Today, Apple officially launches its all-new Studio Display and Mac Studio. If you were fortunate enough to pre-purchase in time for launch day delivery, your order should arrive today.
However, if you missed the limited window of launch day availability, you may have to wait a long time to get a Mac Studio or Studio Display.
As of Friday morning, Apple’s new Studio Display is back-ordered until at least April. The $1,599 entry-level model with standard glass and tilt-adjustable stand is now estimating an April 11–April 19 delivery date.
The variant with regular glass and the tilt-and-height-adjustable stand or the VESA mount is currently backordered until May 16–May 31.
Meanwhile, the Studio Display’s nano-texture version is backordered until May 16 and May 31, regardless of the stand or mounting option selected.
In terms of in-store availability, the Studio Display is available for same-day in-store pickup in the majority of configurations, although availability is inconsistent.
You’ll need to verify availability in your area using the Apple Store app or Apple Store Online.
Meanwhile, the Mac Studio is experiencing similar shipment difficulties.
The machine’s entry-level version is now giving delivery dates between April 11 and April 18, while the machine equipped with the M1 Ultra is quoting delivery dates between May 2 and May 9.
Shipping timelines for your Mac Studio will also vary depending on the configuration you pick, with some higher-end machines being delayed until June. In terms of in-store availability, this is another situation where mileage may vary depending on your region.
Finally, 9to5Mac has heard from many Mac Studio purchasers who have had their shipment timeframes extended beyond the initial estimates provided by Apple. It’s evident that Apple is experiencing manufacturing delays with Mac Studio, but it’s unclear if this is due to supply chain constraints or excessive demand.
