Adobe announced that the availability of the Adobe Photoshop Arm Beta Version for the new Macs with Apple Silicon chips reaches the first users who have bought MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini. It is quite a surprise since the final version was expected in early 2021. According to Apple said in last week’s presentation, in which there was no mention of any beta.
But probably the biggest surprise is that Adobe has also announced the first beta of Photoshop for Windows 10 on ARM; the version of Windows 10 that runs on the Surface Pro X and some other computer. The platform needs a boost at the professional application level; and Adobe is key so that at least at the laptop level the tables begin to turn on the platform.

Details Of Adobe Photoshop Arm Beta Version
The first thing Adobe says about both versions is that they are not officially supported. That is, they are launched so that users can test the native performance of their chips in Photoshop; but in the event of any problem, Adobe cannot be asked to solve the problems.
The bad news about this beta is that it is not just beta for performance, but also for feature availability. Adobe has communicated the list of shortcomings; and some important ones such as Camera RAW, motion reduction, Photomerge, multiple filters, etc. are missing. The shortcomings are present in both versions, and Adobe promises to add them little by little. If the final version arrives in 2021, as they have promised, it means that they will soon be incorporated.
Regarding the method to access the Adobe Photoshop Arm beta version; Adobe indicates that they will be installed only through the Creative Cloud desktop application. So, it will only be available to subscribers of the suite or people who are in a trial period.
