Apple Will Release a Software Update For Studio Display’s Poor Quality Webcam
The reviews for Apple's Mac Studio and Studio Display are now out and both devices have been received pretty well. If you ordered the new Studio Display, you should note that the webcam of the display features below-average quality compared to the competition. Now, Apple has stated that it will release an update for the Studio Display to fix the poor quality webcam. Scroll down to read more details on the subject.
Following Reports of Poor Webcam Quality on the Studio Display, Apple Will Release a Software Update to Fix the Issue
Apple's new Studio Display features a 12MP Ultra-Wide camera which also supports the new Center Stage feature for Zoom and FaceTime calls. While we are glad that Apple saw fit to equip the display with a camera, unlike the Pro Display XDR, the quality of the webcam is not so good. Henceforth, Apple will issue an update soon that will address the quality concerns. The Wall Street Journal's Joanna Stern wrote:
You can understand why I anticipated that the Studio Display's webcam would be the GOAT (Greatest of All Time). With a 12-megapixel camera and the A13 Bionic chip, it should be on par with the front-facing camera of an iPhone 11 Pro.
Yet Apple's camera consistently produced grainy and washed-out images. There was so much missing detail in some of the shots that it reminded me of the camera on my old BlackBerry. On the plus side: No one could see my frizzy hair.
