Is Articulate 360 compatible with the Apple M1 chip?

While we don’t have plans to release native Mac versions of Articulate 360 desktop apps, here’s what we currently know about M1 support in virtual environments.

Apple Boot Camp isn't available on M1 Macs, whereas VMWare Fusion and Parallels are developing versions of their software for M1 Macs. We’ll let you know as soon as we have more details. For now, Macs that use Intel processors will run Windows virtual environments without any issues.
