6.83 FAQ-1099 Can I install Origin on M1 MacBook?

Last Update: 6/20/2022

Yes, you can install and run Origin on a Mac with an M1 chip.

  • You will need to use M1 chip-compatible virtual machine software to run Origin on a Mac. We strongly recommend Parallels Desktop.
  • Furthermore, because Origin is Windows-based, you must install Windows in the virtual machine.
  • Because the M1 chip is ARM-based, you must install the Windows 11 on ARM.

If, after the above guidance is followed, Origin still CRASHES on start up, Refer to this page to fix the problem.
