Anyone know when we can expect a build for the Mac that supports Apple Silicon? These are called Universal apps on the Mac and should give a speed boost, though perhaps most of the speed boost will be from the higher memory bandwidths and SSD speeds—benefitting both Universal and Intel builds. I am not in the Logos Desktop Beta Testing group, so perhaps even the current beta is Universal.

I am also interested if anyone has tried running Logos under Rosetta 2 from Monterey version of the MacOS. and whether or not they saw any issues. Monterey is coming out next week.

FL has been mum on anything past Rosetta compatibility. It's obviously something they are working towards given that it's inevitable but the timetable isn't fixed. I would not expect anything until Logos 10.

There's no reason why L9 won't work on Monterey. I am sure they've tested it.

Thanks, that echos my thoughts exactly.

Logos works fine with Monterey.

I use both an Apple 2020 M1 MacBook Air and a 2020 16" MacBook Pro Intel machine (maxed out). I compared Logos' performance on each machine here: (https://community.logos.com/forums/t/196476.aspx?PageIndex=1).

I've ordered a new 16" MacBook Pro, which I'll receive around Thanksgiving. I plan to repeat the tests with the new machine, and report on the performance.
