How to run Windows 10 on apple's M1 chip



Apple has unveiled the new Arm-based M1 chip with MacBook Air, Macbook Pro and Mac Mini, and for people considering choosing one of these devices to be used as a workstation, there is a way to run Windows 10 on the latest Apple devices.

As enterprise users can now run Windows 10 on Chromebook, Mac users can also do so even on the M1 chip using parallels.

Apple's M1 chip should go smoothly for most original Mac apps thanks to Rosetta technology, and the same applies to Parallels Access, Parallels Toolbox and Parallels Client even before the company rebuilds all of these applications as global binary.

Virtual devices are an exception, which is why Parallels is actively developing a new version of Parallels Desktop for Mac, which can be played on Macbook Air, Macbook Pro and Mac Mini, all featuring apple's M1 chip.


Parallels has made tremendous progress in developing its new version of Parallels Desktop for Apple's M1 Macs, where the company has transformed Parallels Desktop into a global dual system, and has also improved its virtualization code.

Nick Dobrovolski, Senior Vice President of Engineering and Support at Parallels, explained in a post that the company will continue to improve the software of apple's M1 virtual machine: "As our customers know, Parallels is very interested in the quality of our software products and the experiences they offer. With the availability of apple's new MacOS Big Sur and Mac with apple's M1 chip, we will continue to conduct more comprehensive assessments in our lab, with your help with the upcoming Parallels Technical Preview."

Users interested in experimenting with the new version of Parallels Desktop for Mac can complete this form for a chance to participate in its technical preview.

The design of the AirPods Studio headset, widely rumored to be being launched by Apple, may have leaked in the form of a code discovered in the latest trial version of iOS 14.3. 9to5Mac, an Apple news site that was looking at the iOS 14.3 demo system that quickly came down after its initial release on Thursday, discovered an abstract sketch of what could be the design of headphones placed on the head.
