All systems Pro.
The Apple M1 chip gives the 13‑inch MacBook Pro speed and power beyond belief. With up to 2.8x CPU performance. Up to 5x the graphics speed. Our most advanced Neural Engine for up to 11x faster machine learning. And up to 20 hours of battery life — the longest of any Mac ever. It’s our most popular pro notebook, taken to a whole new level.
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 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores
- 8-core GPU
- 16-core Neural Engine
8-core CPU - We’re on a power chip.
The M1 chip makes MacBook Pro outrageously fast and powerful. Its 8‑core CPU rips through complex workflows and heavy workloads, with up to 2.8x faster processing performance than the previous generation — all with unbelievable energy efficiency.
The 8-core CPU in M1 is the highest-performing CPU we’ve ever built, by far. It combines four performance cores and four efficiency cores that work together to tackle demanding multithreaded tasks, resulting 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.
8-core GPU - Creates beauty like a beast.
The 8-core GPU in M1 is the most advanced graphics processor we’ve ever built. Period. And it brings the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer, delivering a ridiculous 5x boost in graphics horsepower.
Eight dedicated graphics coresGet ready to create and play beyond your wildest dreams. With eight powerful GPU cores tasked with making graphics smoother, faster, and breathtakingly beautiful — it’s a MacBook Pro you have to see to believe. 8K video plays seamlessly, and graphics‑intensive workflows zip by in a blink.
Incredible graphics performanceRender 3D titles up to 5x faster in Final Cut Pro. Fluidly design intricate scenes in Unity with up to 3x faster graphics. And blast through games with supersmooth frame rates when it’s time to play. Feast your eyes on the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer.
All-day battery life
Up to 20 hours of battery life — the longest in any Mac ever.
Active cooling sustains blazing-fast performance.
Machine learning - 16-core Neural Engine. Smarts, meet speed.
Machine learning (ML) brings task‑smashing speed and automation to video analysis, voice recognition, image processing, and more. And the M1 chip with 16‑core Neural Engine and full stack of technologies takes ML performance on MacBook Pro into the stratosphere.
See the better picture.
With the brilliant Retina display, images take on an incredible level of detail and realism. Text is sharp and clear. Bright LED backlighting delivers deep blacks and bright whites. P3 wide color brings even more vibrant greens and reds than sRGB. And every MacBook Pro features True Tone technology, so the white balance automatically adjusts to match the color temperature of the light around you — for a more natural viewing experience.

- True Tone technology
- True Tone technology: 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.
- P3 wide color gamut: A wider palette of colors on display.
A touch on the sensor instantly unlocks your Mac, and a press locks it. Use your fingerprint to rent movies, buy apps, or access things like locked documents or system settings without having to reenter your password. And when you shop online with Apple Pay, Touch ID automatically fills in your shipping and billing information without sharing your card details.
More shortcuts to success. Enjoy even more shortcuts and features — like your favorite emoji, preferred languages, and quicker access to Siri.
Runs a tight chip. 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 Big Sur give MacBook Pro 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.
