What you need to know
- Kensington has announced a new privacy screen designed for the latest MacBook Pro notebooks.
- Nobody is saying when the new screen will be available and no pricing has been released as yet.
- The new privacy screen has a space cut out where the notch lives.
Accessory maker Kensington has chosen CES 2022 to announce that it is releasing a new privacy screen that's designed specifically for the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro notebooks. That means that they'll have an area cut out at the top, just ready to welcome that notch.
While Kensington isn't saying when the new privacy screen will be made available, nor how much it will cost, we do at least have some information. The screen will attach to the MacBook Pro's display via magnets while narrowing the field of view to +/- 30 degrees. A blue light filter is also part of the mix, too.
The best Mac is one that nobody can snoop on and Kensington's new privacy screen will undoubtedly help out there. Now we just need to know when this thing will be available for people to buy. You can read more about the screen and the rest of Kensington's CES announcements in its press release now.
