Seems to be just another ARM CPU. The MacOS will be optimized to use it. It's always confused me why people buy Mac hardware and pay the Mac tax so that their OS is super hyper optimised for the limited hardware that MacOS will run on, then replace it with something else..........
Could boot the ARM version of Ubuntu and test

This post is for people who have bought the product and their experiences.

If you do not own an Apple product with M1 chip, please do not post.

Previous versions of Apple products for instance had security features that had to be disabled,
before a different OS could be installed.

You probably better ask at a Apple forum or a hardware forum.

If you only accept answers from people owning an Apple product with M1 chip, then you will have to wait some time, until somebody purchases such device, decides to try Ubuntu on it and then posts his experience. I would not expect this to happen in the foreseeable future. Good luck.

Can you help with this problem?
