Those interested in running Linux on their M1 Macs may soon be able to do so. Work has been underway for some time to make Linux available for M1 Mac devices, and developers confidently believe they will have something ready as early as June.
According to a Phoronix report, it is claimed that the Linux 5.13 cycle could be the period when support for Apple Silicon is expected to be added. However, it is suggested that a complete Linux experience will not be offered initially.

The first version could implement functions such as UART, SMP, DeviceTree, and others, so this port could initially only be proof that Linux is possibly compatible with M1 chips.
The announcement comes after Corellium successfully ported Ubuntu to M1 Macs earlier this year, even though it wasn’t the main Linux kernel.
