It is officially March 18 in Australia and New Zealand, which means that it’s Mac Studio and Studio Display launch day. Customers in these countries are always the first to get their hands on new devices, and Apple’s new studio devices are being delivered.
The Mac Studio and Studio Display are starting to arrive to customers who pre-ordered when the devices went up for sale following the “Peek Performance” event, and customers will soon begin to share their photos on Twitter, Instagram, and the MacRumors forums.
New Zealand does not have Apple Stores, so Australian customers will be the first who are able to pick up a Studio Display or Mac Studio at a retail location, provided Apple has stock. Availability in Australia will give us an idea of what we can expect from other stores worldwide.
Apple will likely sell stock configurations of the Studio Display and the Mac Studio at its retail stores, with pricing beginning at $1,599 for the Studio Display and $1,999 for the Mac Studio. Supplies of both devices were limited on ordering day, so retail stores may also have limited quantities.
If you try to order a Mac Studio or Studio Display online, the order won’t ship until April, so a retail store is now the only way to get a launch day device.
Following New Zealand and Australia, sales of the MacBook Pro will begin in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and then North America. Apple Stores globally are opening up right around 9:00 or 10:00 a.m. local time to allow customers to pick up reserved devices and make walk-in purchases.
