deviceTRUST + Apple M1 support for Citrix Workspace

Apple M1, the first and the most powerful chip designed specifically for the Mac. Amongst all of the powerful features there are a couple of things to note when using the intel based Citrix Workspace app alongside deviceTRUST on an M1 capable Mac.

Citrix added support for the Apple silicon M1 chip in Workspace version 2101. In order to use 3rd party virtual channels with Workspace there is a dependency on Rosetta 2 being installed. Without Rosetta these virtual channels may not work in Citrix Workspace app on macOS Big Sur 11.0 and later. More information on this can be found here.

Rosetta 2

Rosetta is Apple’s tool for translating code intended for Intel processors so that the M1 chip understands it. Rosetta 2 should mean that most existing Mac apps will run on the new M1 Macs. More information on how to install Rosetta on your Mac can be found here.

If you are intending to run deviceTRUST on an M1 mac

  • Ensure you have Workpspace app version 2101 or later
  • Install Rosetta 2
