Apple has felt your pain (well, maybe) and cut the prices on various accessories and adapters that work with the new MacBook Pro with Touch Display. The company has also dramatically cut prices on the LG displays designed specifically to work with the new Mac laptops.
The new MacBook Pro has Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, which have a different connector than that of USB-A devices and cables like the iPhone sync cable. In a statement Apple said, "We recognize that many users, especially pros, rely on legacy connectors to get work done today and they face a transition. We want to help them move to the latest technology and peripherals, as well as accelerate the growth of this new ecosystem.”
Consequently, Apple has reduced pricing on certain items effective until Dec. 31. And, along with dropping accessory prices, Apple has also sliced the prices of the 4K and 5K LG UltraFine Displays unveiled at the Oct. 27 “hello, again” event. The LG UltraFine 5K Display is now priced at $974, a $325 price cut from its original price of $1,299.95. The LG UltraFine 4K Display is now priced at $524, a $175 price cut from its original price of $699.95.
