MacBook Air 2018 - Longer Video Cable?

Now that IFIXIT discovered that the MacBook Pro 2018 has a longer (+2mm) video cable/strap that might eliminate the “Flexgate” problem on the Pro, Does the Macbook Air 2018 have the same longer video cable?

Out of curiosity are you facing a display issue with your system?


No issues with the display, however I leave the laptop open as much as possible to avoid the possible display problem until I know that it won't turn out like many of the "Pro" models with Flexgate.

@tom143 - The MacBook Air’s don’t have this issue at all!

The risk was with the MacBook Pro’s 13” 2016/17 systems opening the lid as that stresses the connection.

Hey Tom,

Im not actually sure, but i’m sure this teardown could answer your problem:

MacBook Air 13" Retina 2018 Teardown

Hope this helps!!

All the best,

Thanks, but the teardown does not analyze the video cable length that may be the issue causing the Flexgate display issue on PRO’s. Per the teardown “The Air bears a remarkable resemblance to the Touch Bar-less 13" MacBook Pro—apart from thickness and Touch ID, they are nigh indistinguishable.”

If its the same as the PRO then maybe us AIR folks have a shot of not having the Flexgate problem.


True the designs have a common heritage between them.

A couple of points:

◆ The 2016/17 MacBook Pro's have the shorter cable, the newer 2018 model has the longer, so its possible the 2018 MacBook Air design was influenced by the 2018 correction.

◆ The problem is we don't have anything to gage the length to, unlike the Pro models. Only Apple would know the real answer here.
