Apple’s latest display is shipping this week, so customer should know where not to place it in the home. According to Ars Technica, the LG UltraFine monitor can’t be placed within 6.5 feet of a wireless router. If it is, the display will flicker and stop displaying images. This problem is only seen in the 5K monitor. Another problem that might occur is your MacBook Pro freezing if it’s connected to the UltraFine monitor. Some possible explanations for the malfunction offer by Ars Technica include:

  • Poor electromagnetic radiation shielding
  • Similar harmonic oscillation as Wi-Fi (2.4GHz or 5GHz)
