The most notable feature on the new LG UltraFine 5K monitor is its ability to connect with an iPad Pro – offering a stunning larger display for creatives to work on.

Aside from the new stuff, the LG UltraFine 5K monitor remains the same as its predecessor. The monitor offers a P3 wide colours gamut, 500-nit brightness and over 14 million pixels.

The main issue with the LG monitors is also still the same, you have to be willing to splash out over a grand. You can currently grab the LG UltraFine 5K Display for £1179 ($1299) from the Apple Store.
