Like the original Rosata technology, the Rosata 2 allows users to run MacOS applications from one platform to another – this time translating Intel applications into the ARM architecture of the M1 chip. While I don’t expect Rosetta to go away anytime soon, Apple may disable it in some regions as suggested by OS KOS 11.3 beta codes.
IOS developer and MCummers Contributor Steve Moser recently shared on Twitter what he found in the third beta of Makos Big Sur 11.3, which has been released to developers today. Apple Play has added a new code to the Rosetta API that mentions removing this feature in some regions.
The code says, “Rosata will be removed after this update is installed. The second string clarifies that Rosetta 2 is being removed from the M1 Mac in certain regions.
Rosetta is no longer available in your area. Applications for Rosata’s requirement will no longer run.
At least for now, it doesn’t look like Apple has disabled Play Rozta in any of the regions, and when will the company do so, or if there’s no proof. The message may have been added only as a precaution against any restrictions the company may face in the future. But what will this ban be?
Back in 2017, when Microsoft started working on Windows 10 for ARM, the company announced an emulation of the x86 application, similar to the Apple Pal. However, Intel threatened Microsoft by claiming that the x86 architecture had proprietary technologies and could not be replicated on other processors without approval.
Although Windows 10 was able to simulate 32-bit applications from the ARM, x86 architecture, 64-bit application emulation was recently added to an insider preview build – which may be related to Intel’s patents. Rose Pal may be ready to face a similar controversy with its Rosetta 2 technology.
On a related note, Moser also found changes that have controlled changes to the Apple Play game Makos Big Sur 11.3 Beta 3, as well as a new option to allow connections with friends in the Game Center.
The OS Cos Big Sur 11.3 also includes a new warranty feature under the Mac section and a new Aut Topplay feature in iOS Pull Music, which previously debuted in iOS 14, and some more minor changes, including a few tweaks to the Touch Ternative Pintlists menu.
