LG UltraFine 5K Revived with USB-C (Updated) »

Benjamin Mayo at 9to5Mac:

Apple is now selling a new generation of the 5K LG UltraFine display. For the first time, the 5K UltraFine is now compatible with the iPad Pro, finally offering a 5K display option for 2018 iPad Pro users.

Previously, the 5K UltraFine display would only work over Thunderbolt. Now, it can output 5K over USB-C DisplayPort, which means it can now work with any of Appleā€™s current Mac and iPad Pro lineup.

My wife uses the UltraFine 4K with her MacBook Air, and while the enclosure is a little clumsy, the panel looks great. I’d still love to see Apple put one of these in a thinner iMac case, but this looks like the best option for those who want to use an external display with their Mac.

Update: According to a new support document from Apple, this display is limited to 3840 x 2160 at 60Hz when used on a pure USB-C system, such as the iPad Pro or the 12-inch MacBook, or when connected to a Thunderbolt 2 system, like the 2013 Mac Pro. I think it’s fair to say this is still a Thunderbolt 3 display, just with a USB-C compatibility mode now in place.
