Note: This guide is for the currently shipping MacBook Air models. If you’re not sure which model you have or want to find information and documentation for other models, see the Apple Support article Identify your MacBook Air model.
The 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air with M2 chip models have the following features:
Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports: Charge your computer, transfer data at Thunderbolt 3 or USB 4 speeds (up to 40 Gbit/s), connect to a display or projector, and more. The ports can also charge devices, such as an iPad or a rechargeable trackpad or keyboard.
MagSafe 3 port: Plug in the included USB-C Power Adapter to recharge the MacBook Air battery. The indicator light glows amber when the battery needs to be charged, and green when it’s fully charged. Fast charge your MacBook Air with M2 chip battery—up to 50 percent in around 30 minutes—with the optional 70W USB-C Power Adapter.
3.5 mm headphone jack: Plug in stereo headphones or external speakers to listen to your favorite music or movies. You can even use high-impedance headphones without a digital-to-analog converter or an amplifier.
1080p FaceTime HD camera: Make FaceTime video calls or take pictures and video. The camera system provides high-quality video and great low-light performance. If the green indicator light next to the camera is glowing, the camera is on. See FaceTime and Use the built-in camera on Mac in the macOS User Guide.
Speakers: The 15-inch MacBook Air with M2 chip has a six-speaker sound system that consists of two tweeters and two sets of force-canceling woofers. The 13-inch MacBook Air with M2 chip has a four-speaker sound system that consists of two tweeters and two woofers. With both, enjoy an immersive audio experience with Spatial Audio support for movies and music with Dolby Atmos.
Touch ID (the power button): Press to turn on your MacBook Air (or just lift the lid). You can also lock your Mac by pressing the Touch ID button. When you first start up or restart, you need to log in by typing your password. After you set up Touch ID, you can authenticate with a touch instead of typing your password (after your first login), and use Touch ID for Apple Pay purchases. See Magic Keyboard for MacBook Air.
Microphones: Talk with friends or record audio with the built-in three-microphone array.
Force Touch trackpad: Control your MacBook Air with trackpad gestures. The entire trackpad surface acts as a button so you can easily click anywhere. For more about using gestures, see MacBook Air trackpad.
