Apple apparently decided to quit its standalone display business. This information was tweeted by the editor in chief at The Verge recently who claimed, that Apple told him about this change in direction. Instead of creating new displays on their own, Apple will work with partners like LG to deliver display solutions for the Mac.

Fans of the Apple Thunderbolt Display or the Apple Cinema Display will have to look for alternative options from other manufacturers in the future, because Apple apparently decided to stop its standalone display business and will instead focus on working with partners like LG to deliver display options specifically suited for the Mac. The Thunderbolt Display sold out in June of this year and was expected to get a successor during the "Hello again" event last week. Instead Apple is now selling new 4K and 5K UltraFine displays made by LG for their newly released MacBook Pro. Apparently this will not change any time soon. Instead Apple says, that the collaboration between them and LG led to displays that are ideally suited for a deep integration with the MacBook Pro.

As a former projectionist still used to working with 35 mm film and experience in computer assembling and overclocking, I was drawn to the professional IT crowd a couple of years back and started working in IT support, Windows administration and project management before discovering my love for traveling the world. Now I am working as a news editor from all parts of the world, mostly writing about gadgets and mobile gear for Notebookcheck.
