LG has officially refreshed Ultrafine 5K and Ultrafine 4K monitors with support for iPad Pro. These are essentially same as their previous versions except for a few changes here and there. The biggest difference is that they can now be used as a secondary display alongside the iPad Pro.
Starting with the LG Ultrafine 5K monitor, it sports a 27-inch display with 5120 x 2880 pixels resolution like the predecessor. This results in over 14.7 million pixels with a pixel density of 218 pixels per inch. The display panel supports P3 wide color gamut and has a peak brightness of 500 nits.
The good thing is that the monitor has an adjustable height and tilt to ensure that it meets the requirements or preference of users. It comes with USB Type-C connectivity port in addition to the existing Thunderbolt 3 port. The USB Type-C port ensures that iPad Pro users can connect their tablet to the monitor and use it as a secondary display. It is claimed to offer a hassle-free transfer of videos, audios, and data between a Mac and the display.
It features full compatibility with macOS Mojave 10.14.6 and iOS 12.4 to offer quick shortcuts. For examples, users will be able to make use of Touch Bar or keyboard to control the display brightness as well as volume level. Other features include a built-in webcam, microphone, and stereo speakers. It is also capable of charging a USB Type-C featuring device like Mac/iPad Pro via 94W power. It has been priced at $1,299.95 with availability via Apple.com and select physical Apple stores.
On another hand, the LG Ultrafine 4K has a 23.7-inch display which is claimed to be 10% larger than the predecessor. It also has P3 wide color gamut support and 500 nits of peak brightness. The connectivity options include Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type-C ports along with 85W charging support. If interested, you can get it for $699.95 via Apple's online and offline stores.
