Using Apple Silicon

I recently got a 16” Macbook Pro with the M1 Mac Pro. The following are my continuous reviews, and things that I had to do to overcome issues I encountered with this laptop:

The problem is with CLI applications, especially with CLI tools installed with Homebrew. To overcome this issue, we need to install 2 versions of HomeBrew: one for Intel and one for Apple Silicon.
