Apple’s thinnest, lightest notebook, completely transformed by the Apple M1 chip. CPU speeds up to 3.5x faster. GPU speeds up to 5x faster. Apple’s most advanced Neural Engine for up to 9x faster machine learning. The longest battery life ever in a MacBook Air. And a silent, fanless design. This much power has never been this ready to go.
Supercharged by the Apple M1 chip
It’s here. Apple’s first chip designed specifically for Mac. Packed with an astonishing 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 system on a chip (SoC) integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O and so much more onto a single tiny chip. With incredible performance, custom technologies and industry-leading power efficiency,¹ M1 is not just a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.
Images take on new levels of detail and realism on the brilliant 13.3-inch, 2560×1600-resolution Retina display.⁸ Text is sharp and clear. Colours are more vibrant than ever. And the glass goes right to the edge of the enclosure, so nothing takes away from your gorgeous view.
Camera and mics.
The image signal processor in the M1 chip helps you look your best for every FaceTime call and video conference. Three built-in microphonesmake sure what you say gets heard whether you’re on a call, dictating a note or asking Siri about the weather.
When a keyboard types like a dream and still does a whole lot more: that’s magic. With new pre-programmed shortcuts, useful features are even easier to access. Get help from Siri, switch keyboard languages, respond with the perfect emoji, find documents with Spotlight — there’s so much you can do with just a tap. And the backlit keys with ambient light sensor help you type in low-light settings.
