This was the most memorable part of the show, no doubt. When the Apple Pro Stand was introduced at its absurd price, the audience did not react the best. Even the presenter hurried to the next slide, leaving the stage. The following video shows the reaction.
How could it not be, the internet was flooded with jokes and memes about the Pro Stand. After all, it would not be an Apple presentation without a piece of technology for ostentation.
The Apple Pro Stand is constructed of metal and magnetically attaches to the XDR Pro Display. The stand allows you to adjust the monitor diagonally, vertically and tilt up to 25 degrees.
