The new M1 Macs are providing businesses with some prime opportunities to boost productivity, employee happiness and quality of work output in their offices.

However, if you already have Apple devices, it’s very simple to trade them in for an M1 upgrade.

One of the reasons that Macs are so popular is thanks to their durability and high-quality materials. In terms of both the software and hardware in Macs there is a lot of longevity. Macs can keep running near peak efficiency for far longer than many competitors and they experience less tech issues as they age.

For this reason, there is a value to be had in trading-in your old Apple devices.

This makes upgrading to the M1 Macs doubly advantageous. Your business can receive money for your old hardware, and you can seamlessly upgrade to new devices simultaneously.

Benefits of M1

M1 was the first chip from Apple Silicon after Macs had utilised Intel chips for decades. Not only was it a new direction and technology independence for Apple, but also a huge leap forward in SoC (system on a chip) advancement.

Thanks to the innovative integrated architecture in M1 chips, data communication between the CPU and GPU in the new Macs is more seamless and, therefore, much faster.
