    This issue (entire M1 McBook system freezes) is fixed for AI 25.0.1 and 25.1

    This fix takes effect in a day’s time, if you still face this entire system freeze then please follow the steps to update

    1). Backup your preferences and launch Illustrator with fresh preferences
    2). Quit and re-launch Illustrator once again
    3). Use Illustrator in your workflow

    If you see AI crash and entire system is not freezing then please create a new issue.

    Turning off GPU does indeed keep my M1 MBP from crashing and Illustrator does indeed function now. “Function”, it’s slow AF and there are some rather strange video crashes here and there. This is not a fix! It’s a bandaid work around so I can continue to use AI. Still inexcusable for a company like Adobe, but par for the course. I am training up on Affinity Designer, learning curve for sure. But holy cow! Is it fast and beautiful software, and it’s on $50!

    Make it native for M1 Apple Silicon, it’s currently unusable
