iPhone and iPad apps can now run on Mac computers with the new M1 chip MacBook Air 2020

Apple had a next-gen processor chip and three new computer models to show off at its ‘One More Thing’ event yesterday, and we also got some more details on macOS Big Sur, rolling out tomorrow (November 12).

The latest macOS upgrade will be able to run iPhone and iPad apps natively, Apple has revealed, as long as the Mac is also running the Apple silicon M1 chip. At the moment, that’s the new MacBook Air, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro, and the new Mac mini.
