According to Apple’s release notes, the firmware improves camera tuning, providing improved noise reduction, contrast, and framing. We tested the firmware update when it was in beta, and there is a distinct difference in camera quality, especially in terms of the way the frames work.

In addition to better frames, the colors are not completely faded, the contrast has been improved, and the overall appearance is more vivid. Skin tones are better than before, and there’s less noise removal for more clarity, but in the end Studio Display owners shouldn’t expect drastic changes.
