Microsoft has been testing a pre-release Apple silicon version of OneDrive since last year, and now the native version of the app is available for all OneDrive users.

"We're excited to announce that OneDrive sync for macOS will now run natively on Apple silicon. This means that OneDrive will take full advantage of the performance improvements of Apple silicon," Microsoft said in an announcement on the OneDrive blog that was first spotted by XDA Developers.

Microsoft said that the long-awaited feature is generally available starting with build 22.022.

With official support for the M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max chips, the OneDrive app will run faster and more efficiently on the latest Macs as the Rosetta 2 translation software will no longer be required.

I downloaded OneDrive version 22.022 (Standalone) from the Microsoft website and installed it... but it's still showing "Intel" under Kind in Activity Monitor.

Is there something special we need to do? Or should I get the Mac App Store version?

EDIT: I deleted OneDrive and downloaded the Mac App Store version. Same thing... still shows "Intel" even though I've got the most current version.

Maybe there should be a "How do we get it?" section in this article...

?

I have autoupdate turned off so I can see the apps that are getting updated. The App Store notified me it was ready a couple of hours ago.

I'm honestly glad to see the apple silicon transition going so well.
I'm almost at a point where all the software I use is apple silicon native.
The only major applications I need updated are After Effects (which has a perfectly usable native beta), and Animate.
After Effects will surely be made native in a non beta state this april/may, around the time when the whole suite gets its mid-year refresh.

I have version 22.033.0213.0002 (Silicon)

How did you get it?

I have 22.022 which the article says should be the Apple Silicon native version... but mine still says Intel. I've tried the App Store version and directly from Microsoft.

Oh wait... the App Store version says it was updated a week ago. I guess it's not ready...

I'm gonna give it a few days to get sorted out. We've waited this long...

Sad it too so long. Love how they blamed it on Apple, when they're the ones that had 18 months to make the update. Just like they do with Windows, the OS puts some functions to rest with time, in order to offer better options. And Microsoft was too lazy to bother updating. So instead they blamed Apple for their inaction.

IIRC there is a beta Silicon build but for something as mission critical to my job and freelance work as cloud storage, I am not comfortable running a beta of it so I'm waiting it out
I'm glad that they are finally doing it, but one would wonder why a company as big as dropbox is taking so long for something that's so fundamental to the user's needs. It was obvious Apple was moving into ARM fully.

Wonder how long Apple will keep Rosetta2 around. Back in the PPC->Intel transition it was only on 10.4 and 10.5, was removed from 10.6 Snow Leopard.

I bet a lot of companies are still slow with upgrading it cuz things work with Rosetta2.

Does this mean it won't have problems once 12.3 comes out? I heard there were kernel depreciation that can affect OneDrive functionality.

Given that Apple is still selling Intel Macs, hasn't completed their transition yet, and are rumored to have at least one intel refresh left, I'd like to imagine that Rosetta 2 still has a pretty long life ahead of it. I can't imagine it being EOLed until at least 1.5-2 years after Apple stops selling new Intel Macs. IMHO, it'd also be really nice if Apple actually just left Rosetta 2 around for as long as they can (kind of like how you could still run Aperture until very recently, and it still works now with some workarounds even on AS,) for compatibility purposes.
