Will Sky Safari 7 Pro for Mac be a Universal App? (Answer: SkySafari 6 Pro Works Fine On M1 Macs - Read On!)

Hi,

I currently have Sky Safari 6 Pro installed on my Late-2009 MacBook, but will soon upgrade to a M1-based MacBook.  Will Sky Safari 7 Pro run without Rosetta 2 on the new machine?

Thanks,

Bill

    Bill,

    SkySafari 6 Pro for MacOS works fine on M1 MacBooks.

    SkySafari 7 Pro for MacOS is not yet available, and I can not offer you an ETA at this time.

    Thanks!

    Thanks. So should I buy 6 or wait? A decision I have to make.

    I believe SS6 Pro for MacOS is 50% off right now.

    SS7 has no timeline for release ATM.

    When SS7 is released it will be 50% off for the first month of sale.

    So, you can get 2 for the price of 1 if you buy SS6 now, and SS7 upon release whenever that is

    Thanks!

    Thanks Keiron.

    I'm not an expert Mac user.  If I install my unused license for SS6 Pro on my M1 MacBook now, will the SS7 Pro installer "clean up" the no longer needed files from SS6 Pro?  If not, is there a recommended app or method to do this kind of housekeeping?

    Thanks,

    SS7 would create new folders.  The SS6 folders will remain.
