All Studio Display models are able to receive over-the-air firmware updates, but this firmware update is limited to Macs that are running the new macOS Sonoma operating system at the current time. ‌macOS Sonoma‌ is also being beta tested.

Studio Display owners running ‌macOS Sonoma‌ can go to System Settings > Software Update to install the firmware.

Apple has not provided details on what's included in the firmware update and no new features were found by those running the betas. Release notes and full launch information will be available when the new Studio Display update comes out this fall alongside ‌macOS Sonoma‌.

meanwhile my LG 32 inch 4 K monitor...just seems not not need updates... BECAUSE IT IS A MONITOR! the studio display is an over engineered, over priced and unnecessary piece of electronics.
Wrong! Studio Display has a much better quality build than your average run on the mill monitor.

Can we have all the betas in one article instead of making a separate article for every beta?

Ah but it is so gorgeous. Seriously. I love mine.

I'd love it even more if it had HDMI input but I knew what I was getting when I bought it. And after 18 months, I still love it.

I don't understand what the point of these betas is when they don't even want to tell us what has been changed nor what to test.
