Microsoft has announced plans to update its OneDrive app to work natively on Apple M1 Macs later in 2021, along with other planned performance improvements.
Later this year, Microsoft will update the OneDrive for Mac app to run natively on M1 machines. OneDrive is currently available with Rosetta 2 on M1 systems.
An update is also planned that would allow known folder movement (KFM) for macOS users. KFM allows people who use OneDrive to access files on different devices and applications, and the changes will be automatically synced to OneDrive.
If a user updates the device, KFM can automatically upload all new files to OneDrive. IT professionals can also use a silent property to automatically move the contents of the Desktop, Documents, and Pictures folders to One Drive.
Microsoft will also improve the OneDrive sync experience for macOS users, which will be built on Apple’s new file provider platform. The update will improve the Finder experience for OneDrive and OneDrive will be visible under Locations in the Finder sidebar.
IT professionals will be able to use OneDrive Sync management reports in the future. IT administrators will be able to view detailed reports on macOS users running OneDrive Sync and any errors they may experience.
At the end of June, iOS and iPadOS users will be able to edit Office documents that they have marked for offline use in the OneDrive mobile app. Edited files will sync to OneDrive once the user is back online, allowing users to pick up where they left off. from another device later.
