Studio Display availability
Posted by: Dubya

I've seen a number of articles talking about how availability for the Apple Studio Display is 6 to 10 weeks out. What I haven't seen is a explaination of why.

Mac Studios are now becoming more plentiful, even BTO. The displays are pretty much missing.

I assume the display factory line is down, completely.

Anybody hear anything?

Mac Studios are now becoming more plentiful, even BTO...

Base Mac Studio is available quickly. This is true of many base Mac models.

But not the BTOs.

Looking at the order page, here are some of the estimated delivery dates...

BTO Max with 32 CPU cores: July 20-27th
BTO Max with 64GB RAM: July 20-27th
BTO Max with 1TB SSD: July 20-27th
Base Ultra: August 9th-23rd
BTO Ultra with 64-Core GPU: 10-12 Weeks

Studio Display, tilt-only: August 4-17th.

...But why compare the Mac Studio's ship times with those of the Studio Display? Different products, different supply-chains.

Shortages have been easing at the low-end and mid-range, but high-end display panels are in very short supply right now and this is supposed to continue until at least the end of the year. It's a supply-chain miracle that Apple can ship these things at all.

Actually, a few BTO's came available a few weeks ago. I didn't jump in because the Studio Display wasn't available. Finally, Wednesday I saw the displays available at Costco online and then the next day they were available at B&H. I ordered one and it was here Friday. The Apple store near me still has no stock.

Of course, now the BTO's are scarce again. Their avail time has dropped to 4-6 weeks. Best Buy has had a few, but not the one i'm looking for.

I suspect they'll appear again in a week or so.

Apple promoted them together. They are meant to replace the 27" iMacs (or iMac Pros). That's why it's important to make them both available.

But even Apple can't control everything.
