Apple Silicon transition for Bookshelf by VitalSource

Apple Silicon transition for Bookshelf by VitalSource

As a long-time member of Apple's Developer Program, VitalSource is excited about the transition and potential of Apple Silicon. Our Developers are hard work making sure that Bookshelf will support the new Apple Silicon hardware shipping at the end of this month.

Bookshelf Support for Apple Silicon will happen in two phases; phase one is emulation support with Rosetta 2, and phase two will be native support for Apple Silicon.

We are currently expecting to ship a new version of Bookshelf in December to deliver phase one (emulation) support for Apple Silicon with another update in early 2021 that will bring native support for Apple Silicon.

Until then, Bookshelf will not work with Apple Silicon hardware; please use our Online reader or one of our native apps.

Please check back in the middle of December for more updates regarding Bookshelf support for Apple Silicon. If you have any questions or need assistance with using Bookshelf Online or with a mobile app, please contact VitalSource Support.
