Thin and fast with the Apple M1 chip
Incredibly light and boasting a speedy performance, get your work done anywhere with the MacBook Air (2020).
From video-editing to gaming, the Apple M1 chip lets you take on the biggest tasks without draining your battery. It’s 3.5x faster than the previous generation, with eight-cores of power providing an incredible performance. And for whisper-quiet operation, the improved thermal efficiency means it doesn’t even need a fan.
With the Retina Display screen, everything from blockbuster movies to everyday browsing is a visual joy. True Tone technology automatically adjust the display to your environment – so web pages and emails look as natural as if they were printed.
SSD for superfast loading
At the heart of the MacBook Air is a solid state drive with 256 GB of storage space. So, there’s plenty of room for your work projects, movies, photos and music. And it’s twice as fast as the previous MacBook Air, so you can load up your important files at lightning-speed.
Browse all day with up to 18 hours of battery life
Forget the mid-day recharge. Thanks to the M1 chip, the MacBook Air will give you up to 15 hours of web browsing, or up to 18 hours of the content you love on Apple TV. That’s plenty for the entire working day, as well as your entertainment on the journey to and from the office.
More detail in your FaceTime calls
Look your best on FaceTime calls thanks to the M1 chip. It uses an image signal processor to give clearer, sharper images, while the Neural Engine can recognize faces to adjust white balance and exposure for improved, natural-looking skin.
Unlock your MacBook securely with Touch ID
Forgotten passwords are a thing of the past thanks to the MacBook Air’s Touch ID sensor. Simply place your finger over the sensor to unlock with nothing but your fingerprint, for effortless security wherever you are. It’s great for accessing sensitive documents and system settings or shopping online with Apple Pay, so you can keep everything important safe.
