I am running macOS Monterey 12.5. I am not able to open any of the iOS apps that I previously installed on my m1 pro MacBook pro (the apps worked fine previously). When I click the icon for one of these apps, absolutely nothing happens. No dock icon, no warning, nothing. I uninstalled & reinstalled the apps, and I restarted my mac. However, the same behavior is still exhibited. How to fix it?
The security policy, which can be set using the recovery mode GUI on an M1 Mac, is the problem.
- The security policy needs to be on Full or Reduced.
- If the security policy is set to Permissive, allowing the Mac to boot from any OS, then iOS apps won’t launch and there will be no error message other than the cryptic text in Console log.
If System Integrity Protection (SIP) is disabled, the same issue will occur. To enable SIP, do the following:
- Restart your computer in Recovery mode.
- Launch Terminal from the Utilities menu.
- Run the command ´csrutil enable´.
- Restart your computer.
Look at this article for more on SIP.
Starting from 12.4 (the first one on which I checked) and now with 12.5, it seems that you can only run some iPadOS apps on M1/M2 Macs.
They don’t scale properly, nor do they respect rotation, etc. tried on a couple and it was the same on both.
Would be more than happy to have better news but this is the state of things at the moment it seems.
