Original Post:

 

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:

I hope you have corrected dear Megan with her horrible, tone-deaf response to this critical issue. Imagine the number of users you have lost because of your hubris and laziness in addressing this: 

 
This idea is going to need a bit more support before we share your suggestion with our team. We’ve updated the status to encourage more users to back you up!

I’d appreciate this feature. Hard to keep using Dropbox without this support. I’d like to avoid moving to iCloud.

It's a shame, but I'm moving to Sync and iCloud. I'm done. These companies make money off of us and then don't support us. It's not OK. #DropDropbox

I purchased a new MacBook Pro and suddenly realised that Dropbox is draining my battery because it hasn't been updated for M1 yet. Very disappointing. I've been a professional dropbox user for many years now. This is the first time I'm considering moving to another cloud solution. I don't want to, but this is unacceptable. It's been a year since M1 has been out. Please fix this asap.

I’m not paying any longer. Just cancelled my dropbox subscription and will never look back. Good riddance I say.

My new M1 arrived yesterday. I will wait to see if there will be M1 support this month, if not, I am canceling my account.

It is ridiculous that Dropbox is not supporting M1.

I will say this... I will be purchasing a new Macbook in 1st-quarter 2022.  As a loyal Dropbox user for 10 years, this is the first time I'm considering jettisoning Dropbox if they don't provide native support for Apple Silicon.

Get your app updated and away from kernel extensions.  Considering the size of your company, I find it disturbing that so little resources are allocated to keeping your software current.  This is the kind of thinking usually applied to failing companies.
