Apple's M1 native support
1,438 views (last 30 days)
Are there any updates on when will Apple's M1 chip be natively supported by Matlab?
Any chance this could be on realease 2021b?
I had to go back to an Intel based Mac due the frequent crashes (3 to 4 times a day) experienced while running Matlab 2021a on a 16 GB 8-core M1 Macbook Pro with Big Sur.
I understand that the native version is under development, but it's been months since so.
Could someone please provide some insights on this? It's really causing some problems to some of us ...
Thanks in advance.

I'm running R2021b on a new MB Pro M1 with 32 GB and macOS 12.01. So far MATLAB is simply running as intended and seems to handle large numerical inverses that push MATLAB to 29 GB of ram usage better than the prior intel MB Pro. The times required for calculations tend to be nearly a wash - within 20-30% - even with this non-native version. It has not crashed. Below are the results of the bench command (these are not as good as the intel MB Pro - but they are not terrible). I am eagerly awaiting the native version
