Does anyone know if Canon utilities, and DPP4 in particular, run on Apples M1 yet? Specifically the Mac Mini.
Thanks.

Howdy!

Did you take a look at the canon support pages?
I am not in the Mac fraction, but when I went to my German homepage and chose DPP I could see these OS beeing supported:

macOS Big Sur 11.0 seems to be not supported by DDP yet.

I wonder what the difference is between OS X, Mac OS X, and macOS? That one shows Big Sur.

It’s just the evolution of the naming convention that Apple has been using for their “computer” OS. They started inserting ‘Mac’ and ‘Mac OS’ to differentiate it more clearly(even though they are sort of unifying them) from ‘iOS’, ‘watchOS’, etc. But more directly to your question, the older OS’s were referred to as OS X (insert nickname and point version) and the latest are macOS (insert nickname and point version).

They aren’t unifying the OS’s, they are moving to ever more format relevant OS’s, the iPad OS the biggest benefit of having OS’s that are device specific, they were castrated all the time they ran phone firmware, now they have their own OS they are fantastic tools.

They are making big efforts to vertically integrate the OS’s, but that isn’t the same as unifying them.

I think that’s why RunAndGun wrote “sort of unifying them”. I would consider his statement to be as relevant as yours.

That might be, but using the word "unifying" seems counter to what they are actually doing, bringing out more, different, and diverse versions.

I think we’re arguing semantics(Not that I don’t like doing that at times, as some of my posts prove). I meant it in the sense that they are looking and behaving more alike with similar/same features and able to seamlessly move data between devices(like text, email, pictures, documents you are working on, etc.), not that they are literally the same. But now with ”Apple Silicone” and the transition to moving all devices to ARM processors, everything can be more closely and tightly integrated and I’m sure the OS’s will start to have even more in common in their underpinnings, while still being optimized for the specific device.
