LG UltraFine 5K Display 'Currently Unavailable' From Apple

Apple is sold out of the $1,300 LG UltraFine 5K Display, which is listed as "Currently Unavailable" from the online Apple Store and is unavailable for pickup from Apple retail stores.

The LG UltraFine 5K Display is not available for purchase in the United States, the UK, Canada, and Brazil, as noted by 9to5Mac. Prior to when the monitor was listed as unavailable, there were long shipping times after purchase, which suggests there could be possible supply issues.

If supply issues are indeed at fault (and supply problems have also caused long shipping times for other Apple products like the iMac), the display's unavailability is likely to be temporary. Apple has not provided details on whether the monitor is temporarily sold out or no longer being sold, however.

Last May, the 5K LG UltraFine Display was also listed as unavailable from the ‌Apple Store‌ prior to a refresh in late July 2019, which is the model that was purchasable up until recently. Apple is continuing to offer the Pro Display XDR, but that is a much more expensive display option at $5,000. The 4K LG UltraFine model is also available for purchase.

The Thunderbolt 3 LG UltraFine 5K Display offers a 5120 x 2880 resolution with 14.7 million pixels and P3 wide color gamut, plus built-in stereo speakers, a camera, a microphone, and an adjustable stand at a $1,300 price point.

Personally, I'm enjoying the false hope this is giving me that Apple will release a consumer-level display instead of partnering with another company.

I own two of these monitors. They are terrific! Not sure why everyone is hating on them. In fact, name a monitor that is better under $3,000?

This monitor makes 4K monitors (of the same size) look pixelated.

I dream the out-of-stock means an amazing Apple display is here, but alas I suspect it’s just work from home and learn from home demand.

But I’d love an Apple display The LG is ugly as sin. I’m stunned Apple hasn’t released one years ago. Huge miss.
