    On Apple Silicon-based Macs we have the arch command that will allow us to to run a selected architecture of a universal binary. By default, the operating system will select the architecture that most closely matches the processor type.

    If you try to install minikube on an Apple Sillicon (such as Apple M1, M2...) you will face that some hypervisors doesn't support arm64 yet. Using Docker Destop, on the other hand, has recently changed it's license so it might not be suitable to you

    $ minikube start
    😄  minikube v1.26.1 on Darwin 12.5.1 (arm64)  Automatically selected the parallels driver. Other choices: ssh, qemu2 (experimental)
      Exiting due to DRV_UNSUPPORTED_OS: The driver 'parallels' is not supported on darwin/arm64
    $ minikube start --driver docker
    😄  minikube v1.26.1 on Darwin 12.5.1 (arm64)  Using the docker driver based on user configuration
    💣  Exiting due to PROVIDER_DOCKER_NOT_RUNNING: "docker version --format -" exit status 1: Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///Users/jordiprats/.rd/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?
    💡  Suggestion: Start the Docker service

    There are several alternatives to Docker Desktop but the one that I found more convenient and easier to install is Colima
