NordVPN just got a big update that allows it to run natively on Apple Silicon machines for the first time. The new version promises better performance and an improved user experience on the latest Mac models with an M1 chip.

NordVPN is a leading virtual private network provider that can bolster your online security by hiding your real IP address and keeping your browsing habits under wraps. It’s always been pretty stellar on Apple devices.

And now NordVPN is even better on M1 Mac models, thanks to a new update that adds Apple Silicon support.

NordVPN now plays nicely with Apple M1 chips

With true Apple Silicon support, NordVPN now runs natively on M1 machines. That means it doesn’t need to be translated in real-time, like other apps written for Intel chips, and overall performance is even better.

“We reworked the NordVPN app to run natively on M1 Macs, which will optimize app performance and user experience for users with newer devices,” said Vykintas Maknickas, product strategist at NordVPN.

“Additionally, when reworking our app to run natively on different operating systems, we kept in mind the switchover process and maintained the user at the forefront of our minds.”

What’s great about this update is that it doesn’t require you to remove NordVPN and reinstall it. Simply update to the app’s latest release, and you’ll have full M1 chip support and all the improvements that come with it.
