How to run CocoaPods on Apple Silicon (M1)

2022 Nov Update

If you can use Homebrew to manage cocoapods.

# Uninstall the local cocoapods gem
sudo gem uninstall cocoapods

# Reinstall cocoapods via Homebrew
brew install cocoapods

2021 Solution

# STEP 1: Install ffi
sudo arch -x86_64 gem install ffi

# STEP 2: Re-install dependencies
arch -x86_64 pod install

Additional Information

#1 For anyone seeing the arch: posix_spawnp: gem: Bad CPU type in executable error, you must first install Rosetta. Thanks, @Jack Dewhurst

#2 If you run pod commands pretty often, setting up an alias in .zshrc or .bash_profile might be handy. Thanks, @theMoonlitKnight for the suggestion.

alias pod='arch -x86_64 pod'
