Since we've already had M1 processors in Macs for nearly a year it shouldn't take long for Applications (3rd party) to be ready for the M1 Max and Pro Macbook Pros. Of course, all the Apple created apps in Monterey are already ready for the new MBPs. There won't be any wait for reviewers to test the performance of those. They are fully optimized for the newest Apple Silicon. DaVinci Resolve is ready for the new MBPs and they've done extensive testing on it. I'm sure that Apple gave Blackmagic some new 14/16" MBPs ahead of time to do their work on optimization and support.

Because I "bought back" my M1 Mac Mini, I have seen this from both sides - hack and genuine Mac - it's surprising how many macOS software developers haven't yet gone "Universal" never mind native AS ARM.

One app I own stated in it's upgrade spiel that it was now "optimised for M1" but when I tested it, it was still an Intel only app.

I hope the situation improves because I don't understand this upgrade lag. Good for hackintoshes though ...

There will always be laggards that don't update their apps because they are either too lazy or don't see any financial incentive to do so. Apple has made things much easier this time around so they don't have many good excuses.

For instance, Adobe has not ported all of its apps yet. Probably because Rosetta works so well, but once Apple removes it I think a lot of software will end up not being ported, especially software from small developers.


There are fewer issues with Rosetta translated version than with the M1 native Photoshop version.:lol:

Brian will take his time sending that beastly 16" back to Apple. Will be months till his arrives.

Apple Mac that is only about 5% market. I dont think that Adobe will to optimalize the code for M1 CPUs . They can translate apps from Intel to M1 of course . But best performance stay with Intel/AMD. Rosetta is an emulator so not 100% performance.

So you're saying Adobe isn't going to optimize any of their apps for Apple Silicon?
