Did the iPhone inspire Apple's next Mac display?

While iOS 17 has proven to be a fairly iterative update for the iPhone, one particular feature has caught fans' attention. StandBy mode essentially turns the device into a pseudo 'smart display', showing information like the time or calendar when not in use. But new reports suggest a much bolder take on the idea could be en route.

A notable Apple leaker has revealed that the company is working on multiple new monitor offerings, including one that could feature similar smart display options while idle, thanks to an in-built iOS chip. So sort of like a giant iPhone, then? (If you're after something more pocketable, check out the best iPhone 14 deals.)
