Product information

Small Chip, Giant Leap

It is here. Their 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 is another level entirely.

8 Core CPU Devours Tasks, Sips Battery

M1 has the fast CPU. With that kind of processing speed,MacBook Air can take on extraordinarily intensive tasks like professional quality editing and action packed gaming. But the 8 core CPU on M1 is not just up to 3.5x faster than the previous generation, it balances high performance cores with efficiency cores that can still crush everyday jobs while using just a tenth of the power.

Machine Learning

Up to 9x faster. 14 Even for a 16 core Neural Engine, that is a lot too process. Apps on MacBook Air can use machine learning (ML) to automatically retouch photos like a pro, make smart tools such as magic wands and audio filters more accurate at auto detection and so much more. That is not just brain power, that is the power of a full stack of ML technologies.

Unified Memory

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.

Lifelike Colours for Unreal Beauty

Images take on new levels of detail and realism on the brilliant 13.3 inch,2560 by 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.

True Tone Technology

Good looking. And easy on the eyes. MacBook Air automatically adjusts the white point of your display to the colour temperature of your environment for a more natural viewing experience.

You are Live on The Air

The image signal processor in the M1 chip helps you look your best for every FaceTime call and video conference. Three built in microphones make sure what you say gets heard whether you are on a call, dictating a note or asking Siri about the weather.

FaceTime HD Camera

Get clearer, sharper images. See more detail in shadows and highlights. And face detection uses the Neural Engine to adjust white balance and exposure for even more natural looking skin tones.

Go Ahead, Take The Keys

When a keyboard types like a dream and still does a whole lot more, that is magic. With new preprogrammed shortcuts ,useful features are even easier to access. Get help from Siri, switch keyboard languages, respond with the perfect emoji, find documents with Spotlight as there is so much you can do with just a tap. And the backlit keys with ambient light sensor help you type in low light settings.

Touch ID

One touch is all it takes to lock or unlock MacBook Air. Use your fingerprint to rent a movie, buy an app or access things like secure documents or system settings without having to reenter your password. And when you shop online with Apple Pay, Touch ID fills in your shipping and billing information without sharing your card details.

WiFi 6

The next generation of WiFi is not 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.
