The Mac M1 has lost unofficially supported iOS apps

Apple has done a great deal of work by designing its built-in processor, along with the first generation M1. In particular, it is necessary to manage the entire utility ecosystem.

Starting a new type of processor is no small feat. In addition to the technical challenge it represents, we need to think about all the applications that depend on these processors. For this first chip it was time for Apple to develop and develop its own software Apple silicone Baptized M1 but we had to use Some artifacts For the benefit of users.

Apple is blocking the installation of iOS applications aimed at Mac M1

To help fill the initial shortage of native apps created for the M1 chip, Apple has allowed users to install iOS applications on the M1 Max. While iOS apps are not optimized for computers, laptops or desktops, it did fill a real void, of course only temporarily.

A change that attracts some teeth

That being said, users who have used this trick to install iOS apps will be disappointed to learn that this is no longer possible, or at least not soon. Several reports indicate that Apple has made changes to the server page to prevent unofficially supported iOS applications, applications not designed for the Mac, from downloading and installing the M1 Mac.

For those of you who do not understand what we are talking about, before this change, you will know that users can install iOS applications on their Mac through sites like iMazing. This means that even if a developer chooses not to make their application available on the Mac M1, users can download and install them. With these changes, Cupertino is making these bypass methods impossible.

It is difficult to understand why Apple made this change. Installing unintended applications for the M1 chip may be far less than a better experience for users, which is obviously not what the Apple brand wants. Or it may cause security concerns. Whatever the reason for the end, the owners of the Mac M1 can no longer do this.
