A computer as powerful as the new Mac Studio could not arrive alone. Apple accompanies it with the new Studio Display, a 27-inch external monitor with 5K resolution that can be connected to different computers.

This is Apple’s most advanced monitor next to the Apple Pro Display XDR, with a flexible aluminum design that allows it to be placed in different positions and an improvement in the multimedia section, with the inclusion of a front camera and a sound system compatible with Dolby Atmos. These are the features of the Mac Studio Display.

Apple Studio Display

This is a 27-inch display, with a Retina panel with 5K resolution and up to 600 nits of brightness. Apple explains that it has 14.7 million pixels and incorporates technologies that we had already seen in other devices such as True Tone.

The design is particularly interesting. Apple offers us a new finish, built-in aluminum, and a flexible design capable of tilting the screen up to 30 degrees. The arm also allows you to adopt various positions, from raising the screen to rotating the screen and placing it vertically.

Despite being an external monitor, the Studio Display adds an Apple A13 processor to perform various processing. Right at the top center, it incorporates a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera, like the one included in the iPad.
