Power. It's in the Air.
Apple's thinnest, lightest notebook, completely transformed by the Apple M1 chip. CPU speeds up to 3.5x faster. 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 cCip. Giant Leap.
It's here. Apple’ 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, 1/0 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 has 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.
Magic Keyboard Go ahead. Take the keys.
When a keyboard types like a dream and still does a whole lot more:that’s magic. With new pre-programmed 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.
