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. Apple’s 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 Apple’s most popular pro notebook, taken to a whole new level.
8-core CPU We’re on a power chip.
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 generation2 — all with unbelievable energy efficiency.
Creates beauty like a beast.
The 8-core GPU in M1 is the most advanced graphics processor we’ve ever built. Period. And it brings the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer,7 delivering a ridiculous 5x boost in graphics horsepower.
Up to 5X faster graphics performance8
16-core Neural Engine. Smarts, meet speed. Machine learning (ML) brings task‑smashing speed and automation to video analysis, voice recognition, image processing, and more. And the M1 chip with a 16‑core Neural Engine and full stack of technologies takes ML performance on MacBook Pro into the stratosphere.16-core neural EngineUp to11Xfaster ML performance14
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
The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur work together to make the entire system snappier. MacBook Pro 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 favorite iPhone and iPad apps directly on macOS Big Sur. Altogether you’ll have access to the biggest collection of apps ever for Mac.
Active cooling sustains blazing-fast performance.
All-day battery life
Up to 20 hours of battery life — the longest in any Mac ever.15
Runs a tight chip. 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.
The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur give MacBook Pro advanced security and privacy features beyond anything in its class, helping to keep your system and your data protected.
Secure Enclave coprocessorProvides a silicon‑level foundation for critical security features like Touch ID and Apple Pay — and with M1, it’s faster than ever.
Dedicated AES storage encryption engineKeeps encryption keys safe while delivering incredible performance for encrypted storage and data protection.
Secure boot and runtime security featuresEnsures that only trusted Apple software loads at startup and helps protect macOS while running.
Activation LockHelps keep your Mac secure if it’s ever lost, stolen, or misplaced, and can improve your chances of recovering it.
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 color 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 color 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.
More shortcuts to success. Enjoy even more shortcuts and features — like your favorite emoji, preferred languages, and quicker access to Siri.
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 reenter 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.
Charges, chats, streams, works, and plays well
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.
