Claris FileMaker Pro and Notability app have announced native support for M1 Apple Silicon

A subsidiary of Apple, Clairs (a custom iPhone and iPad creating platform), and Notability (a popular note-taking app) have announced native support for M1 Apple Silicon to offer enhanced performance.

Launched in 2020, the custom-built M1 Apple Silicon now powers the 13-inch MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, Mac mini, 24-inch iMac, and iPad Pro models (11-inch and 12.9-inch). So far, the Apple Silicon has received great reviews for delivering incredible high performance and revolutionary battery life. Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Technologies, Johny Srouji calls first-generation Apple Silicon a processor like no other.

“There has never been a chip like M1, our breakthrough SoC for the Mac. It builds on more than a decade of designing industry-leading chips for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, and ushers in a whole new era for the Mac. When it comes to low-power silicon, M1 has the world’s fastest CPU core, the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer, and the amazing machine learning performance of the Apple Neural Engine. With its unique combination of remarkable performance, powerful features, and incredible efficiency, M1 is by far the best chip we’ve ever created.”
