It has the Apple A13 Bionic chip, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a six-speaker audio system with Dolby Atmos support. On the connectivity front, it offers 3 x USB Type-c ports and a Thunderbolt port. The currently available Pro Display XDR is a professional-grade monitor featuring a 32-inch IPS LCD panel that offers a 6K resolution, 218ppi pixel density, and a 16:9 aspect ratio. It is four Thunderbolt ports but lacks a camera.
