Apple says LG's new 5K displays were designed for the new MacBook Pro

If you want the best external monitor for the new MacBook Pro, Apple says your best bet is a new 5K display from LG. The iPhone-maker unveiled the monitor onstage at its Mac event today, saying it had worked closely with LG to make the screen a perfect match for the Pro. They may not be the new 5K Apple Cinema Display some had hoped for, but they are, apparently, the best we're going to get.

The MacBook Pro can support two LG UltraFine 5K displays, which Apple exec Phil Schiller described as the "ultimate docking station" for the laptop. They come with built-in cameras, microphones, speakers, and extra USB ports. (The MacBook Pro itself has four Thunderbolt 3 USB Type-C ports, which function for power, USB, DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA.) We're not sure exactly what the full specs for these monitors are, but we'll update this story as soon as we find out more.
