A powerful arrangement.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro is designed to let you do everything faster and more efficiently. The new Magic Keyboard features a refined scissor mechanism with 1mm of travel, delivering the best typing experience ever on a Mac notebook. A dedicated Escape key allows quick switching between modes and views. The inverted “T” arrow keys help you fly through lines of code, spreadsheets or game environments. The Touch Bar puts powerful shortcuts front and centre, and Touch ID provides fast authentication.
Apple T2 Security Chip
The next generation of security.
Every MacBook Pro is equipped with the Apple T2 Security Chip — our second‑generation custom Mac silicon designed to make everything you do even more secure. It includes a Secure Enclave coprocessor that provides the foundation for secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities. It also consolidates many discrete controllers, including the system management controller, audio controller and SSD controller, into one. And the Apple T2 Security Chip brings a familiar voice to MacBook Pro — Hey Siri is always ready to open apps, find documents, play music or answer your questions.
Extend your desktop.
Sidecar lets you extend your workspace by using your iPad as a second Mac display. Work in one app while you reference another or view your artwork on your MacBook Pro while you use tools and palettes on your iPad. You can also mirror the screens so they both display the same content, making it perfect for sharing exactly what you see with others.
Express your creativity.
With Apple Pencil.
Bring the ease and precision of Apple Pencil to your favourite creative Mac apps with Sidecar. Use Apple Pencil to design in Illustrator, edit photos in Affinity Photo or create 3D models in ZBrush. The handy sidebar puts essential Command, Control and Shift keys at your fingertips.
Mac + iPhone
All together now.
Copy a note on your iPhone and paste it on your Mac. Create a storyboard on your Mac and take it with you on your iPhone. Start an Apple Arcade game on either device and finish it on the other. Your Mac works with your iPhone in ways no other computer can.
HandoffStart a document, email, text, note and more on your Mac and finish it on your iPhone — or vice versa.
The power of Mac.
Dedicated apps for music, TV and podcasts. Smart new features like Sidecar. Powerful technology for developers. And a whole new class of apps now on Mac.
It’s why there’s nothing else like a Mac.
macOS is the operating system that powers every Mac. It lets you do things you simply can’t do with other computers. That’s because it’s designed specifically for the hardware it runs on — and vice versa. macOS comes with an entire suite of beautifully designed apps. It works hand in hand with iCloud to keep photos, documents and other stuff up to date on all your devices. It makes your Mac work like magic with your iPhone and other Apple devices. And it’s been built from the ground up with privacy and security in mind.
Easy to UseWhen it’s 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 asking Siri to find a file to having your apps automatically update themselves. Whatever you set out to do on a Mac, there’s much less to learn and that much more to accomplish.
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 when friends text you — regardless of the phone they have — you can respond from your Mac, iPad or iPhone, whichever is closest. When you copy text or an image from one device, you can paste it into another with standard copy and paste commands. And with Sidecar, you can extend your workspace by using your iPad as a second Mac display. You can even unlock your Mac with your Apple Watch. No password typing required.
We make sure that everyone is able to use a Mac.
macOS comes as standard with a wide range of assistive technologies that help people with disabilities experience what Mac has to offer, providing many features you won’t find in other operating systems. Voice Control lets users control their Mac, iPad and iPhone entirely with their voice. And features such as VoiceOver, Accessibility Keyboard, FaceTime and Text to Speech help everyone get more out of Mac.
Advanced to the core.
macOS features powerful core technologies engineered for the most important functions of your Mac. Thanks to Mac Catalyst, you can now enjoy your favourite iPad apps on your Mac. With SwiftUI, developers have a simple way to build better apps across all Apple platforms with less code. Create ML gives developers a faster and easier way to build machine learning into apps. And support for virtual and augmented reality lets developers create immersive worlds for you to step into.
Need to work with Windows? Mac does that too.
With macOS, it’s easy to transfer your files, photos and other data from a Windows PC to your Mac. Work with popular file types such as JPEG, MP3 and PDF, as well as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. And, of course, you can run Microsoft Office natively on a Mac. If you want, you can even run Windows on your Mac.
