Tails does not start at all on Mac models that use the Apple M1 chip and on many other Mac models.
Apple does not prioritize collaborating with Free Software projects. Their newest hardware is usually very hard for Free Software developers to get working with Linux, and thus Tails. PC hardware tends to be more open and work better with Linux.
