The Studio Display has a new firmware update available, but it isn’t clear if it addresses the known speaker fault.
Owners of the Studio Display can get the firmware version 15.5 by navigating to System Preferences on their connected Mac. Select “Software Update” to check if the update is available.
The update was released by Apple only three days after the company acknowledged a speaker fault in the Studio Display. Users were reporting issues of sound failing intermittently, and Apple called it a software problem.
Apple offered a workaround to temporarily fix the problem by cycling the display’s power. Since there isn’t a power button, that means users need to unplug the monitor then plug it back in.
The Studio Display has an A13 Bionic processor, and it seems to run a variation of iOS. Firmware version 15.5 has a build number 19F80, which is only a few digits higher than the iOS 15.5 build of 19F77.
Apple hasn’t stated if this update fixes the speaker fault, so users who previously experienced the fault will have to wait and see if it again. Otherwise, the update may focus on other minor bug fixes and performance improvements.
