Hi all,

 

If you’re using a new Apple Silicon device, we recommend using this initial build until Dropbox is compatible with Silicon devices in the coming weeks.

Hi Emma,

 

Thank you so much for your message.

 

Its the first in months from Dropbox about support for Apple Silicon Macs, who are out already from juni 2020 to test under macOS Big Sur Beta, there is not the Big Sur release 11.0.1 out and pretty stable.

 

And ... it's working all fine again !!

Is this a Universal build or just an Intel build that doesn’t crash under Rosetta 2?

I would not care much for that. 
it simply works, at last !

But what about Windows on ARM? I have been waiting for this for a year now! This is ridiculous. You'll support silicon Macs very quickly but not Windows on ARM. Disgraceful.

What about Linux too? 🧐 How long gonna be ignored? 🤔 Linux has always supported ARM!

An Apple silicon M1 Mac only uses the ARM instruction set but is not really an regular ARM cpu. 

Apple uses a self developed Soc with all components imbedded in it. 

as Apple is going to sell millions of them in the next months it's worth the effort from developers to make their apps running on it. 

and if it runs on an iPhone it's really no effort to run on an Apple M1 Mac 💻.

Hi @dolfke,

🙂 Just to avoid some confusion. 😉  "ARM" (and all its versions) is a standard defining instruction set, nothing more! How the instruction set will be implemented from every one hardware provider is decision of the corresponding hardware provider. ARM main aim is ensure binary execution code compatibility (software point of view) between machines coming from different providers. Are all chips, used as interfaces for WiFi, USB, or other, using mandatory same implementation (WiFi, USB, and others are standards)? Not actually; they are functionally compatible, as the standards state! In this context, what is the meaning of your statement I have cited above (and not only)?! One implementation, whatever is, either match the ARM or not! There is NOT something like "not really". Can you figure out a situation where some particular product (whatever is - not necessary technical) can match applicable standard "not really"? What is the impression such a product (some food, for example) would let you with? As far as I know all new Apple machines are using CPUs matching ARM. If you can, please clarify what you mean "not really"; 🧐 what is it really? 🤔 ... Rhetorical question of course... 👍

An M1 is a (Apple engineered, ARM like) Soc, that includes much more than only the cpu. 

maybe I expressed myself too briefly.
