Apple Chip

Alfred Universal Build

You'll be excited to hear that we've been running a Universal build of Alfred on the Apple DTK using macOS Big Sur for some time now, and we're thrilled to say that the performance of Alfred running natively on the Apple M1 chip is remarkable.

Right now, you can keep using the main Alfred download or in-app update, which uses Big Sur's Rosetta 2 and will continue to give you astounding performance.

Alternatively, if you're lucky enough to have a new Apple M1 Mac, you can use the new Universal build, which will give you all the benefits of the new architecture.

Download Alfred 4 Universal

Version 4.2.1 b1186 - 4.9MB, macOS 10.11+, 64-bit Intel, Apple M1

Please note that this build only benefits Macs with the M1 chip. If you're using an Intel Mac, continue to use the main Alfred update. In the future, the main build for all users will be Universal.
