A lucky Apple customer appears to have received the redesigned MacBook Air with an M2 chip a full day earlier than orders are scheduled to arrive.

The customer, Reddit user br3scia, shared a handful of images of the new MacBook Air to image sharing site Imgur.

The MacBook Air in question is a silver model. The images show off various angles of the device, as well as the packaging and contents of the box that it ships in.

This isn't the first time that an Apple customer has received a preorder earlier than expected. Back in 2021, some customers received their AirTag orders a full two days early. Years earlier, one customer got her hands on an iPhone 6s days before the launch was supposed to happen.
