will help ensure a higher brightness is obtained for the user. Beyond the display, the new 27-inch Mac is said to feature a similar design to the contemporary 24-inch Mac, which was released earlier this year. IT’s also expected that consumers will have multiple colour options to choose from as with the 24-inch model.

It’s still unknown whether or not the new Mac will run off Intel silicon or transition to using Apple’s M1 Pro and M1 Max. The current 27-inch model features Intel’s chip. However, users can choose from the M1 Pro and M1 Max when purchasing a new 24-inch Mac.
