OneDrive-Mac-M1-Microsoft-Example

Microsoft is preparing to bring full support of its OneDrive app on Apple’s M1 64bit ARM chipset. According to the company, the support will be available in preview during December. A full release is scheduled for “early next year”.

The announcement was made as part of Microsoft’s November roadmap for OneDrive, which details all new features coming to the app in the coming months.

Apple originally launched the M1 silicon in its 2020 range of Mac devices, so OneDrive support has been a long time coming. Microsoft is building of the 64-bit version of the file sharing and cloud storage app it launched on Windows 10 back in August.

KFM and Files On Demand

Also on macOS, Microsoft says OneDrive will receive the Known Folder Move (KFM) feature on the platform, also early next year.

“Known Folder Move (KFM) for all macOS users will be available early next year, giving them the ability to keep their Desktop, Documents, and Pictures folders protected by syncing them to the cloud with OneDrive. This means that people using OneDrive with macOS Monterey can continue using folders they’re familiar with to do their daily work and be assured that their data is backed up and secure,” the company said.

Microsoft will also bring new features to the Files On Demand feature to macOS, specifically for macOS 12 and Monterey. It will sync with Apple’s new File Finder feature for those platforms, with OneDrive appearing in the “Finder” sidebar. Microsoft says the integration will start rolling out early next year.
