Apple has “put the batteries” to be able to make the Studio Display, presented on March 8, compatible with computers with a Windows operating system. This screen created for the new Mac Studio also debuted at the Peek Performance event. It has many similarities with the Display Pro but it does not reach its level. For this reason, the price is not so exaggerated either, although it does not fall short, really. Apple wants the more users to be able to use the screen, the better. That’s why with the new version of Boot Camp They want everyone to benefit. However, it is not gold everything that shines.
Apple’s Studio Display has proven to be a screen with exceptional features and certainly seems to have been created for the new Mac Studio presented at the same time as the screen. Last March 8. This Screen can be used without problems on computers with a Windows operating system, but it will not be fully functional. In other words, it is not 100% fully operational. Although there are two pieces of hardware, there are certain functions that are only operative through software.
The new version 6.1.17 makes all possible technical elements compatible. Although, as we said, we must take into account that functions such as the central stage, Spatial Audio and the voice command “Hey, Siri” They only work with if we have macOS. Even though the display achieves a quality of 5K at 60Hz, the resolution and refresh rate may vary depending on the hardware of the computer it is connected to. Also, Apple says that Windows identifies the Apple Studio as any other screen, and the built-in webcam, microphones and speakers also work with the Windows operating system.
In summary. If you have a Windows computer, the best thing is not to attach the Studio Display to the not be 100% operational
