Make big things happen. All day long.
MacBook Air lasts up to an incredible 12 hours between charges. So from your morning coffee to your evening commute, you can work unplugged. When its time to kick back and relax, you can get up to 12 hours of iTunes movie playback. And with up to 30 days of standby time, you can go away for weeks and pick up where you left off.
Thin. Light. Powerful. And ready for anything.
Whatever the task, fifth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors with Intel HD Graphics 6000 are up to it. From editing photos to browsing the web, everything happens ultra-fast. And all that power is encased in an incredibly thin 1.7-centimetre unibody design that weighs only 1.35 kilos.
802.11ac Wi-Fi. Effortless wireless.
Instantly connect to an 802.11ac base station - including AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time Capsule and experience wireless performance up to three times faster than the previous Wi-Fi generation. 802.11ac also delivers expanded range, so you can work more freely than ever.
All systems go with SSD storage.
The SSD storage in MacBook Air is up to 17 times faster than a 5400-rpm notebook hard drive. So everything you do is snappy and responsive. MacBook Air even wakes up fast, thanks to SSD storage and fifth-generation Intel Core processors.
Make the most of your day. From startup to sundown.
Fifth-generation Intel Core processors in MacBook Air give you more time to do more things. Add that to an array of other smart and efficient features, and you have an incredible amount of power in your hands. While carrying next to nothing.
Up to 12 hours of battery life.
Power through your whole day.
Thanks to compact SSD storage in MacBook Air, theres plenty of room for a big battery. Working together with the power-efficient fifth-generation Intel Core architecture, this battery can post some impressive numbers. MacBook Air gets up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge. That gives you all-day power for surfing the web or watching iTunes films. Put MacBook Air to sleep for more than 3 hours, and it enters standby mode to conserve battery life for up to 30 days.
Processors and Graphics
Fifth-generation Intel Core processors.
Performance, meet endurance.
MacBook Air is powered by fifth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. This ultra-efficient architecture was designed to use less power and still deliver high performance. Which means not only can you do whatever you want - you can keep doing it for longer than before. In addition, the Intel HD Graphics 6000 processor offers advanced performance youll particularly notice with games and other graphics-intensive tasks.
The definition of fast.
MacBook Air supports ultra-fast 802.11ac Wi?Fi. When connected to an 802.11ac base station - including AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule - wireless performance is up to three times faster than 802.11n Wi-Fi. And your Wi-Fi range improves as well. With Bluetooth technology, you can connect MacBook Air to Bluetooth-enabled devices like speakers and headphones. Even without all the wires, youre totally connected.
Wi-Fi Data Rate
Fast SSD storage.
Ready. Set. Done.
Part of what makes MacBook Air so responsive is that its designed entirely around SSD storage. Not only does this make MacBook Air much lighter and more portable than traditional notebooks, it also provides faster access to data. Available in capacities up to 512GB, this PCIe-based SSD storage is up to 17 times faster than a traditional 5400-rpm notebook hard drive. So when you flip open MacBook Air, its ready to go straightaway. Even after a month in standby mode, the screen springs to life.
Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.
Make some powerful connections.
Connect your MacBook Air to your devices and displays with a Thunderbolt 2 port thats twice as fast as the previous generation. But thats not the whole story. MacBook Air also comes equipped with two USB 3 ports, so you can connect the latest USB 3 devices and all your USB 2 devices as well. With just a few connections, MacBook Air transforms from an ultra-portable notebook into a complete workstation.
Display and Camera
Display, camera and mics.
Impressive. In every sense.
Make FaceTime calls from your MacBook Air to an iPhone 4 or later, iPad, iPod touch or another Mac running FaceTime for Mac.
LED-backlit display. Millions of pixels. Millimetres thin.
MacBook Air gives you 1440x900 pixel resolution on a display that measures a mere 4.86 millimetres thin. And LED backlighting makes colours bright and vibrant from edge to edge. So whether youre editing photos, perfecting a presentation or watching a movie, youre going to love what you see.
FaceTime HD camera. Stay sharp.
Let your friends and family see more of you with the 720p FaceTime HD camera. Every smile looks bright, even halfway round the world. And the widescreen format means everyone can fit into the picture without having to crowd round the display.
Dual mics. Theyll hear you loud and clear.
The dual microphones in MacBook Air are great for when you want to be heard. If youre making a FaceTime call, for example, the mics reduce background noise from behind the notebook. And when you use Dictation, they create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice - instead of the noise around you.
It goes hand in hand with macOS.
The Multi-Touch gestures in macOS make everything you do on MacBook Air more intuitive, direct and fun. And the spacious Multi-Touch trackpad is perfectly designed for them, whether its a three-finger swipe to activate Mission Control or a four-finger pinch to see all your apps in Launchpad. Gesture responses are smooth and realistic. So when youre scrolling up and down a web page or swiping from one full-screen app to another, its almost like youre touching what youre seeing.
