It’s been a long time since Apple has released a somewhat affordable monitor for the masses. The Pro Display XDR has been around since December of 2019, but even with its 6K resolution, the accompanying $5,000 is a tough pill to swallow.

When you compare the $6,000 Pro Display XDR price tag to the $1,500 starting price of the Studio Display with a 5K resolution, the price suddenly seems much more palatable. Add in the fact that there just aren’t that many 5K displays on the market, and it becomes obvious at what market Apple is trying to reach.
How to Restart Apple Studio Display
While Apple’s latest monitor looks like it should belong in an art museum, it also functions as an incredible display to pair with your various devices. Thanks to additional features such as the built-in dual speaker setup, along with the built-in webcam, and it might not be a surprise to know that the Studio Display uses the same internals as the iPhone 11, iPhone SE (2nd Gen) and iPad (9th Gen).
But just like any other device that you find yourself using over the course of the day, the Studio Display is bound to run into problems occasionally. However, due to the fact that the power adapter is extremely difficult to remove, you’ll need to know how to safely restart Apple Studio Display.
If you find yourself in that situation, here’s how you can restart Apple Studio Display:
- Unplug your Studio Display from the wall outlet.
- Remove any accessories and/or devices that are connected to the Studio Display.
- Wait for at least 10 seconds and for the screen to go completely black.
- Plug the Studio Display back into the wall outlet.
- Wait for the Studio Display to power on. (You’ll see the Apple logo).
- Reconnect all of your accessories, peripherals, and devices to the Studio Display.
Once your Mac recognizes the connection, we recommend trying to play some type of media in an effort to see if the Apple Studio Display speakers not working still. If you are still running into problems, head down to the next method.
It’s important that all of the connected peripherals and devices are unplugged. Considering that the Studio Display’s Thunderbolt 3 ports also provide power, you don’t want to worry about something catastrophic happening just because you unplugged the power source.
Once the Studio Display is back up and running, you can double-check to see if any of the problems are persisting. Of course, you’ll need to first connect a Mac or other device to test this, but then you shouldn’t need to worry about restating the Studio Display again for a while.
