Retina screen, four million pixels. One immersive experience.

So when you use Touch ID to unlock your Mac, authenticate a document, or pay an online merchant, your information remains safe. And thanks to instant data encryption, all your data stored on the SSD is automatically and completely encrypted.
Speakers & Camera: Voice that speaks volumes.
With the latest in processing and tuning technology, MacBook Air looks better than ever. Stereo speakers deliver double the bass and 25 percent more volume.1 And wider stereo sound creates an immersive sound when listening to music or watching a movie. The FaceTime camera allows one - or many - of your friends and family to see you in high definition. Three array microphones form more accurately capture your voice for FaceTime calls and dictation.
Thunderbolt 3: One For All, All In One.
Thunderbolt 3 combines the superior bandwidth and the superior versatility of USB-C to create one enhanced universal port - and MacBook Air has two of them. Thunderbolt 3 integrates data transmission, charging, and video output into a single connector, providing transfer speeds of up to 40 Gbps to double the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. Existing devices can be easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you connect it, the right side is always up.
