Microsoft has announced this week that its OneDrive client for macOS has now been updated to support Apple’s latest Apple Silicon Mac computers. Microsoft has been testing this new version since last year and should run faster as the emulation from Rosetta 2 will no longer be needed as the app is now native to the new chips.
Microsoft provided a statement on the OneDrive Blog this week:
“We’re excited to announce that OneDrive sync for macOS will now run natively on Apple silicon. This means that OneDrive will take full advantage of the performance improvements of Apple silicon.”
The app will now take advantage of the M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max chips found in the latest Mac hardware including the M1 iMac 24-inch and the latest MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch.
