Before buying such an expensive piece of machine, we do have several concerns regarding the specifications, price and other related things about it. In this post, I’ve answered the most important question, will Apple 32-inch XDR Display come with a camera for FaceTime? You should be clear with the specifications and what is included in the package of the product and if it accomplishes your requirements, go for it.

Does Apple Pro Display XDR comes with FaceTime Camera?

Besides, Apple is only providing power cord, Thunderbolt 3 Pro Cable, and a Polishing cloth. Additional accessories like Pro Stand or VESA Mount Adapter is sold separately for $999 and $199 respectively. The reason behind launching XDR Display is, the earlier Mac Pro was not much of handy for professional workflows such as video editing. The latest XDR Display is targeted for the audience who is looking for a module that wraps up all the obligations in a single machine.

XDR Display is one of the best inventions by Apple till date, barely a single computer in this world can beat this beast. You might get shocked after hearing that even after spending $4999 on XDR Display, you cannot FaceTime unless you connect an external webcam. The Apple XDR Display doesn’t have a camera for FaceTime, from XDR Display.

Eventually, if you want to FaceTime on XDR Display, then look for the best third party webcam that works with Apple Display. Though, XDR Display comes with three USB-C ports that can be used to connect a webcam and FaceTime your loved ones. We don’t have any alternative option other than buying a webcam.

Can I charge a MacBook Pro from Apple Display [Pro Display XDR]? Thu, 12 Dec 2019 04:59:38 +0000 Read more

Can I charge MacBook Pro from Apple Display? That’s a very clever and practical question asked by one of my friends. This year Apple released the most expensive Apple Display, primarily focused on professional workouts like video editing, photo editing and more. Other than that, this redefined version of Apple Display, can’t be compared with any normal machine, once you’ll buy or use, I bet you won’t doubt on my testimony.

Back to the question, if you are curious to know is it possible to charge MacBook Pro from Apple Display, the answer is YES. It is possible to charge MacBook Pro (2016 or later), by connecting the Thunderbolt 3 port of the Apple Display to the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) of the MacBook Pro. However, Apple doesn’t recommend you charge MacBook Pro from Apple Display, as it won’t charge as fast as when you charge using the AC adapter.

Get An Answer: Can I charge a MacBook Pro from Apple Display?

Personally, I have tried but didn’t get results as I was expecting. Since, the MacBook Pro 2016 or later version, have multiple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), which can be equally be used to charge the MacBook, you might have a question that can I connect more than one charging adapter to charge faster? No, it won’t charge faster even if you plug more than one AC adapter in MacBook Pro.

However, if you plug more than one charging source, the Mac will choose the most relevant power source to charge. So, the conclusion of your question, Is it possible to charge MacBook Pro using Apple Display, is to use the original AC adapter than came with MacBook Pro for reliable and fast charging. Inappropriate or incompatible chargers won’t charge your MacBook Pro as the original one.

If in case, AC adapter is misplaced or not working, at that time, charging MacBook Pro 2016 or later with Apple Display is the best solution until the AC adapter appears to be in working condition.

Apple’s Pro Display XDR requires a special, Apple made a piece of cloth to clean. Don’t even think the display with wet or any other cloth, Apple has made a polishing cloth that can only be used to cleanse the matte nano-texture display. Though this restriction is only for nano-texture glass displays, Apple didn’t specifically mention why to use this specific polishing cloth over any other cleaner, most probably the display requires special treatment and it is made that way.

The reason behind this matte display is to maintain the contrast and for some other reasons, said by Apple. Surprisingly, other than accessories or products this is the first time any user will have to ask for replacement of cleaning cloth directly from Apple. You can’t get it from Amazon or in the local Apple store. Currently, Apple didn’t specify the replacement cost of polishing cloth, but yes, you have to treat the nano-texture display quite gently and only after reading instructions.

In case if you have misplaced or lost the polishing cloth, then ask Apple to provide a replacement for the polishing cloth.  Because the nano-texture screen is delicate and if you use any other piece of cloth then it would leave prints on the screen.

To clean the standard glass

You can use a polishing cloth that came with the display or any other dry, micro-fiber piece of cloth to swab the dust and smudges. Unlike, nano-texture display, in Standard Glass, you can use a wet cloth to wipe out the screen. Before using water with a cloth, kindly remove the power adapter of Pro Display XDR.

If you are using any liquid then make sure it doesn’t have acetone. One most important thing you should keep in mind that not to spray the cleaner/liquid on the display as it may slide into the machine and result in hardware damage.

To clean the stand and enclosure

The enclosure is the side panels of your Pro Display and you know what stand is. Take out the power cord and other connected accessories from the display. Avoid the use of window cleaners, solvents, abrasives, cleaners that have hydrogen peroxide, aerosol sprays, ammonia or household cleaners, to wipe the enclose. Use a soft, lint-free and more of a damp cloth.

If you feel there is dust in the enclosure, then bring a vacuum or use an anti-electrostatic brush point to remove dust. Apple doesn’t recommend to clean enclosure with compressed air.
