Apple posts new beta (version 17) of Studio Display Firmware

I’m still hoping that Apple will release a “Studio Display Pro” with ProMotion support this year.

Apple has rolled out a new version (17) of Apple Studio Display Firmware for Apple’s Studio Display. It’s for those running a beta of macOS Sonoma.

Apple has provided no details on what the update includes. To update your Apple Studio Display firmware:

  • Click the Apple () symbol in the menu bar and choose System Preferences….
  • Click Software Update in the preferences panel.
    If you see a firmware update available for your display, click Update Now to start download it.
  • When the update has fully downloaded, click Restart in the notification that appears in the top-right corner of the screen.
  • Don’t unplug the display while the update is in progress.

While the update is being installed, an ellipsis icon may appear or the screen might go blank. Not to worry; that’s normal. Don’t unplug the Apple Studio Display while it’s updating.
