About Apple MacBook Pro 2021
Apple MacBook Pro.
The most powerful MacBook Pro ever is here. With the blazing-fast M1 Pro chip - the first Apple silicon designed for pros - you get groundbreaking performance and amazing battery life. Add to that a stunning Liquid Retina XDR display, the best camera and audio ever in a Mac notebook, and all the ports you need. The first notebook of its kind, this MacBook Pro is a beast.
Supercharged For Pros.
Up to 3.7x faster CPU performance
Up to 13x faster graphics performance
Up to 11x faster machine learning
Up to 21 hours battery life
M1 Pro. Scary Fast.
M1 Pro takes the exceptional performance of the M1 architecture to a whole new level for pro users. Even the most ambitious projects are easily handled with up to 10 CPU cores, up to 16 GPU cores, a 16‑core Neural Engine, and dedicated encode and decode media engines that support H.264, HEVC, and ProRes codecs.
M1 Max. Scary Faster.
M1 Max is the most powerful chip ever created for a pro notebook, with 10 CPU cores, up to 32 GPU cores, and a 16-core Neural Engine. It delivers two times faster graphics processing and double the memory bandwidth of M1 Pro. And it has a dedicated media engine for decode and two for encode — with up to two times faster video encoding — and two ProRes accelerators for even higher multistream performance.
Choose Your Size. Choose Your Chip. Let It Rip.
The new MacBook Pro is available in 14- and 16-inch models. Each can be configured with the M1 Pro or M1 Max chip and offers unprecedented levels of pro performance. So you can manipulate millions of polygons in Cinema 4D, edit up to seven streams of 8K ProRes video in Final Cut Pro, or grade color in HDR on 8K 4x4 ProRes video — all miles away from the edit bay.
We Can Do This All Day.
Ferocious performance with game‑changing battery life — that efficiency is the magic of Apple silicon. A single charge lets you compile up to four times as much code in Xcode or edit images for up to twice as long in Lightroom Classic. And unlike other notebooks, MacBook Pro delivers the same amazing performance whether it’s plugged in or not.
The Coolest Part.
Advanced thermal systems move 50 percent more air, even at lower fan speeds. And thanks to the efficiency of Apple silicon, the fans never turn on for many tasks you do every day
Fast. And Vast.
Get jaw-dropping read speeds from the up to 8TB SSD — up to 7.4GB/s or two times the previous generation. So you can open 8K videos instantly or store hundreds of thousands of RAW photos at once.
Feast Your Eyes On XDR.
Liquid Retina XDR. The best display ever in a notebook features Extreme Dynamic Range and a million to one contrast ratio. HDR content comes to life in photos, video, and games — with refined specular highlights, incredible detail in shadows, and vibrant, true-to-life colors. Each display is factory calibrated and features pro reference modes for HDR color grading, photography, design, and print production. ProMotion. ProMotion comes to Mac for the first time, making everything from scrolling through a web page to gaming super fluid and responsive — while also reducing power consumption. With refresh rates of up to 120Hz, the adaptive technology automatically adjusts to match the movement of the content. ProMotion video editors can also choose a fixed refresh rate that precisely aligns with their footage.
Staying connected is more important than ever. That’s why the new MacBook Pro camera has double the resolution — 1080p — and uses a lens with a wider aperture that lets in more light. Together with a larger image sensor that has more efficient pixels, the camera delivers two times better low‑light performance.
Thanks to the room-filling six-speaker system and advanced algorithms, MacBook Pro supports spatial audio when playing music or video with Dolby Atmos, creating a sophisticated, three-dimensional soundstage. Combine that with the Liquid Retina XDR display, and it's like having a portable theater.
More Plugged In Than Ever.
Transfer photos and videos with an SDXC card reader. Connect to TVs or displays with HDMI output. Listen using a 3.5 mm headphone jack that detects and automatically adjusts for high-impedance headphones. Connect to high-speed peripherals or displays with three Thunderbolt 4 ports. And fast-charge using the quick-releasing MagSafe 3 port.
More Pixels Than Ever.
Connect up to two Pro Display XDRs with M1 Pro.
Pro Power Meets Pro Keyboard.
For the first time, Magic Keyboard brings a full-height function key row to MacBook Pro - with the tactile feel of mechanical keys that pros love. It includes new keyboard shortcuts for Spotlight, Siri, Dictation, and Do Not Disturb. And Touch ID has a new, tactile ring that guides your finger for a fast, easy, secure way to unlock your Mac.
MacOS Monterey & Apple Silicon. Beauty & The Beast.
Use a single keyboard and mouse or trackpad to work seamlessly between your Mac and iPad with Universal Control.27 Automate complex tasks with Shortcuts. Share your screen, watch together, or collaborate with FaceTime. And browse with the best Safari yet. When it's time to concentrate, Focus lets you control which people and apps can reach you.
Pro Apps. Unleashed By M1 Pro & M1 Max.
Over 10,000 apps and plug-ins are already optimized for Apple silicon. And Rosetta 2 seamlessly translates apps designed for Intel processors for use on your new MacBook Pro.
