Apple M1 Support

As the new M1 chipset from apple seems to be changing the game in laptop/PC world, and is probably going to make its way into the AppleTV is zwift going to release an update to support the M1 chip?
At the moment it use the intel logic rather than Silicon.
There could be so much more to unlock from zwift rather than it using 1 core out of 8, and being a complete resource ■■■■■. Zwift is the only app that can make my macbook heat up!

Please! M1 performance is really sad at the moment.

I’ve got an M1 ipad pro and Zwift is not optimised for it at all, the graphics are as basic as they were on a 1st gen ipad pro I was using previously, its ridiculous

Any update from zwift about this? I could cook an egg on my laptop running it in rosetta mode

After 2 months not using Zwift, i come back to try Zwift again. No surprise i see nothing has been done to stop the overheating problem.
It’s ridiculous.
This wasnt an issue when the M1 first came out, the macbook was stone cold after 2h use. Now after 20 mins its ready to sear a steak.
Time to get a refund and move to Rouvy. Its a shame because the community in zwift is great, and its let down by the developers.
Ciao Zwift.

working fine on my M1 Air via rosetta, but I needed to change the graphic settings to a lower profile. with high settings I get also temp problems.
would be nice to see an M1 version soon. especially the battery usage is pretty high in rosetta mode.

The issue was that when then M1 came out, it worked well with Zwift, no high temps on the high settings. Battery lasted for ages.
Then they made some changes to include ultra and it messed it up. Frustrating.
Now zwift hasnt dont anything about it since.
I cancelled and moved to Rouvy. never looked back.
