Today, Adobe is announcing a bunch of video editing improvements that span across all platforms. For starters, Premiere Rush is now officially supported for Apple's custom ARM processors, such as the M1. Adobe also noted that project syncing all works across devices, and that includes Windows, iOS, Android, and more. In fact, two new Android devices are supported: the Samsung Galaxy Note20 and Note20+.

Back to Apple Silicon support, as it stands right now, you can run Adobe Premiere Pro natively, but it's in beta. It's actually missing a fair bunch of features as well, such as support for a bunch of common file formats. You can also choose to install the Intel version of the app.

On Premiere Rush on iOS, Adobe is adding context menus to the timeline, so you can tap on a video clip to bring up the pop-up menu. You can use it to split, duplicate, or delete a video clip.

Along with improvements for Premiere Rush, there are also improvements in Premiere Pro, which arrives as version 15.1. On Intel-based Windows machines, you'll see a big performance boost for encoding H.264/HEVC. In fact, Adobe says that it's up to 1.8x faster than Premiere Pro 14, as it uses Intel Quick Sync hardware acceleration.
