Apple has always been known for its steep prices. From phones to computers, tablets to cases, if it’s coming from Apple, it will probably be one of the priciest options available.

Apple has finally started to sell the new Mac Pro workstation and Pro DIsplay XDR monitor in India. The Mac Pro is available at a starting price of $5999 while the Pro Display XDR starts at Rs 4,49,900 in India. The Mac Pro features workstation-class Xeon processors up to 28 cores, a memory system with 1.5TB capacity and a graphics architecture featuring the ‘world’s most powerful’ graphics card. It also introduces Apple Afterburner, an accelerator card.

The nano-textured glass variant of the Pro Display XDR costs Rs 5,29,900. The monitor doesn’t come with the stand. The XDR display stand can do a lot of stuff like tilt at various angles and even rotate from portrait mode to landscape mode. But all this comes at a price of Rs 91,900.

Apple Pro Display XDR features a 32-inch Retina 6K display with P3 wide and 10-bit colour, 1,600 nits

The Pro XDR display in itself is an impressive piece of machinery. It’s a 32-inch LCD display which offers native 6K resolution of 6016 x 3384 pixels. Compared to the iMac 5K display, the Pro Display XDR is 40% bigger and offers super-wide viewing angles. Apple claims that it is using a new polariser in the display that offers 25 times better colour and contrast ratio than any typical LCD display. On top of it there’s an anti-reflective coating, the nano-texture surface that reduces reflections and maintains the image quality.

Apple’s 5G iPhone May Rely on a Custom Antenna: Report

Sounds like Qualcomm’s antennas are too large for Apple and that is why the iPhone manufacturer is designing the antenna module that’ll be utilized in its own 5G iPhone versions. According to a report in Fast Company, in a year where the 5G radio will be the new iPhone’s spotlight feature, Apple has made a decision to style the telephone antenna itself.

Apple balked at the QTM 525 millimetre-wave antenna module offered to it by Qualcomm because it doesn’t fit into the sleek industrial design Apple wants for the new cell-phone, a source with knowledge of Apple’s programs told Fast Company on Friday.

However, chipset producing giant Qualcomm will still provide the 5G modem chip used in the new iPhones.

Apple usually layouts on many monitors, and it is simultaneously working on a different layout that utilizes the Qualcomm antenna and modem.

It might default to the option after this season, our source stated. But that will need Apple to settle for a somewhat thicker iPhone than it needs. Qualcomm has stated that its QTM 525 antenna module may support 5G smartphone layouts quicker than 8 millimetres thick, the report added.

Apple is expected to launch as many as four new iPhone models spread across different display sizes in 2020. The recent report claimed that the iPhone 12 will come in three size versions, including 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch, but Apple will release two distinct 6.1-inch models, according to a source. The 6.7-inch model will have a thickness of around 7.4mm, which would be nearly 10 per cent thinner than the iPhone 11 Pro Max at 8.1mm.

Additionally, it also claims that the 6.7-inch model will be slightly taller than the iPhone 11 Pro Max and feature a triple-lens rear camera.
