The Apple 13" MacBook Air features Apple's first chip designed specifically for Mac. The Apple M1 integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and more into a single system on a chip (SoC). Tackle your projects with the fast 8-Core CPU and take on graphics-intensive apps and games with the 8-core GPU. Accelerate machine learning tasks with the 16-core Neural Engine. Complete with a silent, fanless design and up to 18 hours of battery life, the MacBook Air is still portable, but now a lot more powerful. It also has 16GB of unified RAM and a 512GB SSD.

With over 4 million pixels, the 13.3" Retina Display features a 2560 x 1600 screen resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio for 227 pixels per inch (ppi). The display also features up to 48 percent more color than the previous generation. With True Tone technology, the white balance automatically adjusts to match the color temperature of the light around you for a more natural viewing experience.

Connect to the internet via Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and use compatible wireless peripherals and accessories with Bluetooth 5.0. The two Thunderbolt 3 ports provide USB4 support and can even connect to the Apple Pro Display XDR in full 6K resolution. Apple also included studio-quality mics for clear recordings and calls. There is also Apple's latest camera ISP in the M1 chip, which enables sharper images and more details in shadows and highlights in video calls. Keep your MacBook Air secure with Secure Enclave in M1 as well as Touch ID. The backlit Magic Keyboard provides a comfortable typing experience, and the Force Touch trackpad allows for precise cursor control, pressure-sensing capabilities, and Multi-Touch gestures.

Please note that this MacBook Air can only output to a single external display with up to 6K resolution at 60 Hz.

This Mac comes preloaded with macOS. Updates can be downloaded for free via the Mac App Store. Please check Apple's website for upgrade eligibility.

Apple M1 Chip

Packed with 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and more into a single system on a chip (SoC). Built with 5nm process technology, the Apple M1 delivers the performance you need without sacrificing power efficiency. The Apple M1 features four high-performance cores, each designed to run a single task, which allows for multithreaded workloads. There are also four efficiency cores to handle lighter workloads, using only a tenth of the power while still delivering fast performance. This means the Apple M1 performs up to 3.5 times faster than the previous generation while still delivering battery life up to 15 hours of wireless web browsing and up to 18 hours of video playback.

13.3" Retina IPS Display

With four times as many pixels as an HD display, the 13.3" Retina IPS Display provides up to 48 percent more color than the previous generation. The Retina Display has a 2560 x 1600 screen resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio for 227 pixels per inch (ppi). The display glass goes right to the edge of the screen, making the bezels 50 percent thinner than before. Moreover, True Tone technology automatically adjusts the white balance to match the color temperature of the surrounding light.

True Tone Technology

With True Tone technology, the display delivers a more natural viewing experience for design and editing workflows, as well as everyday tasks like browsing the web and writing email.

Touch ID

The advanced security and convenience of Touch ID is built into the MacBook Air. Simply place your finger on the integrated Touch ID sensor and your MacBook Air unlocks. Use your fingerprint to immediately access locked documents, notes, and system settings. You can also use Apple Pay securely during checkout while online shopping. No need to enter shipping or billing info, and your card details are never shared.

Magic Keyboard

The Magic Keyboard on this MacBook Air features a scissor mechanism that delivers 1mm of key travel. There's also a physical Esc key and an inverted "T" arrangement for the arrow keys. Combined with the Touch ID, the Magic Keyboard provides a comfortable, accurate typing experience.

Thunderbolt 3 with USB4 Support

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also supports USB4, allowing you to connect to more peripherals, including the Apple Pro Display XDR in full 6K resolution.

Software Features

When compared to the previous generation, the M1-powered MacBook Air can:
  • Export a project for the web with iMovie up to 3x faster
  • Integrate 3D effects into video in Final Cut Pro up to 5x faster
  • For the first time, play back and edit multiple streams of full-quality, 4K ProRes video in Final Cut Pro without dropping a frame
  • Export photos from Lightroom up to twice as fast
  • Use ML-based features like Smart Conform in Final Cut Pro to intelligently frame a clip up to 4.3x faster
  • Watch more movies and TV shows with up to 18 hours of battery life, the longest ever on MacBook Air
  • Extend FaceTime and other video calls for up to twice as long on a single charge
  • Future updates are coming to Adobe apps

    When my 5 year old MacBook Air ran out of storage, it was time to replace with another MacBook Air with double the storage. I am completely sold on apple products and this is no exception. Faster, clearer, responsive, intuitive. I'm in love!

    The Apple MacBook Air is great for students. It's a thin and light laptop that's easy to carry around, with a battery that lasts through an entire day of light productivity. It has a good keyboard, an excellent touchpad, and a bright, sharp screen. Its M1 SoC is powerful enough to handle most student workloads, and it's completely silent thanks to its fanless design. It only has two USB-C ports, though, so you'll likely need to carry dongles.

    We bought this and upgraded memory, chip to an 8-core, and storage. Essentially spec'd to an MB pro at $400 lower price. Works great and will serve our college freshman for the next few years. She loves the color too.

    This macbook Air is everything I hoped it would be. It's super fast, the battery life is insane, and the display is super crisp. I was planning on using this laptop mostly when hooked to a 4k desktop monitor. But after a couple weeks of use, I now realize that the small 13 inch retina display isn't as hard on the eyes as I feared. It's perfectly fine when working 1-2 hours at a time.

    Is the RAM not upgradeable because it is a custom build? Or are all apple computers that way?
    Asked by: Mackenzie
    All Apple laptops do not have upgradeable RAM since the introduction of the Macbook Pro Retina in 2012. With M1, all of them are SOC so they do not have upgradeable RAM.

    What is the speed of this MacBook
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Apple does not specify frequency for the CPU or the GPU on the M1 Chip. Third party research clocks it in at up to 3.2Ghz Max clock speeds but we could not verify this information. What I can tell you is that it is the fastest CPU on any Mac that Apple has ever shipped.
