More power at its cores.
A new eighth-generation quad‑core processor on the 13‑inch MacBook Pro makes it ready to take on even the toughest tasks. So when you’re powering through pro-level processing jobs like compiling code, rendering 3D models, adding special effects, layering multiple tracks or encoding video, you’ll get everything done. Faster.
Eye-opening graphics performance.
The 13‑inch model features powerful integrated graphics with 128MB of embedded DRAM — twice as much as the previous generation — which accelerates graphics tasks. That means more time for what matters most: creating amazing work.
More ways to be productive. Always within reach.
Now on every MacBook Pro, the Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable. It changes automatically based on what you’re doing to show you relevant tools that are intuitive to use — system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, intelligent typing features like emoji, and more.
Tap it. Hold it. Flick it. Slide it.
Familiar gestures make it easy to use the Touch Bar. Tap to expand the Control Strip, flick to adjust volume and brightness or slide to rewind while watching a film.
Just what you need. Just where you need it.
Many of the built-in apps on your MacBook Pro have Touch Bar controls that make common actions like sending an email or formatting a document even easier. The Touch Bar changes to match the app you’re using, bringing these shortcuts front and centre. And third-party apps can take advantage of the Touch Bar as well.
Make quicker work of everything.
MacBook Pro includes a solid-state drive that’s amazingly fast, with sequential read speeds up to 3.2GB/s. So you can boot up, launch multiple apps or import huge files in a flash. And with the Apple T2 Security Chip, everything is automatically encrypted on the fly.
The most powerful and versatile port ever.
Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra-high bandwidth with the ultra-versatility of the USB-C industry standard to create one revved-up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. Both sizes of MacBook Pro are available with up to four ports, so you can do all of that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it’s always the right way up.
Easy on the eyes. Music to your ears.
The Retina display in MacBook Pro is the best ever in a Mac notebook. It features bright LED backlighting and a high contrast ratio, delivering deep blacks and bright whites. It supports P3 wide colour for even more vibrant greens and reds than with sRGB. And every MacBook Pro features True Tone technology. The white balance automatically adjusts to match the colour temperature of the light around you — for a more natural viewing experience. MacBook Pro has a dynamic soundstage that feels and sounds much wider than its physical dimensions imply. Films are more immersive. Music more room-filling. And three built-in mics form directional beams that capture your voice more clearly for FaceTime calls and talking to Siri.
Your workspace just got quieter.
The MacBook Pro keyboard has a butterfly mechanism — providing four times more key stability than a traditional scissor mechanism, along with greater comfort. Every MacBook Pro now features a keyboard with a quieter typing experience. And the spacious Force Touch trackpad gives your fingers plenty of room to gesture and click.
