Apple says it will fix Studio Display camera issues with software update


Apple’s Studio Display has received mixed reception from tech YouTubers, bloggers and journalists, with many citing its built-in webcam as lackluster.

Although it features the same 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera as the latest iPad Air, early reviews indicate that the shooter is grainy and poorly suited to adverse lighting conditions. Some go so far as to say that “Center Stage,” Apple’s technology that tracks the subject within the camera’s frame, doesn’t work at all. In my experience, I found the Studio Display’s built-in camera to be pretty good as long as I wasn’t using FaceTime, which is odd considering it’s a video chat platform Apple.

In fact, I found the quality to be close to that of the 14-inch MacBook Pro’s excellent built-in webcam. Overall, I found the 5K Studio Display to be a decent monitor, although I was disappointed that it didn’t support a 120Hz refresh rate at lower resolutions.

Following these reports, an Apple spokesperson told several publications that they are working on a fix and have “identified some issues where the Studio Display is not delivering the expected image quality, and they will be making improvements in future software updates”.
