Apple’s new Studio Studio display looks a lot like a refurbished iMac, but once it opens, it’s a lot more complicated. The monitor is almost 50 percent thicker than the company’s all-in-one table, and there is good reason for that. Following on its release of Studio Mac, iFixit released the company Display to unlock what went into Apple’s first dedicated monitor from the XDR Pro Show. The compact, multi-vehicle power supply integrated between the monitor makes the processor display thicker than the iMac. Unlike the iMac, Display Studio does not require an adapter to operate. It is one of those characteristics that, on the surface, appears to be irrelevant.
“If [Apple] goes with external power supply, this could be the same design as the iMac, ”said iFixit. It is noteworthy that Apple made a significant investment of technological innovation and cost to design a slim power supply as seen in the Display Studio.
Moving apart from Display Studio, iFixit also discovered tidbits that are a little more interesting about the monitor. Almost every review of Display Studio has complained of poor webcam quality. Apple has said it will release a software update to address the issue. Initially, iFixit said that the Studio Display camera module looks similar to the one found in the iPhone 11. “Smart hardware, three-year-old sensor is capable of compiling the best punch of all these observers, ”The company said. That is something to keep in mind if you are thinking about buying the Studio Show.
