Apple Stores Can Upgrade a Studio Display's Stand After Purchase
While fine print on Apple's website says Studio Display stands and VESA mount adapters are "not interchangeable," customers can visit an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider to have their Studio Display reconfigured after purchase.
For example, if a customer bought a Studio Display with the standard tilt-adjustable stand and later decides they want to use a VESA mount adapter, they can book a service appointment with an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider and have one installed, according to internal documentation obtained by MacRumors.
Likewise, if a customer bought a Studio Display with a tilt-adjustable stand and later decides they want both a tilt- and height-adjustable stand, an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider can accommodate this request. Pricing will vary based on the region, the type of stand or mount being installed, and the cost of labor.
The standalone stands and VESA mount upgrade kits are only available to certified technicians and are not sold through Apple's online store.
Studio Display orders began arriving to customers last week. Key features of the display include a 27-inch screen size, 5K resolution, a 12-megapixel Ultra Wide camera with Center Stage, a six-speaker sound system with Spatial Audio, one Thunderbolt 3 port, and three USB-C ports. Pricing starts at $1,599 in the United States for a model with standard glass and a tilt-adjustable stand, with several upgrade options available.

Am I serious? Maybe.
That really goes out the window with a third party random stand.
It just pisses me off that with a bog standard 60hz 5k panel that's essentially unchanged from 2014 (save for a few more nits) -- at $1600 --- they couldn't just make the adjustable height stand the default.
It's just infuriating money grab behavior..
Or adjust the height by stacking up your Apple boxes!
