Apple announced new computers in November 2020 with a new M1 chip, also known as Apple Silicon.  These computers are not yet fully compatible with Photo Mechanic 6 or Photo Mechanic Plus. We will make sure that Photo Mechanic 6 and Photo Mechanic Plus will run on the new M1 devices with Rossetta 2 soon. However, native support for the speed of the new chipset will take longer. 


We do not recommend that you purchase these new devices specifically to run Photo Mechanic Plus or Photo Mechanic 6 at this time. While we will be looking at updating our software to run natively on Macs with the new M1 chips, we have no timeline for when this will happen. We will make any announcements on our forum and our Twitter and Facebook accounts.
