Intel Mac users who run Windows on their Mac can now update the drivers in Boot Camp to enable support for Apple's Studio Display.

Apple updates Boot Camp periodically to introduce support for new hardware, along with typical compatibility and performance improvements. In a March update of the software, Apple has enabled Boot Camp to work with the new Studio Display.

The update that brings Boot Camp to version 6.1.17, spotted by Reddit, introduces two key elements of support. First, it adds compatibility for the Studio Display, ensuring Intel Mac users running Windows can still use the monitor without any issue.

The update also includes AMD graphics driver updates, changes that will be especially useful for eGPU users.

Boot Camp, Apple's software for running Windows on Mac hardware, is available to use on Intel-based Macs. Apple Silicon Macs can run Windows within a virtual machine in macOS, meaning support for the Studio Display will be available by default so long as macOS is up to date.

While the Studio Display will work on Windows desktops, macOS-specific features like Center Stage for the webcam won't function.
