The list of companies jumping on the Apple Silicon bandwagon is growing. Google just released a version of Chrome for Apple’s new computers with M1 processors, and Mozilla is developing a version of Firefox that will support the new chips as well.

Meanwhile, Adobe’s recent move to release a beta version of Photoshop for both macOS Big Sur devices with Apple M1 chips and Windows on ARM has had an unintended side effect – at least one developer who has loaded Windows 10 onto an old Microsoft Lumia smartphone can now run Photoshop on a phone.


Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

One reply on “Lilbits: Porting apps to ARM”

  1. Well known companies recompiling binaries of popular programs to work on a popular brand of computers, regardless of how differently that brand happens to be thinking at the moment (not actually very much), isn’t exactly surprising. In fact it would have been surprising if that didn’t happen.
    People suspect that the Pluton chip will be a lot like the Apples T2 chip.
    That is, they suspect it doesn’t help anything, lets microsoft spy on you (WHY DOES MY MOTHERBOARD NEED CHIP TO CLOUD SECURITY), and more importantly keeps you from booting anything but windows until someone jailbreaks it a couple years later. What was wrong with the TPM?
