October 19th, 2021 I received an email notification about a new $2,100 one time sponsorship through GitHub Sponsors program. Someone took me up on my offer to build Homestead on Apple Silicon. I'm happy to announce that Laravel Homestead now supports Apple Silicon by using the homestead-arm base box with the parallels provider.

This would have been impossible without the direct financial support of Memiah and Paul Maunders. I'm incredibly grateful for the hardware which gives Homestead the ability to support Apple Silicon users.

To get started see the Homestead Documentation note about using Apple Silicon.
