Stata for Mac with Apple Silicon

Update (23 November 2020): We stated earlier that nonuniversal versions of Stata/MP would not run on Macs with Apple Silicon. This was based on our experience with attempting to run a nonuniversal version of Stata/MP on an Apple developers kit that contained an A14 SOC (system on chip) instead of an M1 SOC. However, we have since obtained a production Mac Mini with an M1 SOC and have found that nonuniversal versions of Stata/MP will in fact run on Macs with Apple Silicon.

Apple has announced the first set of Macs that are transitioning to Apple Silicon. Apple claims that Macs with Apple Silicon promise better performance and longer battery life than the previous generations of Macs. This will be of great interest to our Stata-for-Mac users, many of whom use Mac laptops.

We will be working to support the new Macs as they transition from Intel processors to Apple Silicon and will continue our support of Macs with Intel processors as well.
