macOS Big Sur ARM Build

  • With the announcement from Apple to move from Intel to ARM what are the impacts for QT ?
    Will there be another "Kit" for macOS to build an arm version or is it already possible at the moment?

    Does anyone have information about that?

    Thank you.

    @euchkatzl a bit early to say definitely

    But from what I gathered, and I may be wrong here, it simplifies things for Qt devs.

    You only need one kit for iOS, iOS simulator and MacOS and macOS with the help of Rosetta 2 makes your new arm build run on intel Macs

    If you want to talk about development on an unreleased OS for unreleased hardware, then you should rather bring that to the interest mailing list.

    As for Rosetta2 it's the other way around, it shall make your x86_64 applications run on their ARM chip.
