Dropbox launches long-awaited macOS version with native M1 support in beta

Dropbox was broadly criticized by Mac clients last year as the organization was at this point to update its macOS application with native support for the Apple Silicon platform. Fortunately, the organization has at last released an update for the application that brings full help for the M1 chip.

As indicated by a Dropbox client, the most recent beta rendition of the Dropbox application for macOS runs locally on the Apple Silicon stage. When you download the new installer, it accompanies the identifier “arm64,” which implies that it is viable with the ARM architecture of the M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max chips.

At long last!! Just attempted it with my MacBook Pro 16″ M1 Pro and can affirm that Dropbox presently runs as Apple Silicon version.

Though no one can really say why, Dropbox took over a year to affirm that it was chipping away at a version of its app viable with the M1 chip. Be that as it may, the organization never said when this version would be released to clients, who actually need to run the app through Rosetta – which translates Intel apps to ARM, yet with some performance loss.

Having an application running natively on Apple Silicon implies that it can take full advantage of the M1 chip and its variants. Thus, the product runs faster and furthermore consumes less power, which is extraordinary for MacBook clients when using their laptop unplugged.

Albeit the main version of Dropbox for Mac is yet to be updated with Apple Silicon support, clients can now download Dropbox Beta (form 140.3.1903) viable with M1.
