MacBook Pro

 


All Systems Pro.

The Apple M1 chip gives the 13‑inch MacBook Pro speed and power beyond belief. With up to 2.8x CPU performance. Up to 5x the graphics speed. Our most advanced Neural Engine for up to 11x faster machine learning. And up to 20 hours of battery life — the longest of any Mac ever. It’s our most popular pro notebook, taken to a whole new level.


                                      M1 Chip


Small chip. Giant leap.

It’s here. Our 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,M1 is not just a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.


 

 

8-core CPU 

We're on a power chip

 

The 8-core CPU in M1 is the highest-performing CPU we’ve ever built, by far. The M1 chip makes MacBook Pro outrageously fast and powerful. Its 8‑core CPU rips through complex workflows and heavy workloads, with up to 2.8x faster processing performance than the previous generation,— all with unbelievable energy efficiency.

 

 


 

All-day battery life

 

Up to 20 hours of battery life. That’s 6 more hours, free of charge.


Testing conducted by Apple in October 2020 using pre-production 13-inch MacBook Pro systems with Apple M1 chip, 8GB of RAM and 512GB SSD.  Battery life varies by use and configuration.

 

 

Thermal efficiency

No fan.

No noise.
Just Air.

 
 

Active cooling sustains blazing-fast performance.

Machine learning

 

Up to 11x faster. Machine learning (ML) brings task‑smashing speed and automation to video analysis, voice recognition, image processing and more. And the M1 chip with 16‑core Neural Engine and full stack of technologies takes ML performance on MacBook Pro into the stratosphere.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Testing conducted by Apple in October 2020 using pre-production 13-inch MacBook Pro systems with Apple M1 chip, as well as production 1.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i7–based 13-inch MacBook Pro systems, all configured with 16GB RAM and 2TB SSD. Performance tests are conducted using specific computer systems and reflect the approximate performance of MacBook Pro.

 

 

 

 

macOS Big Sur


The power of macOS Big Sur on M1.

 

Developed to unlock the potential of the M1 chip, macOS Big Sur transforms Mac with major performance benefits and so much more. Powerful updates for apps. A beautiful new design. Industry-leading privacy features and best‑in‑class security. It’s our most powerful software ever — running on our most advanced hardware yet.

 






Speed and responsiveness

 More power.Wakes instantly.

 

The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur work together to make the entire system snappier. MacBook Air wakes instantly from sleep. Everyday tasks from flipping through photos to browsing Safari are faster. And your hardest‑working apps all have access to the power they need.


 

Biggest collection of apps ever

 

Run powerful apps built for M1. All your existing apps work thanks to Rosetta 2. And for the first time, you can use your favourite iPhone and iPad apps directly on macOS Big Sur. Altogether you’ll have access to the biggest collection of apps ever for Mac.


 

 

Unified memory


 The M1 chip brings up to 16GB of superfast unified memory. This single pool of high‑bandwidth, low‑latency memory allows apps to share data between the CPU, GPU and Neural Engine efficiently — so everything you do is fast and fluid.




Retina display

See the better picture.

 

 

With the brilliant Retina display, images take on an incredible level of detail and realism. Text is sharp and clear. Bright LED backlighting delivers deep blacks and bright whites. P3 wide colour brings even more vibrant greens and reds than sRGB. And every MacBook Pro features True Tone technology, so the white balance automatically adjusts to match the colour temperature of the light around you — for a more natural viewing experience.

Camera and mics

Be seen. Be heard.

 

 

Thanks to M1, the FaceTime HD camera can now take full advantage of our latest image signal processor — improving image quality in video conferences and pulling out more details in both shadows and highlights. And whether you’re running a meeting, hosting a podcast or connecting with friends and family, new studio-quality mics will make sure everyone hears you loud and clear.







 

FaceTime HD camera

 

The M1 chip even helps you look your best. Highlights in low light have never looked better. Advanced noise reduction makes dark areas sharper. And face detection uses the Neural Engine to better adjust white balance and exposure levels for even more natural‑looking skin tones.







Three-microphone array

 

Studio quality. Without the studio. An improved signal‑to‑noise ratio rivals that of professional‑grade microphones.

 

 


 

 

Magic Keyboard

Just your type

 

Magic Keyboard lets you do everything faster and more efficiently. The refined scissor mechanism delivers a responsive, comfortable and quiet typing experience. The Touch Bar puts the commands you need most just where you need them, saving time and keystrokes. And Touch ID provides fast, easy authentication for secure logins and purchases.


 



Scissor mechanism


Every keystroke, thought or line of code just feels right.

Touch Bar

 

 More shortcuts to success. Enjoy even more shortcuts and features — like your favourite emoji, preferred languages and quicker access to Siri.

Touch ID


A touch on the sensor instantly unlocks your Mac, and a press locks it. Use your fingerprint to rent movies, buy apps, or access things like locked documents or system settings without having to re-enter your password. And when you shop online with Apple Pay, Touch ID automatically fills in your shipping and billing information without sharing your card details.

Connectivity

Make connections. Faster than ever.

 

Wi‑Fi 6

 

The next generation of Wi‑Fi isn’t just faster — it keeps MacBook Air going strong even as more and more devices join the network.

 

Thunderbolt / USB 4

 

Ultra‑high bandwidth meets ultra‑versatility. Thunderbolt enables data transfer, charging and video output all through a single port — and MacBook Air has two of them.
