A brand-new Mac Desktop powered by the M1 Max and new M1 Ultra, Apple’s all-new Studio Display monitor officially hit shelves in March. The Studio Display, which was announced during Apple’s “Peek Performance” event alongside the Mac Studio, has a 27-inch 5K-Retina display, 12-megapixel ultrawide camera with Center Stage and a high-fidelity six-speaker sound system. It’s now available for purchase from Apple directly, or from Best Buy, Adorama or B&H. We’ll continue to update this page as the Studio Display becomes available at more retailers, along with any deals or offers that might flare up as well.
You can check out CNET’s event recap, where we highlighted all of the big announcements from Apple’s event, including the latest iPhone SE, M1-powered iPad Air, M1 Ultra Mac Studio and other Apple products.
How much does the Studio Display cost?
You can buy the Studio Display starting at $1,599 (£1,499, AU$2,499) and $1,499 for education. You can also upgrade to nano-texture glass ($300) and a tilt- and height-adjustable stand ($400).
Where to order the Studio Display
Besides Apple, there are a few retailers that have the Studio Display available for purchase. However, you might be waiting for a little while before your Studio Display is delivered. Some of the retailers do not actually have it in stock yet, and some retailers only have select configurations available, so check the retailer websites for expected delivery dates. We’ll continue to update this section as it becomes more widely available.
Alongside the new Mac Studio, Apple introduced an all-new Studio Display. It’s now available for purchase at Apple, with an estimated delivery in mid-April. It includes Apple’s A13 chip, a 12MP ultrawide camera for use with Center Stage, Spatial Audio and more.
Other than Apple, Adorama is the only vendor that has all configurations of the new Studio Display available for immediate purchase. It should be noted, however, that products are back-ordered with an expected arrival date in September for when your monitor will actually be delivered.
Best Buy is one of the earliest retailers to carry the Studio Display. The standard and slightly pricier height-adjustable models are currently sold out, though you can sign up for notifications when they are restocked. However, the models featuring nano-texture glass or the VESA mount adapter aren’t available for purchase quite yet, though we expect that to change in the near future.
Similar to Adorama, you can currently purchase the Studio Display from B&H, but it doesn’t actually have any in stock yet. The standard model with the tilt adjustable stand or VESA mount adapter can be purchased now, while the model featuring the height-adjustable stand or any with nano-texture glass are only available for preorder. Though it’s not particularly clear how those differ, as your monitor won’t ship right away in any case.
