ARM (M1 Chip) macOS Github Actions Runner?

Is there any news about when macOS ARM runners will be available?

Backwards-compatibility of M1 chips seems poor at best, so we really need to be able to run our integration tests directly on M1 chips to be able to ship for that platform.

Can you elaborate on this assertion? From what I’ve seen via my own testing, backward compatibility is excellent on M-series Macs.

Even if backwards compatibility was good, natively compiled and tested apps are quite important.
