Apple’s brand new MacBook Air will offer compatibility with external displays supporting up to 6K resolution for the first time. And yes, this does include Apple’s own Pro Display XDR, meaning that the company’s $4,500.00+ 32-inch Retina 6K display has another device added to its compatibility list.

The chances are if you are investing in Apple’s 32-inch Retina 6K Pro Display XDR and paying upwards of $5,000.00 – if you get the nano-texture glass variant – then you are not going to be pairing that with a $999.00 MacBook Air as your main setup of choice.

Be that is it may though, it is now possible to put the two together should you wish to do so. Apple has quietly added the new 2020 MacBook Air to the list of devices compatible for powering up the 6K display on the Pro Display XDR; a first ever for the MacBook Air.

Apple’s brand new machine is definitely going to appeal to a lot of people. Not only does it come in at a decent price, starting at just $999.00, but it also offers an array of new features and capabilities that are definitely going to appeal, such as being twice as fast as previous models thanks to vastly improved CPU performance. It also offers a starting capacity of 256GB of storage and comes with a stunning new Magic Keyboard and the same thin and light design that has always won people over.

In addition to all of that, there is also the confirmation that it can be paired with the stunning – but super-expensive – Apple Pro Display XDR for stunning visuals and utterly incredible outputs. It also immediately extends the list of devices that are compatible with the Pro Display XDR and could theoretically make that monitor a lot more appealing to some people who are actually going to invest in this new powerful and affordable MacBook Air.

Given how good this MacBook Air appears to be on paper, and the fact that it is very affordable and has additional discounts in place for students and educational establishments, it is likely to be extremely popular. Whether or not it, by proxy, it pushes sales of the Pro Display XDR in an upward direction is another story entirely but those consumers can be safe in the knowledge that their new lightweight machine offers compatibility with monitors up to 6K.
