Apple product screen displays to be made by this company
Has leading tech firm Apple decided to stop manufacturing of external display panels? It means that from now on you have to depend on Apple’s competitors to get new monitors like Cinema 5K monitor, rumoured to be in the pipe-line by Apple.
At the launch of its MacBook Pro by Apple CEO Tim Cook, Apple put on display an LG display instead of one of its own, leading to many speculations.
But an Apple staff told The Verge’s Nilay Patel that it is “out of the standalone display biz.”
He tweeted the sudden development, “Good notes by @jsnell. I can add that Apple told me it’s out of standalone display biz.”
Here is Nilay Patel’s tweet on Apple’s plan:

Apple has not come with an announcement on launch of its Apple-branded Thunderbolt 3 Retina Display, but instead announced collaborating with LG for a new 27-inch 5K display which will support a range of accessories for MacBook Pros, iMacs, iPhones, and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
This co-venture itself proves that Apple is now not interested in making a display in near future. Apple seems to be developing a better hardware integration by the help of other smartphone makers. Earlier it has entered into co-ventures with LG’s for designing its new UltraFine display. The new display allows users to even adjust the display’s brightness using their Mac.
Features of new unique LG display:
LG display is unique from others, as it is aesthetically different and its 5K display offers DisplayPort 1.2 and Thunderbolt 3 support. Also for Apple users benefit, they can just adjust the brightness and settings of their LG monitors using their Mac, instead of wasting time by pressing buttons on the TV display.
