Support for M1 Mac build machines?


We started using Semaphore CI as CI/CD environment for both Android and iOS clients.

Lately I’ve been hearing a lot about the new M1 chips’ excellent performance in terms of compilation and so on. It made me wonder whether you guys are considering adapting M1 machines as MacOS CI/CD environment.

It would be great if we could utilize the power of M1 and reduce some build time. To be honest iOS builds take significantly longer time than our Android counterpart.

Do you guys have any plans or thoughts?

Hi there,

Thanks for sharing this idea with us. I’ve already forwarded your input to the infrastructure team as it does sound very beneficial in the long run. We’ll keep you updated with more information when the review and benchmarks for the M1 chip have been performed.

Thank you for your patience.
