Declared noise emission values in accordance with ECMA-109
Sound Power Level L <sub> W A,m </sub> (B)
Sound Pressure Level Operator Position L <sub> p A,m </sub> (dB)
1.3 ( K <sub> v </sub> = 0.3)
1.3 ( K <sub> v </sub> = 0.3)
L <sub> W A,m </sub> is the mean A-weighted sound power level, rounded to the nearest 0.1 B.
L <sub> p A,m </sub> is the mean A-weighted sound pressure level measured at the operator position (rounded to the nearest 1 dB).
1 B (bel) = 10 dB (decibel)
K <sub> v </sub> is the statistical adder for computing upper-limit of A-weighted sound power level.
The quantity, L <sub> W A,c </sub> (formerly called L <sub> W Ad </sub> ) may be computed from the sum of L <sub> W A,m </sub> and K <sub> v </sub> .
The Wireless web test browses 25 popular websites.
* Data accurate as of product launch. ** Final assembly supplier sites for the MacBook Air are third-party certified as Zero Waste by UL LLC (UL 2799 Standard).

Testing conducted by Apple in February 2020 using preproduction 1.1GHz dual-core Intel Core i3-based MacBook Air systems with8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD. The wireless web test measures battery life by wirelessly browsing 25 popular websites with display brightness set to 12 clicks from bottom or 75%. The Apple TV app movie playback test measures battery life by playing back HD 1080p content with display brightness set to 12 clicks from bottom or 75%. The standby test measures battery life by allowing a system, connected to a wireless network and signed in to an iCloud account, to enter standby mode with Safari and Mail applications launched and all system settings left at default. Battery life varies by use and configuration. See for more information.
Weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process.
iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are available on the Mac App Store. Downloading apps requires an Apple ID and a device that is compatible with the OS version required for each app.