Press down anywhere to click. Or with Tap to Click enabled, tap the trackpad.
Press down two times anywhere. Or with Tap to Click enabled, double-tap the trackpad.
Tap to zoom
Double-tap the trackpad with two fingers to magnify a web page or PDF.
Slide two fingers up or down the trackpad to scroll through documents, websites and more.
Swipe to navigate
Flip through web pages, documents and more like thumbing pages in a book.
View Mission Control
Swipe up on the trackpad to get a birds-eye view of everything running on your Mac.
What you see is what you type.
As incredibly compact as MacBook Air is, it still manages to fit a full-sized keyboard that makes typing as natural as it is comfortable. And the keyboard is backlit, so you can type with ease in even the dimmest light. A built-in ambient light sensor detects changes in lighting conditions and adjusts the display and keyboard brightness automatically. From a seat in a sunny caf to a seat on an overnight flight, youll always have the perfect lighting for any environment.

Your content. On all your devices.
iCloud stores your content and lets you access your music, photos, calendars, contacts, documents and more from whatever device youre on. So if you take a picture with your iPhone or make changes to your meeting schedule on your iPad, iCloud makes sure everything appears on your Mac too. And it works both ways - create a to-do list on your Mac and you can make edits to it on your iPhone.
Its why theres nothing elselikeaMac.
macOS is the operating system that powers every Mac. It lets you do things you simply cant with other computers. Thats because its designed specifically for the hardware it runs on - and vice versa. So your Mac works like magic with your iPhone and other Apple devices. And it works hand in hand with iCloud to keep photos, documents and other stuff up to date on those devices. macOS also comes with an entire suite of beautifully designed apps. And its been built from the ground up with privacy and security in mind.
Easy to Use
When its simple to do everything, you can do anything.
On a Mac, everything is designed to work just the way you expect it to - from operating it with simple, intuitive gestures to having your apps automatically update themselves. Whatever you set out to do on a Mac, theres much less to learn and that much more to accomplish.
The Finder lets you easily browse and organise the files on your Mac and the ones stored in iCloud Drive.
A simple two-finger swipe brings up Notification Centre - the same one you use on iPhone - where you can see all the alerts that have come in recently. Its also where youll find your Today view, which you can customise with helpful widgets or handy information pinned from Safari.
All your devices. One seamless experience.
Your Mac works with your other Apple devices in ways no other computer can. If you get a call on your iPhone, you can take it on your Mac. And you can copy images, videos and text from your iPhone, then paste to your nearby Mac - or vice versa. You can even unlock your Mac just by walking up to it wearing your Apple Watch.
Copy images, videos or text from an app on your iPhone. Then paste into another app on your nearby Mac. And of course, it works the other way around too - so you can browse a recipe on your Mac and paste the ingredients directly to the grocery list on your iPhone.
Automatically log in to your Mac when youre wearing your Apple Watch. No password typing required.
Calls and Messages.
Make and receive phone calls on your iPhone - without picking up your iPhone. When a call comes in, just click Accept on your Mac. When you want to make a call on your Mac, just click the number. Your Mac is a whiz with messages too. All the texts and iMessages that appear on your iPhone also appear on your Mac.
When your Mac and iOS devices are near each other, they can automatically pass whatever youre doing from one device to another. So you can start writing an email on a Mac and take it with you to your meeting on your iPhone.
With just a few clicks on your Mac, you can use AirDrop to quickly transfer any file from any folder and send it to a nearby Mac or iOS device, and vice versa. Even when theres no Wi-Fi network available.
No Wi-Fi? No problem. With Instant Hotspot, your Mac can remotely activate the Personal Hotspot on your iPhone when theyre near each other.
Apps as powerful and elegant as your Mac. Because theyre designed for it.
With every Mac, you get a collection of powerful apps. Theyre the same apps you use on your iPhone or iPad, so theyll feel instantly familiar. They all work with iCloud, so your schedule, contacts and notes are always up to date everywhere. And because theyre native apps - not web apps in a browser - they take full advantage of the power of your Mac to deliver the fastest possible performance and more robust features.
Organise, edit and share a lifetimes worth of photos and videos, and rediscover your favourite memories. Transform home videos into unforgettable movies or quickly share clips with your favourite people. And easily create music like the pros with a virtual session drummer perfectly suited to your style.

Easily manage all of your email accounts in one simple, powerful app that works with email services like iCloud, Gmail, Yahoo, AOL and Microsoft Exchange. Send unlimited messages to anyone on any Apple device, using the same Messages app on your Mac as you do on your iPhone. And make unlimited high-quality video and audio calls directly from your Mac with FaceTime.
Keep your iCloud, Google and Exchange calendars in one place, create separate calendars for home, work and school, and view them all or just the ones you want. Keep all your contact info up to date on all your devices and automatically import numbers, addresses and photos from Facebook, LinkedIn, Google and even Microsoft Exchange. And keep track of little and big things with notes that can include links, photos, map locations and more.
