MacBook Pro elevates the notebook to a whole new level of performance and portability. Wherever your ideas take you, you’ll get there faster than ever with high‑performance processors and memory, advanced graphics, blazing‑fast storage, and more — all in a compact 3-pound package.
Processor and Memory
With an 8th-generation quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, the 13-inch MacBook Pro is ready to take on even the toughest tasks. So when you’re powering through pro‑level processing jobs like compiling code, layering multiple tracks in a music composition, or encoding video, you’ll get everything done faster.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro includes a solid-state drive that’s blazing fast, with sequential read speeds up to 3.0GB/s.10. With the Apple T2 Security Chip, everything is automatically encrypted on the fly.
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 1 mm 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 center, and Touch ID provides fast authentication.
The commands you need most are right where you need them — saving time and keystrokes.
Fast, easy authentication for secure logins and purchases. Force Touch trackpad. Interact with your Mac in a variety of ways based on subtle differences in pressure.
Apple T2 Security Chip
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.
Display and Audio
The Retina display features bright LED backlighting and delivers deep blacks and bright whites. It supports P3 wide color 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 color 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. Movies 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.
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. MacBook Pro is 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 right side up.
Sidecar lets you extend your workspace by using your iPad as a second Mac display.12 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.
