    Apple will release a 31.6-inch 6K display with a Mini LED-like backlight design in 2019, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who detailed his expectations for Apple's 2019 roadmap in a research note obtained by MacRumors.

    Apple left the display market back in 2016 with the discontinuation of the outdated Thunderbolt Display. Apple did, however, say they were working on a new screen alongside the new Mac Pro. Apple's Phil Schiller said in 2017:
    Kuo describes the new monitor as a "6k3k" display.

    Dang, strong news day for being Sunday!

    So, I'm guessing this means the next iMac redesign will also have a 31.6" screen for the larger model, and probably a 25" screen for the smaller model.

    And that image seems to imply no Apple Watch Series 5 until 2020, which is fine by me!

    I wonder if the decline in phone sales is getting Apple to re-evaluate the high margins of professional hardware.

    That is one damn ugly, ineffective infographic.

    It's Monday in Asia... and that's likely the source of this news rumour.

    More likely they've settled into their new campus and able to re-focus their energies on their products, where it needs to be.

    I was thinking the same thing because an iMac is nearly the exact same dim's as a 32" monitor, so lose the chin, and you have a brand new 32" iMac/Pro. So it would follow with an external display. However, jumping to logical conclusions rarely align with Apple's reality (distortion field), so I'm not convinced.

    If true, I am sure it will make a lot of people happy. At the moment, I don't have a need for such a display with my 5K iMac still rocking, and also using my 60" 4k tv as a display.

    What exactly is a "Mini LED-Like Backlight Design"? It's either LED or a backlit panel... what is "LED-like"?

    Whatever the case, I’ll take it! A redesign this year would be ace for me.

    I assume it’s meant to mean “the pixels are their own ‘backlight’”

    Obviously very sloppy writing.

    My guess is Apple's take on OLED.

    Way too big, imo.

    Have no idea why people want to sit right in front of massive television-sized displays. It looks gaudy. Same with the massive phones they make now.

    Hope they make a smaller version, but I doubt they will.

    Possibly mis-translated for microLED: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MicroLED

    OLED is nothing like MicroLED. Two completely different technologies.

    OLED is not suited for desktop monitors at all. The dock would be burned into the display in no time.

    I'm thinking it may mean they are using something like Samsung's QLED technology.

    Except it’s not getting taller, it’s getting wider. Kuo says new monitor has a 2:1 aspect ratio.

    Kind of fits for the Lunar New Year.

    Wondering what AP means in regard to iPad Mini. Not Apple Pencil?

    Why settle for local dimming LCD when micro LED is coming out?
