Zoom’s Native Version Will Suport New Generation Of Apple Computers
The new and enhanced features on Zoom include support for Apple Silicon processors, better support computers with ARM CPUs.
Issuing a new update, the popular video conferencing platform Zoom is all set to offer support for the latest Apple Silicon Macs including native performance on the M1 MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini. The news broke out when the release notes of the new update were published on Monday, December 21.
To give out the overall gist, the new ‘native’ version of Zoom will be available for these new and updated Apple computers. While the exact benefits of the new version are yet to be cleared, it might help the program run faster, though there have been no reports of the sluggishness of the inbuilt x86 app on M1 Macs. Also, the performance of the app has been commendable and is efficient for its battery. However, a native M1 version would reduce power usage even further.
In the notes, Zoom mentioned, “Support for Apple Silicon processors – Zoom desktop clients will better support computers with ARM CPUs. A separate installer is available for download in the Zoom Download Center.”
