While we wait for repair website iFixit to finish its teardown of Apple's new Studio Display, MacRumors is able to provide a first look at the display's internal design with an image sourced from Apple's documentation for technicians.

Three large boards are visible inside the Studio Display. The left and top-right boards are for power supply and the bottom-right one is the logic board housing components like the A13 Bionic chip and 64GB of flash storage. Last week, it was discovered that the Studio Display runs the same build of iOS 15.4 as an iPhone.

The image reveals that the Studio Display is also equipped with two internal fans on the left and right sides for cooling the display.

Apple says the Studio Display features a high-fidelity six-speaker sound system, and at least four of those speakers are visible in the bottom corners of the display. The speakers appear to have a similar design as those in the 24-inch iMac.

There are also flex cables visible for connecting the display panel and the 12-megapixel Ultra Wide camera system to the logic board.

iFixit said its Studio Display teardown is in progress, so we should have a more comprehensive look inside the display soon.

So they updated the iPad Air to an M1 - which could theoretically run Mac OS

This has the processing power of a previous iteration iPad, but could have easily taken an M1, and ran Mac OS.

Instead, you get a below par monitor. Ouch.

Wonder if Apple might unlock some more capabilities of this monitor in future. Wouldn't be the first time an iOS device was shipped with limited features that later opened up. A guy can dream...
Although I would like to see that too, it's extremely unlikely. With the unused radio module in the iPod Touch 3rd gen, the temperature sensor in the HomePod mini, it's like Apples Schroedingers Cat: it exists, but at the same time it doesn't exist for Apple...

A 60Hz non-HDR display with not one, but two fans. Huh…

I wonder if they're there just so people can't complain if the display somehow overheats in the future.

macOS already has support for A series iPad chips.

Remember, the first available Mac mini in the wild runs off A12Z.
