The rumors of the infamous iPhone notch moving over to the MacBook Pro line could just be the start, with a leaker claiming the 2022 MacBook Air could use the same design concept.
On Saturday, a leak from Chinese social media suggested there will be some form of cut-out in the display of the MacBook Pro refresh, set to be unveiled on Monday. In follow-up research, it seems the MacBook Air could undergo the same transformation.
The forum post, dating back to August and uncovered by MacRumors, has leaker “Ty98” mentioning the next major update to the MacBook Air line would use the same purported notch motif as the MacBook Pro.
In the same post, the leaker mentions how the MacBook Air’s design will be improved by Apple toning down or removing the wedge body design. Instead, the poster insists the model will have a “very round and light” design.
Current rumors has the MacBook Air scheduled to arrive in 2022, rather than in late 2021. The model is expected to have a 13.3-inch mini LED-backlit display, which will improve contrast ratios, produce deeper dark tones, and higher peak brightness levels in an image.
Other claims include a change in design to make it closer in appearance to the MacBook Pro range, and the use of colors on the enclosure.

Gross, no thanks 

The odd thing is, the top centre of a macOS computer is always empty because the “Menu Bar” is always blank in that area. So people who use the menu bar (which is most of us) wouldn’t really mind if there was a notch in that area. I suppose Windows computers would need to put the notch in the bottom of the screen since that’s where the Windows “Task Bar” usually is.

But the Mac have a huge forehead so you cant even notice the notch, muck like the ipad pro….

If the iPad doesn’t need one, the Mac won’t either.
