I really like to give you good news when I can, but sometimes it’s my job to tell you things you don’t want to hear for one reason or another. Today is one of those days.

I’m writing this to confirm that the redesigned M2 MacBook Air will come with a notch, and it will be white unless Apple manages to change all the units that are already manufactured, something I doubt will happen.

Last week I received a picture of the M2 MacBook Air, and it does have a white notch, basically confirming what we already told you that could happen a month ago.

I’m not sure why Apple has decided to do it, I personally think it doesn’t look very nice, but that’s subjective.

I assume people will like it; after all, it’s Apple we are talking about, its marketing team could sell sand to someone in the Sahara.

My source asked me not to post that picture, so I have to respect that. There are dozens of renders and concepts depicting a MacBook Air with a white notch, so I didn’t bother making new ones; they are very similar to the real thing; it’s identical to the MacBook Pro notch, but white.

I assume this is a move to differentiate the “cheap” from the “expensive” MacBooks, a strategy I told you about months ago.

Thanks to this approach, the display will grow from 13.3 to 13.6 inches. You can expect the bezels to be smaller as well.

The new M2 MacBook Air is currently scheduled to be released at some point in September.

And since many people asked, no, there won’t be Face ID on any MacBooks for a few years. Sorry to be that guy, but I had to say it.

Let me know what you think about this in the comments below. I hope you found this article helpful. As always, have a fantastic day.
