In light of Apple Silicon, many Adobe CC power users on Mac OS will be worried about the future. Could we please have a general statement from Adobe about this? If we knew that Adobe are committed to, say Intel support until 2027, we could more easily decide to stay with Adobe. 

 

Please take this seriously. We have invested in iMac 2019's and would be pretty angry about having to throw them on the tip in five years.

 

many thanks,

Fredrik

Hi

Nobody here can answer that question for you, this is a user to user forum, you can of course post on the Adobe Feedback Forum which is monitored by Adobe engineers

I might note that Apple indicated the transition would take 2 years. That would imply that they have dropped Intel support completely by 2022, at least that's what it seems like to me. I can't speak for Adobe, but no way would they support for 5 years more. They are agressively moving to the latest systems only. None of this can be taken as a statement, or derived from one.

Yes that would be nice for Adobe to do.

But is seems Apple is not committed to stay with anything Intel for much longer. Now that Apple has made the turn to use their own CPU they will stop supporting Intel CPUs in the next, or 2 releases, of MacOS. And that will happen in the next 2 > 2.5 years (could also happen next year when they come out with the 11.1 {some Obscure Name} version of MacOS).

 

Adobe will then drop support for the Macs using the Intel CPUs just like they have stopped supporting older versions of OS X.

I also move this conversation over to the CC Services forum from the Download & Install forum, where it was Moved To from the "Using the Community" forum, as it has nothing to do with downloading or installing any Adobe Program or getting help using this forum system.
