However, one thing very controversial about this monitor is It's $999 Pro stand. In this article, we will go over everything you need to know about Pro Display XDR monitor arms, and we will review the best monitor arms compatible with this monitor.
Unlike many monitors on the market, monitor mounting options for Pro Display XDR is not part of the package when you buy this monitor.
Apple Pro Display XDR has a proprietary adapter in the back that let's you connect one of their two mounting options. These mounting options are:
Apple Pro Display Stand is Apple's own monitor stand specifically designed for Pro Display XDR. It has a beautiful design just like the monitor and basic functionality. However It costs $999 before tax.
Apple VESA Mount Adapter is a small metal part that enables Apple proprietary mount adapter to attach to VESA monitor arms that is industry standard. If you plan to connect any monitor arm or a stand this is the part you need to get from Apple first.
Unlike Apple Studio Display, these adapters are interchangeable and you can switch between them, even after you order monitor with one of these.
When getting a monitor arm, one of the important factors for it to function properly is the weight of the monitor.
If the monitor is heavier than the capacity It won't be able to carry the monitor. And if the monitor is too light for the arm, spring will push the monitor all the way to the top.
In case of Pro Display XDR, It's a 32-Inch monitor with all metal casing while most of the monitor arms are designed for 27-Inch monitors with plastic chassis.
With the required VESA Adapter attached, Apple Pro Display XDR weighs around 17.11 pounds (7.76 kg) which is heavier than what most monitor arms can carry.
So It is very important to pay attention to the weight capacity of the monitor arm, even though It specifies 32-Inch compatibility on their marketing material.
