Microsoft has announced that an update to the OneDrive Mac app is coming shortly, and it will bring native Apple Silicon support.

In a blog post, Microsoft has announced general availability for an update that will allow its desktop OneDrive app to “run natively on Apple silicon.” The binary update will come with build 22.022 of OneDrive for Mac.

Previously in June 2021, an Apple Silicon-native version of OneDrive for Mac was teased by Microsoft. Users at the time were able to run an Intel-based version of OneDrive with the Rosetta 2 conversion tool built into Macs with Apple Silicon.

Apple Silicon was first unveiled at WWDC 2020 with developer kits containing the new hardware architecture shipping to app developers shortly after. The first Mac models with Apple Silicon arrived in November 2020.

Competing cloud storage provider Dropbox has also been testing an Apple Silicon-native version of their app since January 2022.
