Apple releases sixth Studio Display 17 firmware beta

If Apple does indeed announced new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros at Monday’s “Scary Fast” event, I’d love to see an “Studio Display Pro” unveiled along with them

Apple has posted a sixth Studio Display 17 firmware beta 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.
