As part of the announcement of new Mac computers earlier this week, Apple mentioned that Adobe plans to release versions of its software that are compatible with Apple’s new M1 chip. It turns out that this is good news as the company cannot officially support emulation through Rosetta 2 on these devices.
Rosetta 2 is an operating system emulation tool included with macOS Big Sur that runs apps compiled for the Intel chipset on Macs with Apple silicon.
On Adobe’s compatibility page, the company definitely states that while Apple has made it clear that many apps will continue to run with the Rosetta 2 emulation on the M1 chip – and even says that some apps may even run better than on native Intel Chips – Adobe Lightroom Classic is not considered compatible with this method.
Warning: Running Adobe apps in Rosetta 2 emulation mode on Apple devices with Apple Silicon M1 processors is not officially supported. Native support is planned.
Despite this warning, Adobe states that there are no specific known issues running Lightroom Classic 10 under Rosetta 2 emulation on Apple devices with M1 processors on macOS BigSur (version 11). While it’s a process the company can’t officially support, it’s likely still possible to continue using Lightroom and Photoshop through Rosetta 2 for the time being.
In a comment too PetaPixel After the Apple presentation, Adobe confirmed that Apple M1 has native support.
“We’re excited to bring CC apps to Apple Silicon devices, including native support for Lightroom next month and Photoshop in early 2021,” said an Adobe representative. “With regard to Lightroom Classic, the team is working on a native version of Lightroom Classic for Apple Silicon that will be released next year. We’re also committed to continuing to support Intel-based Macs. ”
No specific timeline has been provided for new Adobe apps for the M1 chip.
It should also be noted that Adobe states that older versions of Adobe Lightroom are not compatible with macOS Big Sur:
Unsupported versions of Lightroom Classic were not developed or tested for MacOS Big Sur (version 11). Older versions use 32-bit licensing components and installers and cannot be installed, uninstalled, or activated after upgrading to macOS Big Sur. If you’ve already upgraded to macOS Big Sur, uninstall older versions using the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool.
Currently, current Creative Cloud subscribers are unlikely to run into problems on any of the three new Apple Macs, although the software company understands they should do so with caution. Adobe has likely been unable to fully test all possible scenarios with its software and Apple hardware, and while no known issues can be reported at this time, some may arise.
