ExpressVPN is one of the best VPN services out there, with a simple design and all the features you’d expect. As of today, ExpressVPN is now optimized for Mac computers with M1 and M2 chipsets.
Newer Mac computers with Apple’s own silicon chipsets, like the new MacBook Air M2 or 24-inch iMac, continue to support software built for older Intel-based Macs. However, the Rosetta 2 compatibility layer is slower than the software built for the newer chips. ExpressVPN has now followed many other apps and now offers a version that runs natively on Apple Silicon Macs.
The company said in a blog post: “ExpressVPN users with Apple Silicone Macs can now enjoy the full effects of improvements to the reliability, performance, speed and battery life of their computers, simply updating to the latest version of our Mac app. The ExpressVPN app is now a universal binary, so it works just as well on newer Apple Silicon Macs as it does on older Intel-based Macs.
Mac computers with Apple’s own chips have been around for about two years, so many popular apps and services are now fully optimized for them. In addition to ExpressVPN, OneDrive was updated for Apple Silicon in February, Discord was updated in March, and Adobe’s long-awaited update to After Effects (the company’s video editor) arrived in April.
