- Color grading is 2x faster in DaVinci Resolve1 Up to 30 percent faster than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Pro6 compared to the previous generation.
MacBook Pro now features Wi-Fi 6e3 To support 8K displays up to 60Hz and 4K displays up to 240Hz, for faster wireless connectivity as well as the more advanced HDMI. These new capabilities build on the versatile connectivity options already present in the MacBook Pro, including three Thunderbolt 4 ports for high-speed connections to peripherals, an SDXC card slot, and MagSafe 3 charging.
With macOS Ventura, the MacBook Pro delivers even more performance and productivity. Powerful updates like Continuity Camera bring videoconferencing features to any Mac, including Desk View, Center Stage, Studio Light, and more. Handoff in FaceTime allows users to initiate a FaceTime call on their iPhone or iPad and fluidly pass it on to their Mac or vice versa. And tools like Stage Manager automatically organize apps and windows, so users can focus on the task at hand and still see everything at a glance.
Messages and Mail are better than ever, while Safari — the world’s fastest browser on Mac — ushers in a passwordless future with Passkey. With iCloud Shared Photo Library, users can now create and share a separate photo library among up to six family members, and the new freeform app provides a flexible canvas that helps users be more productive and expressive. , whether they are planning or brainstorming on their own, or together with others. With the power and popularity of Apple silicon and new developer tools in Metal 3, gaming on the Mac has never been better.
MacBook Pro and the Environment
The MacBook Pro is designed to reduce its impact on the environment, incorporating 100 percent of the following recycled materials: aluminum in the enclosure, rare earth elements in all magnets, tin in the solder of the main logic board, and the plating of many keys in gold printed circuit boards. It also contains 35 percent or more recycled plastic in many components, and meets Apple’s high standards for energy efficiency. The MacBook Pro is free of many harmful substances, and 97 percent of its packaging is fiber-based, bringing Apple closer to its goal of completely eliminating plastic from its packaging by 2025.
Today, Apple is carbon neutral for global corporate operations, and by 2030, plans to be 100 percent carbon neutral across the entire manufacturing supply chain and all product life cycles. This means that every Apple device sold will have a net-zero climate impact, from component manufacturing, assembly, transport, customer use, charging, recycling and material recovery.
