Apple on Monday released a new 15.5 firmware for the Studio Display. The update is designed to improve the performance of the webcam.
This firmware update can be performed by connecting the display to a Mac running macOS Monterey 12.4. After installing the macOS 12.4 update, Studio Display owners can go to System Preferences -> Software Update to install the firmware.
The firmware update should address complaints about the quality of the Studio Display’s built-in webcam.
The Studio Display boasts a 12-megapixel Ultra-Wide camera that supports Center Stage. However, owners and reviewers of the new display have complained that the camera produces grainy, washed-out images. Apple says the issue is the result of an issue causing the system to not behave as expected.
Apple’s release notes say the firmware refines camera tuning, offering improved noise reduction, contrast, and framing.
