London, UK, November 24, 2020 – TeamViewer, a leading global provider of secure remote connectivity solutions, today releases TeamViewer 15.12 for macOS which already supports the new custom architecture known as Apple Silicon. The TeamViewer app is optimised to use the new architecture to the fullest without relying on the Rosetta 2 emulation. The latest TeamViewer client supports the Apple Silicon structure as well as the new macOS Big Sur, which will be the first operating system on Apple Silicon. The key benefits of using the latest version which supports Apple Silicon natively are improved performance and less energy consumption. Both of these benefits are key for apps that need to run as reliably as TeamViewer.
Christoph Schneider, Director Product Management at TeamViewer says: “We establish connections between a huge number of different devices based on all major operating systems. Ensuring horizontal connectivity is part of our DNA. Therefore, we are especially proud to run native on the Apple Silicon architecture right from the beginning.”
Apple provides the software Rosetta 2 along with Apple Silicon which enables other programs to run on the new architecture even if they are designed for intel processors. Older versions of TeamViewer for Mac will still work but rely on the Rosetta 2 emulation as well. For the best experience, we recommend using the latest TeamViewer build 15.12.
