Apple is adding a notch on the display of its new MacBook Pro. It’s a cut-out that will house the camera system, much like how Apple moved to a notch design for its iPhone X launch in 2017. The surprising addition of the notch comes in the new 14-inch MacBook Pro, equipped with Apple’s new M1 Pro silicon inside.
The 14-inch MacBook Pro is completely redesigned, and the bezels have been completely trimmed down thanks to this notch. The bezels at the side are 3.5mm — that’s 24 percent thinner than before — and up top, it’s 60 percent thinner. The macOS menu bar now wraps around the camera, and it seems to look a lot better with dark mode enabled so the notch isn’t as noticeable.
