The Apple Silicon Desktop App Download is an x64 Build

Bug description:

The Apple Silicon desktop app download available here is actually an x64 app.

$ file Replit.app/Contents/MacOS/Replit 
Replit.app/Contents/MacOS/Replit: Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64

As a result, the app is running emulated and is slow to start on first launch due to Rosetta translation.

All,

I’ve sent this note over to the desktop team.

This has now been fixed.

The download at https://desktop.replit.com/download/mac for the Apple Silicon desktop app is now an Apple Silicon build.

$ file Replit.app/Contents/MacOS/Replit 
Replit.app/Contents/MacOS/Replit: Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64

Anyone on an Apple Silicon Mac will want to delete and re-download. The arm64 version is noticeably faster.
