According to a report in 9to5Mac, Apple has turned off users' ability to unofficially install iOS apps onto their M1 Macs.
"Apple has officially flipped the server-side switch to implement this change. This means that it is no longer possible to use an app such as iMazing to side load unsupported applications from your iPhone or iPad to your M1 Mac," the report mentioned on Friday.
While iOS apps are still available in the Mac App Store, many apps, such as Netflix, Instagram and Facebook don't have their developer's approval to be run on macOS.
To date, there was a workaround that allowed the use of third-party software to install the apps without having to use the Mac App Store.
Apple has now remotely disabled it.
