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.

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.
In terms of sound, the display has three noise-canceling microphones to enhance video calls. As for the speakers, it has 4 woofers and 2 tweeters placed in different zones. This allows it to offer Dolby Atmos stereo sound and ‘Spatial Audio’.
For connectivity, the monitor features three USB Type-C ports and a Thunderbolt connector capable of delivering 96W charging.

Apple’s new external monitor will be available from next March 18 at an official price of $1,599 and $1,499 for Education. The version with “nanotextured glass” will be available for $1,999.
