Linux Will Be Available On Computers With Apple M1 Chip With New Update Coming In June
Adaptation work continues for the new Apple M1 chips, which are highly appreciated for their high performance. Linux, which can be used with unlicensed software cheats, will soon receive official M1 chip support.
Apple’s latest M1 chip laptop and desktop series have made a name for themselves with their speed that surpasses Intel chips. Many macOS users waited for their favorite apps to be adapted to the M1, while others waited for Linux support to arrive.
With the release of Linux’s 5.13 kernel, M1 chips are expected to be available with Linux. The hard work of the software developers in this area continues at full speed. If nothing goes wrong, Linux is expected to arrive on Apple M1 devices around June.
Support is not the definitive solution
M1 chip support, which is expected to arrive in Linux in June, will likely have flaws when it first arrives. But of course flawed but official support will be safer than flawed hacks. Although the early stages of support will not be able to meet all the requests of users, this can be considered the beginning of a necessary feature.
Studies have been ongoing since the beginning of the year
The first Apple M1 Linux version to reports will have features that provide key functions such as UART, interrupt, SMP and DeviceTree. There will also be a SimpleFB based frame buffer, but providing a working 3D video acceleration support seems a bit difficult.
Since earlier this year, several Apple M1 Linux kernel patches have been made for the basic drivers required to run the Mac Mini, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Mini models. This much work is enough for the support to come out in June. Development work will continue to come for months, and Linux will become available on M1 chips with fewer and fewer problems.
