Boot Camp Update Adds Studio Display Support

Apple has released an update for Boot Camp, adding support for the recently-released Studio Display. Boot Camp allows users to run Windows on Intel-based Macs.

Boot Camp Update 6.1.17, released to the public last week, adds support for the Studio Display and provides updated drivers for AMD and Intel GPUs. To update to the latest Boot Camp drivers, navigate to the Start menu in Windows and open the Apple Software Update app.

As noted by MacRumors, when connected to a Windows system, the Studio Display’s Center Stage, True Tone, and Spatial Audio functionality will be unavailable, as will any features that require firmware updates. Users will find that the Studio Display’s webcam, speakers, and USB-C ports will continue to work. However, much like the Pro Display XDR, the Studio Display works best with macOS.

Macs powered by ‚ÄĆApple Silicon do not officially support Windows and there is no Boot Camp feature like there is on Intel Macs. Microsoft has not yet agreed to provide a version of Windows 11 to work with Apple’s M1-powered Macs, which are built on ARM architecture, likely due to an exclusivity deal with Qualcomm.
