Touch Bar
Every keystroke, thought, or line of code just feels right.
Scissor mechanism
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.

Three-mic array
The Apple M1 chip even helps you look your best. Highlights in low light come in clearer. 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.
FaceTime HD camera
Thanks to M1, the FaceTime HD camera can now take full advantage of Apple’s 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.
