Our thinnest, lightest notebook, completely transformed by the Apple M1 chip. CPU speeds up to 3.5x faster. GPU speeds up to 5x faster. An 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.
Supercharged by the Apple M1 chip
Small chip. Giant leap.
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 Devours tasks. Sips battery.
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 crush everyday jobs while using just a tenth of the power. With that kind of processing speed, MacBook Air can take on new extraordinarily intensive tasks like professional-quality editing and action-packed gaming.
8-core CPU The powerful 8-core CPU in M1 combines four performance cores and four efficiency cores that work together to tackle demanding multithreaded tasks. This results in a quantum leap in performance at a fraction of the power — and a significant boost to battery life.
Four performance cores Our high-performance core is the world‘s fastest CPU core when it comes to low-power silicon3 — and M1 has four of them combining their efforts for a massive boost in performance. Compile in Xcode in significantly less time. Record, mix, and master professional-quality music in Logic Pro with scores of tracks, plug‑ins, and virtual instruments. And create stunning images in Adobe Lightroom with unprecedented speed and responsiveness.
Four efficiency cores Four efficiency cores deliver outstanding performance for everyday tasks using just a tenth of the power. These e‑cores are the most efficient place to run lightweight tasks, allowing the performance cores to tackle the most demanding workloads.

Up to 8-core GPU The GPU in M1 delivers incredibly fast integrated graphics — up to 5x faster graphics performance compared with the previous generation.7 This puts MacBook Air in a class of its own.
Incredible graphics performance MacBook 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.8

Up to 18 hours of battery life. That’s 6 more hours, free of charge.12
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.
Up to 9x faster.13 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.
The magic of machine learning The machine learning technologies in the M1 chip open up a world of possibilities for Mac apps. Machine learning lets apps build and apply models based on massive amounts of data — to do things like identify friends and family in photos and videos, interpret natural language for dictation, and even analyze audio to recognize laughter, applause, and more. And that data is processed on device to protect your privacy — all at lightning speed.
Neural Engine The dedicated 16‑core Neural Engine in the M1 chip can execute up to a staggering 11 trillion operations per second, powering workflows you couldn’t imagine before — like enabling the djay Pro AI app to isolate instrumentals and vocals of any song in real time.
Optimized for machine learning The entire M1 chip is engineered for machine learning. The CPU, GPU, and Neural Engine are each designed for different types of machine learning workloads — and the ML performance controller distributes ML tasks to the right places to maximize performance.
ML accelerators The two dedicated ML accelerators are built for fast matrix multiplication, executing up to one trillion operations per second — perfect for low-latency ML tasks that don’t require the massive power of the Neural Engine.
The power of macOS 
Monterey on M1.
macOS Monterey unlocks the potential of the M1 chip and transforms Mac with all-new ways to work and play. Connect, share, and create like never before using FaceTime and Messages. Explore the web on the streamlined Safari, the fastest browser in the world.14 And work across Mac and your other Apple devices with Universal Control (Beta). macOS Monterey also includes industry-leading privacy features and best‑in‑class security.
The M1 chip and macOS Monterey work together to make the entire system snappier. MacBook Air 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.
More power. Wakes instantly.
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 Monterey. 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 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 Monterey give MacBook Air advanced security and privacy features beyond anything in its class, helping to keep your system and your data protected.
Secure Enclave coprocessor Provides 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 engine Keeps encryption keys safe while delivering incredible performance for encrypted storage and data protection.
Secure boot and runtime security features Ensures that only trusted Apple software loads at startup and helps protect macOS while running.
Activation Lock Helps keep your Mac secure if it‘s ever lost, stolen, or misplaced, and can improve your chances of recovering it.
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.
clarity.
Good looking. And easy on the eyes. MacBook Air automatically adjusts the white point of your display to the color temperature of your environment for a more natural viewing experience.
You’re 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’re on a call, dictating a note, or asking Siri about the weather.
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.
Say “Hello” to mics that focus on your voice instead of what’s going on around you.
Go ahead.

Take the keys.
When a keyboard types like a dream and still does a whole lot more: that’s 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 — there’s so much you can do with just a tap. And the backlit keys with ambient light sensor help you type in low‑light settings.
The refined scissor mechanism delivers the best typing experience ever on a Mac notebook.
Precise control with plenty of room to swipe, pinch, or zoom.
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.
