Exploring ARM on the Desktop

In the next TCoffeeAndCode session at noon CDT on June 30th, we are taking a look at Delphi 10.4.2 on the new desktop Arm based Apple M1 CPU with both MacOS and Windows 10, with a little look at the recently announced Windows 11. I’ll be updating this post with more details of working with the Apple M1 processor and ARM on the desktop. I have an M1 powered Mac Mini running the latest Mac OS and the Windows 10 for ARM in a virtual machine.


If you are familiar with the RAD Studio Roadmap you know that the next major release of Delphi will include native support for the Arm based Apple M1 processor. We won’t be covering any of the unreleased versions of Delphi, but instead looking at the compatibility and interoperability of 10.4.2 today.
