Apple MacBook Air, Apple’s thinnest, lightest notebook, is 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.
The M1 chip is designed specifically for Apple MacBook Air . 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.
Up to 18 hours of battery life. That’s 6 more hours, free of charge
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.
macOS Monterey on M1
macOS Monterey unlocks the potential of the M1 chip and transforms the Apple MacBook Air 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.
