Citrix Workspace For Mac M1

Posted on  by admin

This document outlines the process to install the Citrix Workspace App for a Mac computer. The Citrix Workspace app runs the Virtual Applications & Desktops and must be installed on your computer for them to work.

  • Supported Apple Citrix Software; Hardware: The recommended hardware requirements for running Workplace on a computer are: 2.0 gigahertz (GHz) or faster dual-core Intel or AMD Processor (ARM processors such as Apple Silicon (ex: M1 Processors) hardware is NOT supported) 4GB of RAM or higher. A Solid State Hard Drive with at least 128GB of capacity.
  • I have the same issue on mac so I dont think its even a citrix problem at this point. Giving it a little more thought (and after having had some more caffeine), the specifics of Printer redirection probably rely on Windows (-specific) technologies, and might not work or not as expected.
  • Citrix Workspace app for Mac now supports Apple silicon devices (M1 chip) using Rosetta 2 on macOS Big Sur (11.0 and later). As a result, all third party virtual channels must use Rosetta 2. Otherwise, these virtual channels might not work in Citrix Workspace app for Mac on macOS Big Sur (11.0 and later).

1. Open up your internet browser of choice (we suggest google chrome or safari)

Citrix Now Working w/IOS13 I was having the same problems as noted in other reviews where Citrix quit working after my iPad updated to IOS13. After a couple emails today with Rishabh, it’s now working. I had both CR01 and the latest Citrix Workspace installed. Per Rishabh’s direction, I removed CR01 and now it works great same as before.
