An Apple spokesperson has confirmed in a statement to The Verge that “an update to the Studio Display firmware is now available with today’s beta release of macOS Monterey 12.4,” which fixes the Studio Display’s camera quality issues.
“This beta update has refinements to the Studio Display camera tuning, including improved noise reduction, contrast, and framing,” added Apple spokesperson Jennie Orphanopoulos. While the developers are able to install the Monterey 12.4 beta now, it will be able for others to install from Apple’s public beta program later today.
Once you have installed the developer or public beta, you can update your display by going to System Preferences > Software Update. After installing Studio Display Firmware Version 15.5 (Build 19F5062g), you should see the results of Apple’s latest webcam tweaks.
