Microsoft OneDrive Gains Native Support for Apple Silicon Macs
Microsoft has been testing a pre-release Apple silicon version of OneDrive since last year, and now the native version of the app is available for all OneDrive users.
"We're excited to announce that OneDrive sync for macOS will now run natively on Apple silicon. This means that OneDrive will take full advantage of the performance improvements of Apple silicon," Microsoft said in an announcement on the OneDrive blog that was first spotted by XDA Developers.
Microsoft said that the long-awaited feature is generally available starting with build 22.022.
With official support for the M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max chips, the OneDrive app will run faster and more efficiently on the latest Macs as the Rosetta 2 translation software will no longer be required.

Scroll down to the Rolling Out section and you can download the Apple Silicon version of OneDrive.
All I need is a native Teams client then my journey to the darkside is complete.
Is there something special we need to do? Or should I get the Mac App Store version?
EDIT: I deleted OneDrive and downloaded the Mac App Store version. Same thing... still shows "Intel" even though I've got the most current version.
Maybe there should be a "How do we get it?" section in this article...
So you're staying with the Intel version then? Why?
I understand that you probably don't like OneDrive - and that's ok. But why the negativity when Microsoft actually do something good? We are many who work in a Microsoft environment, but on Macs. Generally I find that the Mac version of O365 works way better than the PC one.
So why is it a bad thing that OneDrive is native AS now?
I'm happy, my entire workday is more or less spent with OneDrive - so now I need Teams too, then I'm pretty set!
