LG Confirms 27-Inch UltraFine 5K Will Be Coming Back To Apple Stores
Apple removed the LG 27-inch UltraFine 5K from its online store last week which made people wonder if it had been discontinued. However, LG has now confirmed that the display will be coming back to stores – including its own – sooner rather than later.
The display has not been discontinued and is simply struggling for production in terms of parts shortages.
LG has told the Wall Street Journal that the display will come back to stores despite Apple removing it from its own store. That now seems to have been related to the arrival of the 27-inch Studio Display, a product that competes squarely with it although it costs considerably more.
When it does go back on sale the 27-inch UltraFine 5K will sell for $1,299, a price that makes it $300 cheaper than Apple’s own display that will go on sale Friday, March 18.
In terms of when we can expect the LG display to be available once more, LG says that it hopes to have stocks ready to go as soon as next month.
We can only imagine that we will see the display begin to become available at third-party stores around the same time. It remains to be seen whether we will see the display appear back on Apple’s own online store, too.
