Apps and Installations
Have a question about a Dropbox app or installation? Reach out to the Dropbox Community and get solutions, help, and advice from members.
Please can you upgrade the Dropbox app so that it works natively on Apple Silicon Macs (M1) without Rosetta.
Rosetta is not an option as it annihilates the battery.
This may be a duplicate of the below idea however that started for ARM processors in general and you haven't looked at it in 6 years so starting an Apple specific idea in the hope you see it.
There are also lots of comments on this thread to help support the case for demand:
The fact this hasn’t happened yet, and ALL these Mac users are forced to come here and express their outrage says A LOT about this company and it’s priorities. Been a Dropbox business/premium user for years and am seriously considering abandoning Dropbox for good because of this. Fix this, please Dropbox!!!!!!
My M1Pro MacBook Pro arrives in a few days. Thanks for the info that Dropbox saps M1 battery life and that Dropbox (bizarrely) has no plans to support native M1 - I'll uninstall and get rid of Dropbox at this point as I'm also using other services which will support Mac silicon.
Wow. This is seriously worrying - are you guys out of money or something? Should we be worried about the viability of Dropbox here? This isn’t a strategic decision guys, this is a BAU change. You’re really betting on gasoline for your future success when the whole world is going electric…? Sorry, but this is nuts. Hello Box!
