We all like to connect things to our laptops, especially with cables. Sure, one can use Bluetooth, but not all our devices can connect wirelessly, especially if one likes to have gaming devices such as a keyboard and mouse. So while we have the Macbook Air 2022 available, what about the Apple devices, like the Macbook Air M1 ports?

The Macbook Air M1 was originally released in 2020, but it is still quite the valid laptop for many uses, along with its sleek metallic look and great Retina display.


But in this guide, we'll take a look at the Macbook Air M1 ports to see what the laptop has to offer in that regard.

What ports does M1 Macbook Air have?

The Macbook Air M1 has two Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports which support the following connections:

  • Charging
  • DisplayPort
  • Thunderbolt 3 (up to 40GB/s)
  • USB 4 (up to 40 GB/s)
  • USB 3.1 Gen 2 (up to 10 GB/s)

The great versatility of the Thunderbolt 3 ports means that you can plug virtually anything in them, and have it work perfectly on your Mac. Along the side, you will also find a 3.5 mm audio headphone jack.

Which Mac model features the most ports?

Since the Macbook Air M1 does not have a huge selection of ports, you might be curious to know which model has the most ports. On the quite expensive side of things, that would be the Mac Pro. Its configuration can go as high as having twelve Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB 3.0, dual 10GB ethernet along with a 3.5mm headphone jack.


But that is incredibly expensive, so on a more accessible side of things, there would be the iMac 27 inch which features two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), four USB-A, Gigabit Ethernet, a 3.5mm headphone jack and an SDXC card slot.
