Do you use Dropbox to keep your stuff in the cloud? If you use an M1 Mac, you’ve probably noticed that Dropbox isn’t working on it. However, that’s changing, as Dropbox is rolling out support for Apple’s new chips in beta.
It certainly took Dropbox long enough to bring its popular cloud storage service to Apple’s Silicon, but it’s better late than never. For M1 Mac users, this is a welcomed update.
Having a native app means Dropbox will run faster and consumes less power than a non-native app, so this is a significant update that’s more than welcomed.
It’s important to note that the M1 support is in the beta version of Dropbox, so you’ll need to download and install that version to get full ARM support. If you go to Dropbox’s website and download the main version of the app, it won’t have support yet.
However, since M1 support has made its way to the beta, it’s only a matter of time until it comes to the final app.
