    How to check the processor architecture on your mac

     Intel based processor:

    1. Using the About This Mac window
    2. Click the Apple menu in the top-left corner of your screen.
    3. Select About This Mac.
    4. Click the System Report button.
    5. On the Hardware tab, look for the Processor Name.

    If you have an M1 or M2 Mac, the Processor Name will not be listed; instead, you will see a Model Number and Chip.

    M1 or M2 processor:

    1. Using the Terminal
    2. Open the Terminal.
    3. Type the following command and press Enter:
    uname -p

    This will display the processor architecture of your Mac.

    For example, if your Mac has an Intel processor, the output of the command will be x86_64. If your Mac has an M1 or M2 processor, the output of the command will be arm.
