I just updated my Macbook pro (13-inch, M1, 2020) from Big Sur 11.6.6 to 11.6.7 and now, all the Intel apps require Rosetta. Whatsapp info

Rosetta request

  • Why such a big change between two minor versions?
  • Is there a way to avoid installing Rosetta?
  • Can I downgrade back to 11.6.6?
  • Could it be that those apps are Universal apps but are configured to open using Rosetta (see support.apple.com/HT211861)? Intel-only apps always require Rosetta on an Apple silicon Mac.

  • Unfortunately, they are "Intel app" but they opened seamlessly until the last update. yesterday

    If they are Intel apps and they worked the they ran through rosetta. Perhaps a cache has changed

The application you have shown is Intel only. It MUST have run under Rosetta before.

A point update should not normally require a re-installation of Rosetta, but it's nothing to worry about.

A Universal Binary application will show Get Info like this:

Keep watching out for updates to your apps, as developers produce Universal Binaries for both Intel and ARM.

  • After reinstalling Rosetta, everything is working well... yesterday
