Acrobat Reader DC was my go to PDF reader on my old Macbook Pro, but I recently bought a brand new Macbook Pro 2020 (M1) laptop running Big Sur 11.1 and I'm so frustrated and mad that Adobe has not released a compatible version of Acrobat for this system! I tried installing acrobat and it just froze during the install and I couldn't cancel it or pause it - I had to hard shutdown my brand new laptop in order to get rid of the frozen downloading file. 

I now have to go search for a new PDF reader in the meantime - please release a compatible version of Acrobat soon, because this is the future of Macbooks and you will lose a massive client base if you do not provide a compatible application. I find it ridiculous how outdated so many of Adobe's applications are and how difficult they are to run on Macbooks sometimes. Get with the times. 

If anyone finds a workaround to use Acrobat DC on this system, please let me know.

Please see thread at https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader/reader-mac-m1-silicon/td-p/11778929?page=1 which fully answers your question! And yes, an ARM processor compatible version is under development; it isn't as simple as you may think!
