This was the most memorable part of the presentation, no doubt. When Apple Pro Stand support was presented at its outrageous price, the audience did not respond in the best way. Even the presenter quickly moved to the next slide, leaving the stage. The following video shows the reaction.
Of course, the internet was flooded with jokes and memes about the Pro Stand. After all, it wouldn't be an Apple presentation without a piece of technology for 'ostentation'.
The Apple Pro Stand is made of metal and magnetically connects to the Pro Display XDR monitor. The stand allows you to adjust the monitor diagonally, vertically and tilt up to 25 degrees.
