Microsoft updates VS Code with native Apple Silicon chips support

Visual Studio Code, Microsoft’s open-source code editor has been updated to version 1.54, to finally offers native support for Apple Silicon chips found on the recently released MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Mini devices.

This is the first VS Code stable update that brings support for Apple's ARM64 chips, which will enable
users on Macs with M1 chips, and any other new Macs coming in the future with an ARM processor, to use VS Code without emulation with Rosetta and taking advantage of the full power of this new architecture which will give them better performance and longer battery life when they run VS Code. 


The default download of VS Code for macOS is now a Universal binary that runs natively on all Macs, and if you prefer to download an architecture-specific build (for intel or M1) with a smaller download size, you will find a download link on the Visual Studio Code Downloads page.

VS Code 1.54 comes alongside the Apple Silicon support, some new features and improvements like new themeable icons, timeline view and accessibility improvements, and brackets keyboard shortcuts support.
