Amazon adds M1 Mac minis to EC2 service for faster build times.
The new instances will be available in two regions (US West – Oregon and US East – North Virginia) for $0.6498 per hour, with support for discounts through AWS’ Savings Plans, too. AWS promises that these new machines offer a “60% better price performance over the x86-based EC2 Mac instances for iPhone and Mac app build workloads.”TechCrunch
