Apple’s thinnest, lightest notebook, completely transformed by the Apple M1 chip. With CPU speeds up to 3.5x faster and 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.
Small chip. Giant leap.
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, M1 is not just a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.
8-core CPU Devours tasks. Sips battery.
M1 has the fastest CPU Apple have ever made. With that kind of processing speed, MacBook Air can take on new extraordinarily intensive tasks like professional-quality editing and action-packed gaming. But the 8‑core CPU on M1 isn‘t just up to 3.5x faster than the previous generation2 — it balances high-performance cores with efficiency cores that can still speed through everyday jobs while using just a tenth of the power.
8-core GPU Plays hard. Works wonders.
The MacBook Air’s 8 – Core GPU gives you up to 5X faster graphics.
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.
The do‑it‑all notebook gets do‑the‑unbelievable memory. The M1 chip brings 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.
STUNNING RETINA DISPLAY
Lifelike colours for unreal beauty.
Images take on new levels of detail and realism on the brilliant 13.3‑inch, 2560×1600-resolution Retina display. 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.
