We know how long you’ve been waiting for this! We’ve addressed all those posts on our 4K Download community subreddit and emails sent to our support team to finally release our new 4K Video Downloader+ that natively supports Apple Silicon chip.
This update brings a seamless and optimised experience for users on the latest Apple devices, making your audio and video downloading process smoother than ever before. So, in comparison with the old generation of 4K Video Downloader, the plus version starting from the 1.4.3 release now has a dedicated installation option: the macOS with Apple chip arm64 Installer, which is available on our download page.
Why This Matters
Native support for arm64 architecture means that 4K Video Downloader+ has been specifically optimised to leverage the performance benefits of Apple's latest chip, especially in terms of quicker startup following each update installation. This is why we encourage all of you who still use the older generation of 4K Video Downloader on Apple devices to migrate to 4K Video Downloader+; it's free.
