Dropbox is coming to Mac with Apple Silicon

It's been more than a year since Apple announced the transition of its computers to ARM processors. However, not all programs are adapted to run natively on Macs with M1 and newer chips. Dropbox is still one of the outsiders.

Although the application works correctly through Rosetta 2, users complain that this significantly reduces the autonomy of the MacBook. At the same time, representatives of the service have not yet announced the release date for the native version of Dropbox for computers with Apple processors.

The situation has changed unexpectedly. When developer Mitchell Hashimoto tweeted that he was ready to retire Dropbox after 12 years of use due to the lack of a version for Apple Silicon, CEO Drew Houston commented on the post.

Here is a translation of his answer:

We will definitely support Apple Silicon, I apologize for any misunderstandings. We've been working on a build for the M1 for some time now, with a plan to release it in the first half of 2022 (and I agree the responses on the forums are far from ideal).

In other words, life for Mac users with M1 and its modifications will become easier next year – but until then the service will be available exclusively through the emulator.
