According to reputed tech website MacRumors, installing the upcoming macOS 11.3 update on the M1 Mac may cause Rosetta 2 to be deleted in one or more regions of the world. In the third beta version of macOS 11.3 released to developers today, MacRumors editor Steve Moser found a new string in the beta code, saying “Rosetta will be removed after installing this update.” Another new string reads: “Rosetta is no longer available in the region. Applications that require Rosetta will no longer run.”
We already know that Rosetta 2 can allow Macs with Apple chips (such as M1 chips) to run x86 applications built for Macs with Intel processors . When a user opens an application compiled only for a Mac computer with an Intel processor, the Rosetta 2 translation layer will work in the background and automatically translate the application when the application runs for the first time, so as to be compatible with Macs equipped with Apple chips.
It is unclear why macOS 11.3 may delete Rosetta 2 on M1 Macs in some regions, but it may involve legal or copyright reasons. Apple did not immediately respond to any media’s request for comment.
In addition, the code shows that the third beta version of macOS 11.3 also adds some new settings, including mapping the gamepad buttons to the keyboard layout, but it is not entirely clear how this might be used/implemented.
So guys are you excited about these changes? We are cautiously waiting that Rosetta is retained in our country. This is because without this translation layer the key appeal of the M1 Based macs would be lost. So guys do let us know your thoughts on the same in the comments section below!
