Power. It’s in the Air.
Our thinnest, lightest notebook, completely transformed by the Apple M1 chip. CPU speeds up to 3.5x faster. GPU speeds up to 5x faster. Our 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.
CPU - Small chip. Giant leap.
Supercharged by the Apple M1 chip.
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,1 M1 is not just a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.
• 8-core CPU with 4 perform¬ance cores and 4 efficiency cores

• 16-core Neural Engine
8-core CPU - Devours tasks. Sips battery.
M1 has the fastest CPU we’ve 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 generation — it balances high-performance cores with efficiency cores that can still crush everyday jobs while using just a tenth of the power.
GPU - Plays hard. Works wonders.
The GPU in M1 puts MacBook Air in a class of its own. M1 features the world‘s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer. That’s up to 5x faster graphics performance compared with the previous generation.
Incredible graphics performanceMacBook Air can take on more graphics-intensive projects than ever. For the first time, content creators can edit and seamlessly play back multiple streams of full quality 4K video without dropping a frame.
All-day battery life
Up to 18 hours of battery life. That’s 6 more hours, free of charge.
No fan. No noise. Just Air. With the industry-leading efficiency of the M1 chip, MacBook Air delivers amazing performance without a fan. Now an aluminum heat spreader dissipates the heat the system generates, so no matter how intense the task, MacBook Air runs completely silently.
Neural Engine - Machine learning.
Up to 9x faster. Even for a 16 core Neural Engine, that’s a lot to 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’s not just brain power — that’s the power of a full stack of ML technologies.
Lifelike colors 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. Colors are more vibrant than ever. And the glass goes right to the edge of the enclosure, so nothing takes away from your gorgeous view.
