Apple’s new 5K Studio Display supports the 11-inch iPad Pro, 12.9-inch iPad Pro (3rd generation or later), and the new 5th generation iPad Air, but it’s not officially compatible with the new iPad Air 4th generation or new iPad mini because USB-C ports on these devices cannot achieve the data transfer speed required for output in native resolution.

This has led some users to wonder what, if anything, happens when a fourth-generation iPad Air or iPad mini 6 is connected to a Studio Display. Apple has now confirmed to Mac rumors That these two devices come out to a screen that supports 5K with a resolution of 1440 pixels in miniature. Suffice to say, other unsupported older iPads with USB-C aren’t capable of running Studio Display in 5K either.

Apple’s new Studio Display is compatible with a range of Macs that can output native 5K resolution, including the following:

  • Mac studio (2022)
  • MacBook Pro 16-inch (2019 or later)
  • 14-inch MacBook Pro (2021)
  • 13-inch MacBook Pro (2016 or later)
  • 15-inch MacBook Pro (2016 or later)
  • MacBook Air (2018 or later)
  • Mac mini (2018 or later)
  • Mac Pro (2019 or later)
  • iMac 24″ (2021)
  • iMac 27-inch (2017 or later)
  • iMac 21.5-inch (2017 or later)
  • iMac Pro (2017)

Customers can order the studio view starting from the online Apple Store, with availability starting March 18, although delivery dates for both the new Mac Studio and its accompanying studio monitor are starting to look good in April.

In the US, a studio monitor is $1,599 with a tilt stand and $1,999 with a tilt and height stand. The display can also be configured with nano-touch glass and/or a VESA-compliant mounting adapter.
