The Apple 32" Pro Display XDR 16:9 Retina 6K HDR IPS Display is built with a 32" IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel featuring a 6016 by 3384 6K resolution with Retina display technology that produces crisp, vivid images. As somewhat of a one-size-fits-all solution, the Pro Display XDR is well suited for multitasking and its 6K resolution with a 32" viewing area is plenty to work with. For photo and design-focused users, it's a large canvas that lets you fit all your content, tools, and anything else you'd like, on one screen. Likewise, video editors and audio engineers can stretch out their workflow to get a macro-view of their project. As a cherry on top, its 218 PPI (pixels per inch) rating helps to deliver sharp and detailed images. The Pro Display XDR's main connectivity option is a single Thunderbolt 3 port, which supports up to 96W of host charging, and it has three USB 2.0 Type-C ports for charging and syncing other devices. With the power of Thunderbolt 3, users can daisy-chain up to six displays to their accompanying Mac Pro.
The Pro Display XDR has a sleek and refined all-aluminium chassis with 9mm borders. This reduction in bezel size offers a more immersive viewing experience whether you're hard at work or taking a breather. Either or, users can kick back and relax thanks to its wide viewing angles, which preserve colour and image quality. The honeycomb design on the back is meant to act as a heatsink, which keeps it cool while operating at high brightness levels.
The Apple Pro Display XDR is available in two versions: one with a standard glass finish and another with nano-texture glass. Both are engineered for low reflectivity, but the nano-texture finish offers enhanced glare reduction for those who are a bit more sensitive or work under harsh lighting conditions.
XDR stands for Extreme Dynamic Range and is essentially HDR (High Dynamic Range) at Apple's standards. The backlighting consists of an array of 576 LEDs that can sustain a brightness level of 1000 cd/m² and can even reach up to 1600 cd/m² for a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio to truly emphasize the differences between light and dark.
Featuring a P3-wide colour gamut and 10-bit colour depth for 1.073 billion colours, the Pro Display is ideal for colour-critical work. Additionally, its 576 LEDs are also individually calibrated and work with an algorithm that modulates their intensity to produce the best possible image.
To adapt to the variety of standards content creators work within media such as digital cinema (P3-DCI), photography (P3-D65), HDTV video (BT.709-BT.1886), design and print (P3-D50), Internet and web (sRGB), etc., Reference Modes reconfigure the display to match. It optimizes values like colour space, white point, gamma, and brightness. Alternatively, users can also set up their own custom profiles as needed.
True Tone technology on the Pro Display XDR utilizes two ambient light sensors, one on the front and one on the back, to measure and then adjust the display's colour intensity for accurate colours based on your environment.
Since the Pro Display XDR does not come with a stand, users can purchase either the Pro Stand or VESA adapter for mounting.
