Apple Silicon Now Supports Roblox: Steps to Install the Fully Native Version The popular gaming platform Roblox has announced compatibility with Apple Silicon, bringing an optimized gaming and creation experience to the owners of Apple Silicon Macs.


Roblox, an online gaming platform shaped by its community of players, offers its users access to millions of games and the ability to create and share their games. In an announcement post, William Gallegos, Roblox CEO and game designer, provided the download links for the new installers for both players and creators, praising the Studio’s performance on Apple Silicon as “very noticeable”.

To access the Roblox Studio for Apple Silicon Macs, users should launch the browser version using the Roblox mobile UI. However, some users have reported issues with these links.
