:slightly smiling face::grinning face with big eyes: Yes, of course, and it's not the only. In fact most modern compact devices are almost same, in this context - SoC (System on Chip)! Is this make them less ARM?! :thinking face: Again, rhetorical question. :winking face: Almost all ARM devices are SoC!

Hi all,

 

We've had an update from the team that this release is compatible with Apple Silicon devices and MacOS Big Sur.

 

Hope that helps!

I already told you this a few days ago.

This is working but causing serious battery drainage.  This needs to be fixed immediately.  If im doing to disable dropbox im going to cancel service.

You need stable build 110.4.458.

Dropbox seemingly determined to not tell people basic facts...

 

This is still an Intel only binary - it works on M1 & Big Sur but still using Rosetta 2.  All 8 processes of it.

It works, what's your problem with Rosetta !?

I noticed similar high CPU/energy use after first installing, but after its initial sync, Dropbox is now using very little CPU and energy (0.2 energy impact and 0.7% CPU currently).

Confirmed. Build 110.4.458 is Intel 64 architecture only.

While this build technically **works** for M1 Macs, ie, you can launch the app, and stuff will sync in your Dropbox folder, there's lots of issues. First issue I've noticed is that copying anything in to a shared folder via the Finder just results in a copy dialog sitting there forever, saying it's going to copy, but never actually doing it. Copying to the folder via the terminal works OK, and the files do sync. But it seems Finder integration isn't fully baked.

 

Tested on M1 Macbook Air and M1 Mac mini. Build v112.3.254
