Delivery Estimates for Mac Studio and Studio Display Slip to April

Just hours after becoming available for purchase, delivery dates for both the new Mac Studio and its accompanying Studio Display have begun to slip well into April.

The higher-end M1 Ultra ‌Mac Studio‌ now lists delivery estimates of April 13 to April 20, and that delivery timing is likely to get pushed back even further as more people place orders.

Interestingly, upgrading to the 64-GPU version of the ‌M1 Ultra‌ drops the shipping estimate down to the end of March, but that is a $1,000 add-on. Other customized versions also change the delivery date slightly.

The M1 Max ‌Mac Studio‌ still delivers between March 23 and March 30, but even that has slipped from the initial March 18 delivery estimate.

As for the Studio Display, the base model with standard glass and standard stand is still delivering by March 23, but delivery estimates for versions with nano-texture glass and the tilt and height-adjustable stand have slipped into mid-April.

For both products, it is no longer possible to get release date delivery, but Apple could have some in-store stock available for people to purchase. The ‌Mac Studio‌ and Studio Display are both set to launch on Friday, March 18.

I ordered within 5 minutes of the event ending for the monitor and got a second week of April ship date (VESA), so I think all of the non-standard configurations were probably always set for April.

No HDR is a huge bummer.
That’ll be the “innovation” for next year’s $2999 display.

I think every true Mac geek covets this new bit of kit. Honestly $10K for two displays and a pretty maxed-out Ultra Studio is not too shabby, for what you're getting.

Only if you are making good money with one! 10k for a home computer would be insane!
It's called the Studio for a reason, right? And the whole presentation was aimed at creative professionals. Between the laptops, Mac mini, and iMacs, I think the more casual users have plenty of awesome options (I love my M1 Pro 14").

Dang it I am so on the verge of ordering the display... aaaargh
