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.

What this monitor needs is a better webcam, and it's clear by now that no software update can provide that.

Friendly reminder that monitor updates HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A THING. The end user just didn't know it because it took place in the factory vs the home. Monitor updates coming via update prompts in the OS have been around since I owned Apple monitors back in 2010 and other manufacturers offer firmware updates from their websites.

What? It's not ten grand at all and OLED isn't something you see on every display out there.

I've had mine for just over a year and I've had no problems with it. My favorite apple device of all time. Hopefully it lasts another 9.
My experience as well. I now have three. Great device. Works perfectly. Nothing to mess with.

Does anybody knows if the XDR display requires firmware updates? I love dumb displays, no speakers/no webcam. My ACD 30" still a workhorse after 18 years of heavy use.
