Logitech has introduced full native support for Apple Silicon machines in the latest beta version of its Logi Option+ software.

The Logi Option+ app allows users to manage or customize their Logitech peripherals like mice and keyboards. Users, for example, are able to map custom commands to a mouse's buttons or configure keys to perform routine tasks.

Version 0.90 of the Logi Option+ beta brings support to the M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max chips, according to the beta's release notes. The update, released on Feb. 12, is available on Logitech's Logi Options+ beta page.

The native Apple Silicon support should result in a smoother experience, better performance, and improved battery life than attempting to run Logi Options+ via Rosetta 2.

Options+ itself is an update on Logitech's current Options software, which also allowed users to customize and manage their accessories. Logitech promises that the new app will be easier to use and will sport new features when it's officially released.

It supports a range of popular Logitech devices, including variations of the MX Master 3 mouse, the MX Keys keyboard, and other Logitech-branded accessories.

The Logi Options+ will also be free to use for Logitech users when it exits beta.
