Apple has released a new beta firmware version for the Studio Display, the company's new external display.
Today, the company is rolling out a new beta firmware update to the Studio Display with Studio Display 15.5 Beta 2. The update came as an additional part of the fourth developer beta of macOS Monterey 12.4, which Apple also seeded to developers earlier today.
