Microsoft just announced that Microsoft 365 continues to be updated to operate natively on Macs operated by Apple’s new M1 nick

This is applicable to any or all core Office apps like Stand out, Outlook, PowerPoint, Word, and OneNote.

To become obvious, M1 Macs could run these apps formerly, however they were ran with the aid of Rosetta 2 – Apple’s translation software for Apple apps. This slightly hampered performance and battery existence.

Since Microsoft 365 runs natively, proprietors of M1 Macs should see improved performance and efficiency.

Proprietors of older Apple-based Macs should not worry since these new Office apps are Universal, so they’ll keep going normally on Apple Macs.

Microsoft also stated that they’re trying to bring native M1 support with other apps for example Teams.

The update to Microsoft 365 for M1 Macs is currently available. To update, visit the Mac Application Store striking the Updates tab. Alternatively, you can check out work app’s Help menu striking Look for Updates.
