Should I even ask about M1 MacBooks and Ionic 3

I have begged my company to do something with an old Ionic app, written in Ionic 3. I have a MacBook around just for the purpose of supporting this old app. Now my companies computer team says it’s time for a new MacBook and I confirmed it would be an M1 chip. How bad would the headache be if I tried to get 6 year old ionic 3 code working on a M1 MacBook.
