It's a massive uphill struggle for a new company to have their software ported onto Apple devices. It takes a long time. The certification process must start from scratch.

Mark Thakara UK head of marketing at OMDS speaks to this in a recent AMA with a UK Olympus forum group. They are working flat out to address this. If I can find the link, I'll share here.

Oh, at least someone has recognised the problem over at OMDS.

But the em1.3 was released back in February 2020, almost a year before JIP took over. Plenty of time for Olympus to provide the RAW support to apple, as they used to do with every other camera. My guess is the staff cut was already starting back then.

At this point it's really a pain to manage and go through RAW files from the em1.3. You have to use either the sluggish workspace, or LR which are not ideal for archiving large number of profiles.
