Apple Issues New Studio Display Firmware Update With Audio Fixes
Apple has today released a new version of the 15.5 firmware that currently powers its Studio Display, the monitor that has been around for a little while now but continues to be plagued with problems.
The new version carries the build number 19F80, replacing the 19F77 version that was previously available.
We’ve heard of multiple issues relating to poor webcam performance since the day the Studio Display first went on sale, and it isn’t yet known whether this update helps improve matters there.
This time around though, this latest update – as per Apple’s support document – is here to fix the speaker issues that some have reported of late, with some saying that their speakers either cut out, play distorted audio, or sometimes play audio at the incorrect speed.
This new software update is now available for download by the Mac that it is connected to. Those with a Studio Display should head to System Preferences > Software Update to install the firmware on their monitor.
Apple released the Studio Display alongside the Mac Studio earlier this year and it has not been well received, although few issues have been identified with the monitor’s display. All problems are instead related to the speakers and webcam accessories that are built into it.
