The new M2 chip makes the 13‑inch MacBook Pro more capable than ever. The same compact design supports up to 20 hours of battery life and an active cooling system to sustain enhanced performance. Featuring a brilliant Retina display, a FaceTime HD camera and studio‑quality mics, it is our most portable pro laptop.
The M2 chip begins the next generation of Apple silicon, with even more of the speed and power efficiency introduced by M1. So you can tear through workflows with a more powerful 8-core CPU. Produce stunning graphics with a lightning‑fast 10‑core GPU. Work with more streams of 4K and 8K ProRes video with the high-performance media engine. And do it all at once with up to 24GB of quicker unified memory.
Active cooling sustains blazing‑fast performance. Thanks to its advanced thermal system and the efficiency of Apple silicon, MacBook Pro can sustain pro levels of performance, so you can run CPU‑ and GPU‑intensive tasks for hours on end.
Faster memory. And more of it.
M2 has 100GB per second of memory bandwidth — 50 per cent more than M1. And it supports 24GB of unified memory for superfluid multitasking and working with massive files.
Performs well with others.
macOS and M2 work together to bring more speed and responsiveness to all your go‑to apps — including Microsoft 365 and your favourite iOS apps. Over 10,000 apps and plug‑ins are already optimised for Apple silicon. And Rosetta 2 seamlessly translates apps made for Intel processors for use on your MacBook Pro.
All-day battery life
Go the distance with up to 20 hours of battery life.
A portable editing bay.
The high-performance media engine on M2 supports ProRes encode and decode. So you can play and edit up to 11 streams of 4K ProRes video and up to two streams of 8K ProRes video — including 4K ProRes video shot on iPhone 13 Pro. And convert projects to ProRes up to 3x quicker than before.
The M2 chip and macOS give MacBook Pro security and privacy features beyond anything in its class. With built‑in protections against malware and viruses, the freedom to choose what you share and how you share it, and silicon‑level features like Touch ID and Apple Pay, it is built to safeguard your privacy and data at every stage.
See the better picture.
With the brilliant Retina display, images take on an amazing level of detail and realism. Text is sharp and clear. Bright LED backlighting provides deep blacks and bright whites. P3 wide colour brings even more vibrant greens and reds than sRGB. And MacBook Pro features True Tone technology, so the white balance automatically adjusts to match the colour temperature of the light around you — for a more natural viewing experience.
Camera and mics
Be seen. Be heard.
Thanks to M2, the FaceTime HD camera takes full advantage of our latest image signal processor — so you’ll look great in video calls. And whether you’re running a meeting, hosting a podcast, or connecting with friends and family, the studio-quality mics will make sure everyone hears you loud and clear.
FaceTime HD camera
With the advanced image signal processor on M2, you will look your best on video calls.
Studio quality. Without the studio. An enhanced signal‑to‑noise ratio rivals that of professional‑grade microphones.
Just your type.
Magic Keyboard delivers a comfortable, quiet and responsive typing experience. The Touch Bar puts the commands you need most exactly where you need them, saving time and keystrokes. And Touch ID offers fast, easy authentication for secure logins and purchases.
Shortcuts to success. Do all kinds of things faster with handy shortcuts and features — like your favourite emoji, preferred languages and easier access to Siri.
A touch on the sensor immediately 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 re-enter 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.
Make connections. Faster than ever.
Ultra‑high bandwidth meets remarkable versatility. Thunderbolt enables data transfer, charging and video output all through a single port — and MacBook Pro has two of them. Wi‑Fi 6 keeps MacBook Pro going strong as more and more devices join the network. And the headphone jack even supports high‑impedance headphones.
