Amazon adds Mac mini to its AWS Cloud

For the first time in its history, Amazon has added macOS to its AWS Cloud, so that the new Mac mini can be used by Amazon EC2.

This allows developers to create apps for iPhone, iPad, Mac, etc. Through AWS.

Amazon said: With support for Mac Mini and AWS Nitro, you can use EC2 to create, test and sign Xcode apps for Apple platforms such as macOS, iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, watchOS and Safari.

Amazon's introduction of the Mac mini is very important to developers since they now have a large cloud provider that allows them to run Xcode and Swift developer tools in the cloud without having to maintain and repair their Macs.

Amazon uses Mac mini computers with Intel processors as the cloud version of macOS.

Each device is equipped with an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with 6 cores and 32GB of RAM. Developers can choose between macOS Mojave and macOS Catalina - and Big Sur will be supported soon.

Amazon also plans to ship devices for the M1 in 2021.

Mac computers are now available in AWS regions in the US, Europe, and Asia Pacific.

Developers can turn to companies like Macstadium to host macOS.

Apple's licensing agreement for macOS was a bit unclear, but Apple made this clear with a Big Sur license agreement update.

You can now hire Apple software and hardware from individuals or organizations for at least 24 consecutive hours for certified development services.

Amazon fixed this limitation for 24 hours, which means the device cannot be used as part of an auto-count suite.

With Amazon, developers can also pay for the use of macOS devices at a tax rate. The hourly usage fee is $ 1,083. Activation takes at least 24 hours of billing for the second time.

Developers have full access to their own devices. The device is not shared with other users. When you go to the Apple Store to buy the Mac Mini, Amazon said, we want to make sure we support the Mac Mini that you get.
