After Two Years, Please Bring Back a Reimagined Thunderbolt Display

From Filipe Espósito at 9to5Mac:

While I don’t expect Apple will make the Pro Display XDR more affordable, the company should reconsider bringing back Cinema Display as an alternative for regular users. It doesn’t have to feature a 32-inch 6K display with super HDR or Mini-LED, but it can have above-average quality with the macOS integration that only Apple can do.

Nobody makes great displays like Apple. What I’d love to see is a redesigned Thunderbolt Display that takes the best-in-class panel from the iMac, and pairs it with a touch-capable layer. Not necessarily to enable touch on macOS, but instead to allow touch input when connected to an iPad.1 Bonus points if it features a hinge mechanism like the Surface Studio for using that touchscreen with the Apple Pencil.

  1. Perhaps it could have dual Thunderbolt inputs, one for Mac and one for iPad. ↩︎
