Always intuitive. Never intimidating.

So things like managing multiple windows and keeping track of your files are a breeze.

Works perfectly with all your Apple devices.

Mac is the perfect companion to your other Apple devices. Read a message on your Apple Watch and reply from your Mac. Start a presentation on your Mac and rehearse it on your iPhone while you’re on the go. Unlock your Mac with your Apple Watch. Or even share entire photo albums with friends from across the room.

Universal Control

Use a single keyboard and mouse or trackpad to work seamlessly between your Mac and iPad — they’ll even connect to more than one Mac or iPad. Place your devices next to each other and move your cursor fluidly between devices — no setup required. Type on your Mac keyboard and watch the words show up on your iPad. You can even drag and drop content from one Mac to another.



With Handoff, you can start work on your Mac, then switch to a nearby device and pick up where you left off.

Texts and phone calls

Your Mac works just like your iPhone. Answer all your texts and phone calls from the big screen without switching gears.


Easily share photos, documents, and more with other nearby Apple devices.

Keep what’s private, pri••••.

Apple silicon and macOS Monterey bring the most advanced security of any personal computer to Mac. Mac comes with built-in protections against malware and viruses, and it gives you the freedom to choose what you share and how you share it. FileVault even encrypts your entire system for added security. So no matter what you’re doing, Mac helps your private information stay that way.

Privacy information on the App Store

The App Store is the best place to find safe and trusted apps. And easy-to-read privacy labels help you choose apps based on how they use your data.

Touch ID

Unlock your computer, enter passwords, use Apple Pay, and download apps with a single touch.

Password Monitoring

Safari securely monitors your saved passwords and continuously keeps an eye out for any you’ve reused — as well as passwords that may have been leaked in a data breach.

Intelligent Tracking Prevention

Safari protects your privacy automatically as you browse. And it comes with Intelligent Tracking Prevention, which helps stop advertisers from following you around the web.

Apple Pay

Every purchase made with Apple Pay uses a device-specific number and a unique transaction code — so your payment information is never stored or shared.5

Secure communications

End-to-end encryption protects your iMessage and FaceTime conversations across all your devices, keeping them safe from prying eyes.

Every photo, video, and voice notes you share is private and secure.
