Connected to everything.
Tethered to nothing.
MacBook is not just ready for the wireless world. It was designed for it. Thanks to the latest wireless technologies — and innovative Apple software and services that let you get the most out of them — you can do nearly everything you need without plugging in. This portability allowed for an incredibly light and compact design that gives you enough room for a battery that lasts all day (up to 10 hours).1 So MacBook is designed to go anywhere you want to go. And do everything you want to do along the way.
Your photos, music, and files.
Wherever you want them. Wirelessly.
Managing all your photos, music, and files used to mean syncing to multiple devices, transferring photos with cables, and emailing documents back and forth to yourself. iCloud simplifies your digital life by bringing all of these important pieces of information into a single account accessible from any Mac or iOS device. With iCloud Drive, you can safely store presentations, spreadsheets, PDFs, images, and any other kind of document or file and access them from anywhere. When you’re signed in to your iCloud account on multiple devices, you can even use Handoff to pass a document seamlessly between them, picking up right where you left off. It all happens automatically, securely, and wirelessly.2
AirDropSharing files has never been easier.
AirDrop makes sharing files with another Mac or an iOS device simple. With just a few clicks, you can take a file from any folder and use AirDrop to send it directly to a nearby Mac or iOS device. No need to email it or use any other web‑based service. It’s the simplest way to share a great photo on your Mac to your friend’s iPhone. Or send your contact info to a new colleague across the table.
Bluetooth AudioListen freely.
Nothing — including an audio cable — should come between you and your favorite music. With MacBook, you can listen to your favorite song, artist, podcast, and more with Bluetooth-enabled accessories like Beats Solo2 Wireless headphones. Or share your playlist with the whole party by streaming it to Bluetooth-enabled speakers.
AirPlayShow off your photos, video, and more on your HDTV.
Sharing a presentation or a video clip from your computer to a TV shouldn’t require any hassle or complicated setup. With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream what’s on your MacBook to your HDTV and speakers using Apple TV.3 Or mirror exactly what’s on your display to the big screen.4 Guests in your home or office can even use AirPlay to stream from their devices without having to connect to your Wi‑Fi network.5 Vacation photos, home movies, presentations — AirPlay and Apple TV put it all on your TV.
Personal HotspotWireless wherever you go.
If you’re out of Wi-Fi range, your MacBook can connect to the Personal Hotspot on your iPhone by using its cellular connection when it’s close by. So even when you’re far away from a Wi-Fi connection, using your MacBook to browse the web and send email is still well within reach. With the Instant Hotspot feature, you’ll see the name of your iPhone in the list of Wi‑Fi networks on your MacBook. Just select it and you’re connected. And when you’re not using your phone’s network, your devices intelligently disconnect to save battery life.6
Mac App Store
Download new apps and get updates to the ones you have.
MacBook comes loaded with great apps for the things you do every day. And with thousands more apps to choose from, the Mac App Store opens up just as many possibilities for what your Mac can do. No need to plug in, connect, or install anything from a disc. Just one click and you can instantly download and install a new productivity tool or a killer game directly via Wi-Fi. The Mac App Store keeps track of your apps and tells you when an update is available. And you can even have your apps and macOS update automatically whenever you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network, so you’ll always have the latest version of every app you own.
Print from anywhere.
Wireless printing makes it easy to print photos, documents, web pages, and email from your MacBook. Wireless printing compatibility is built into most popular printer models. So all you have to do is select an AirPrint-enabled printer on the same Wi-Fi network and click Print. No installation. No hassle. And no wires.
Automatic wireless backup.
Time Machine makes it simple to keep everything on your Mac backed up wirelessly to an AirPort Time Capsule or other external hard drive connected to an AirPort base station. Time Machine automatically backs up your data while you’re connected to your Wi-Fi network, so you don’t have to remember to do it. When it’s this easy to back up everything, you won’t have to worry about anything.
