In 2021, Doubletapp more than doubled in size. One of our competencies is iOS development, so we needed a lot of new MacBooks. We tested a number of models and now we can say with confidence which MacBook is suitable for programming, in particular for iOS development.
Note that all tests described below were carried out in the fall of 2021. In 2022, we will supplement this article, where we will update the selection by adding new models to this article.

User experience assessment:
We carried out all the tests that we planned, and also checked the build speed on one of our large projects - the EDGE messenger,
And here's what we got:
As expected, the Mac Pro M1 turned out to be the most productive MacBook.
The most optimal MacBook in terms of price / quality ratio turned out to be the Mac Air M1, it costs 30,000 less, while its performance for closing iOS development tasks is not much lower.
