  • Improved stability.

Anything big coming soon? I saw Eric Schlange testing rider highlight, for example.

Native Apple silicon support is big.


True. Good point. I didn’t realize it in my Windows mindset :smile:

Are iPad with M1 and M2 benefit from the update? Or is it Mac only?


Can you expand on this (i.e. percentages)? Does this include fixing which power ups get selected when turning in to climb portal from a free ride instead of doing the climb portal route?

Macs running on M1 and M2 chips benefit from code written natively for Apple silicon processors. Rosetta does not need to translate legacy code written for Intel processors, and that’s what’s driving the efficiency improvements.

iPhones and iPads have always been built on ARM chips, so Zwift apps for iOS have always been written for ARM architecture. We are looking at other ways to squeeze higher res settings on iOS devices with M1+ chips, but no specifics or timeline to share at this time.

– Is there a way to force this update if you’re on an M series Mac?

No. It’s a phased rollout. You could get it today or in a few days.

  • Large XP - approx. 10%
  • Small XP - approx. 65%
  • Rest is Feather power up.

Really guys? Instead of fixing the permanent results screen, you guys fixed a purely visual element. Really??


Probably different people involved.

Half the issue is all the people on this forum moaning about insignificant visuals.


Just installed the update on my Mac Mini M2. Running Zwift at 4K my FPS went up 10-15 FPS during a short test :slightly_smiling_face: Hopefully the Ultra Profile will be available in the future.


It’s great to see Zwift finally running native on macOS. Hopefully a straightforward port from there to iPadOS - the old mobile port we have has been limited to Basic and 30fps for a very long time!

Nope, it’s not straightforward for reasons explained above.

Still High Profile running at 4K with 120FPS and full riders shadows :slight_smile: This is getting better and better :slight_smile:

Really? You’re complaining about this?

One possible explanation: perfect task to give to a new hire, without risking that they might screw up an important feature.

Reasons explained above? Think I’m missing it, could you link?

Hope Mac and iPad builds get access to Ultra graphics soon, too, given Enrico’s 4K/120fps results above!
