Apple held an online event on March 8, 2022, to introduce a new product lineup.

Mac Studio has four Thunderbolt 4 connections on the rear for connecting displays and high-performance peripherals. A 10Gb Ethernet port, two USB-A ports, an HDMI connector, and a pro audio jack for high-impedance headphones or external amplified speakers.

On the front, two USB-C ports support 10Gb/s USB 3 on the M1 Max and 40Gb/s Thunderbolt 4 on the M1 Ultra. There’s also an SD card slot for quickly importing photographs and videos on the front.
