Apple now sells a 1.8-meter Thunderbolt 4 Pro cable for $129 and a three-meter Thunderbolt 4 Pro cable is also on the way with a $159 price tag. Those who are going to use freshly introduced Studio Display, a cheaper 27-inch version of its Pro Display XDR, might not be satisfied with the one-meter Thunderbolt cable included in the box.
