Apple Pay and third party kernel extensions are mutually exclusive in macOS 12.1.
I realize this is an Apple Issue but as it effects SoftRAID this is a heads up
This morning I installed macOS 12.1 (the release version) and coincidentally adding a credit card to Apple Pay. As I had recently updated other cards while running macOS 12.1 beta 4 I was surprised to get a popup indicating somewhat indirectly that Apple Pay required full volume security. After some experimentation I verified:
- in macOS 12.1, full volume security is required to use Apple Pay
- third party kernel extensions such as softRAID will only load under reduced volume security
Conclusion: Apple Pay and third party kernel extensions are mutually exclusive in macOS 12.1.
Maybe this will help put some pressure on Apple to finish work on running third party extensions in the user area?🤞

Thanks for the heads up, we were not aware of this. I will ask about.
