Preliminary Apple M1 Support Added To Latest Linux Kernel

Linux Torvalds has announced availability of Linux kernel 5.13 release candidate that adds preliminary support for Apple’s M1 system-on-chip along with a number of improvements to the operating system itself, reports 9to5Linux.com

The most interesting addition to Linux kernel 5.13 is preliminary support for Apple’s M1 SoC, something that developers have been working on for months now. While Linux does support Arm and can run on various SoCs such as the Raspberry Pi, Apple’s M1 is considerably different from other processors, so making Linux run on this chip was a tough challenge.
