Apple MacBook Pro M1 13-inch 2020
All systems Pro.
The Apple MacBook Pro 2020 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. The 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.
Supercharged by the Apple M1 chip
Small chip. Giant leap.
Apple MacBook Pro 2020’s M1 Chip. The 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, M1 is not just a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.
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.
8-core GPU: Up to 5X faster graphics performance
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,7 delivering a ridiculous 5x boost in graphics horsepower.
16-core Neural Engine
Up to 11X faster Machine learning performance
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.
Speed and responsiveness
The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur work together to make the entire system snappier. MacBook Pro wakes instantly from sleep. Everyday tasks from flipping through photos to browsing Safari are faster. And your hardest-working apps all have access to the power they need.
All-day battery life
Up to 20 hours of battery life — the longest in any Mac ever.
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.
Camera and mics
Be seen. Be heard.
Thanks to M1, the FaceTime HD camera can now take full advantage of our latest image signal processor — improving image quality in video conferences and pulling out more details in both shadows and highlights. And whether you’re running a meeting, hosting a podcast, or connecting with friends and family, new studio-quality mics will make sure everyone hears you loud and clear.
FaceTime HD camera
The M1 chip even helps you look your best. Highlights in low light have never looked better. Advanced noise reduction makes dark areas sharper. And face detection uses the Neural Engine to better adjust white balance and exposure levels for even more natural‑looking skin tones.
Just your type.
Magic Keyboard lets you do everything faster and more efficiently. The refined scissor mechanism delivers a responsive, comfortable, and quiet typing experience. The Touch Bar puts the commands you need most right where you need them, saving time and keystrokes. And Touch ID provides fast, easy authentication for secure logins and purchases.
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 you shipping and billing information without sharing your card details.
Make connections. Faster than ever.
The next generation of Wi‑Fi isn’t just faster — it keeps MacBook Pro going strong even as more and more devices join the network.
Thunderbolt / USB 4
Ultra‑high bandwidth meets ultra‑versatility. Thunderbolt enables data transfer, charging, and video output all through a single port — and MacBook Pro has two of them.
