macOS 11 Big Sur
As of January 15, 2021:
- 205 apps in Setapp are working smoothly on macOS 11
- 7 apps have issues, but fixes are on the way
- 2 apps (xMind and Declutter) are not compatible with Big Sur
If you come across an issue with an app from Setapp on Big Sur, we’d be happy if you let us know.
Apple silicon ARM (M1) processors
To start with, Setapp itself runs natively on Macs with Apple silicon.
Many of our developer partners have proudly announced the release of apps with native M1 chip support in Setapp. According to release notes, by January 15, 2021, these apps are:
- Asset Catalog Creator Pro
- CleanShot X
- Default Folder X
- Magic Window Air
- Movist Pro
- News Explorer
- One Switch
- Time Out
- Wifi Explorer
For non-Silicon apps, macOS provides a smooth built-in software translator. Rosetta 2 converts the Intel-based apps at the first start so that users with new Macs could work with these applications comfortably.
Unfortunately, as of January 13, 2021, these apps from Setapp will not open on Macs with the M1 chips:
- Coherence X
- Disk Drill
- iBoysoft NTFS for Mac
- n-Track Studio
We hope all the apps in Setapp will work and have native Apple Silicon support in the nearest future — and we're doing the best we can.
