What is the M1 CHIP AND APPLE SILICON?
Apple announces the transition to its own chips for powering the Mac Back at the June world wide Developers conference. Doing so back in June gave developers time to start working to ensure applications would work with Apple silicon. Apple’s macOS Big Sur which is out now is also designed from the ground up for these new Macs
There are measures in place to make sure applications that aren’t optimized or updated as of yet will run on the new Macs. Rosetta is a software emulator that will essentially convert applications from intel to silicon compatible so that they can run your new mac mini. MacBook Air or 13-inch MacBook pro.
It s a nice feature that allows applications like photoshop to run in the meantime. You’ll also have access to all IOS and iPadOS apps right from the Mac app store. And applications in the future will be designed universally to work with intel and silicon Macs alike.
