Dropbox on Mac, Apple Silicon chip support coming soon
Last October some official responses on the Dropbox forum raised protests from many users. Indeed, it appeared that the company had no intention of providing a native support for the new processors developed by Apple. Instead, he would continue to use technology Apple Rosette 2 to ‘translate’ Intel-based apps on Apple’s new machines.
The Dropbox CEO, however, silenced the criticisms by announcing the arrival of native support for Apple Silicon for the first half of 2022. And something starts to move. Test phases have begun on a small unit of users and it appears that the public beta may arrive by the end of JanuaryiThe.
Intel applications with Rosetta 2 work fine in most cases, but some users have complained slowdowns during operation. Something that Mac users have slowed down in the past few months. With graphics apps running lightning fast on new MacBooks, the fact that the cloud save app slows down the system seems anachronistic.
Some users in recent times have even switched to different apps that allow you to sync with the Dropbox cloud, without having to use the app. But with the arrival of Apple Silicon chip support in the first half of 2022, things could change. And make this application also snappy on Apple’s new computers. We will keep you informed of news.
