Apple Update: Apple M1 processors are now mainstream supported in Linux Kernel 6.2.

Apple Update: Apple M1 processors are now mainstream supported in Linux Kernel 6.2.


For fans of Apple, good tidings

The Linux operating system has been updated to version 6.2, and while those hoping for significant feature additions may be let down, one modification will likely catch the attention of many users.

Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux and its chief developer, explained in a brief blog post(opens in new tab) that there had been a few minor fixes prior to the release, adding, "I wasn't going to apply any last-minute patches that weren't aggressively pushed by maintainers."

Nothing stuck out as warranting delaying the release of 6.2, according to Torvalds, so any finishing touches "will have to show up for stable."

This may downplay the fact that Asahi Linux's developers' work has enabled Linux-based operating systems to be supported on a variety of Apple's proprietary silicon, including the M1 Pro, M1 Max, and M1 Ultra processors.

Apple's M-series chips have been excellent news for ardent macOS users, bringing notable performance improvements to all aspects of processing and efficiency, but they have created a barrier for other hardware apps.

The mainstream Linux support joins the recently announced availability of Windows 11 on Macs with M1 and M2 processors using Parallels 18.

Although this is encouraging news, it's unclear what it might imply for the future of the Linux roadmap. Although it lacks the massive financial support of Windows and macOS, its committed team of coders is likely to keep pushing for greater compatibility in upcoming releases.
