Python Development on M1 Macs

Apple Silicon Python Setup

I recently received a new MacBook Pro for work. Great! The only catch is that Apple discontinued their Intel-based line of MacBook Pros in 2021 and their new line of laptops use the Apple silicon M-series coprocessors. This might not seem like a problem at first, but the Apple silicon processors use ARM-architecture instead of Intel’s x86 architecture. For Python development, this is a potential problem because not all Python packages are installable for ARM architectures.
