Announcing general availability of Amazon EC2 M1 Mac instances for macOS

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) M1 Mac instances are now generally available (GA). Built on Apple Silicon Mac mini computers and powered by the AWS Nitro System, Amazon EC2 M1 Mac instances deliver up to 60% better price performance over x86-based EC2 Mac instances for building and testing iOS and macOS applications. You still enjoy the same elasticity, scalability, and reliability that the secure, on-demand AWS infrastructure has offered to millions of customers for more than a decade. EC2 M1 Mac instances also enable native Arm64 macOS environments for the first time on AWS to develop, build, test, deploy, and run applications for Apple devices. As a developer who is rearchitecting your macOS applications to natively support Apple Silicon Macs, you can now provision Arm64 macOS environments within minutes, dynamically scale capacity as needed, and benefit from pay-as-you-go pricing to enjoy faster builds and convenient distributed testing. To learn more or get started, see Amazon EC2 Mac Instances.
