Apple has unveiled a new external monitor that is much cheaper Pro Display XDR and includes numerous features. The Apple Studio Display starts at US$1,599 and is already available to order. All models come with a 5K native resolution, an A13 Bionic chipset and six speakers.

Apple has revealed the Studio Display at today's 'Peek Performance' event alongside the Mac Studio, the M1 Ultra, the iPhone SE 5G and the iPad Air 5. As expected, the Apple Studio is a 27-inch external monitor that is much cheaper than the Pro Display XDR. Still, the Studio Display starts at US$1,599, making it much more expensive than most external monitors.

The Apple Studio Display lacks a high refresh rate panel or mini LED backlights too. However, it offers a 5,120 x 2,880-pixel native resolution in a 16:9 aspect ratio, along with 600 nits of peak brightness and full DCI-P3 colour space coverage. Apple has included its True Tone technology as well, plus a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle camera with a 122° field of view and Center Stage. Apparently, the camera sensor comes from the iPad Pro series.

By default, Apple will sell the Studio Display with two glass types: Standard glass and Nano-texture glass. While both are anti-reflective, Apple states its Standard glass option 'extremely low reflectivity'. By contrast, its Nano-texture glass delivers 'scatters light' to minimise glare without needing a matte coating. Additionally, the Studio Display comes with three stand options, including one with tilt- and height adjustments. Alternatively, you can opt for a VESA mount adapter that costs as much as the standard tilt-adjustable stand.

Separately, the Studio Display has four USB Type-C ports, with one offering Thunderbolt 3 support. Furthermore, the Studio Display has six speakers, three microphones and an A13 Bionic SoC for processing footage from the monitor's webcam. Also, the SoC handles 'Hey Siri' voice commands and Spatial Audio, Apple's virtual surround sound technology.

The Apple Studio Display is available to order now in all configurations. Pre-orders should start shipping on March 18 in multiple markets, including the US.
