In the code of the second beta version of macOS Big Sur 11.2, we found a mention of a new feature that prohibits the installation of iOS applications on Mac from the M1 if they were downloaded from outside the Mac App Store.
Now, Mac owners on Apple Silicon can install any iOS applications, and developers can’t stop it.
But things may change soon. In macOS, we found code related to APIs that manage digital rights on the system. It contains the following message:
This application could not be installed because the developer did not plan to run it on this platform.
The function does not work yet, so it is impossible to test its functionality. It is possible that Apple will activate it remotely when the final version of macOS Big Sur 11.2 is released.
In this case, owners of a Mac with an M1 will only be able to install iOS apps from the Mac App Store. Developers decide on which platform their programs can run, which is why many popular apps and services are not available on an ARM-based Mac. [9to5Mac]
