Apple MacBook Air's display is now brighter, thanks to macOS 10.14.4 update

19 April 2019 2

The new macOS 10.14.4 update has made the display of the MacBook Air brighter and Apple has even reflected this change in the specifications sheet of the 2018 MacBook Air. Previously, the display brightness was up to 300 nits but now it has been increased to 400 nits.

MacRumors has confirmed this change with Apple that this increase is tied to the macOS 10.14.4 software update released on March 25. Apple’s release notes also mention that the update “corrects the default screen brightness” for 2018 MacBook Air models, although no specific details were known at the time.

This is indeed a significant increase in the brightness and the change is getting praises as brightness was one of the main issues with the Air’s new Retina display.

Here a reader on MacRumors has shared the GIF that shows the brightness change after the update on the MacBook Air -
