Apple unveiled the new Arm-based M1 chip along with the MacBook Air, Macbook Pro and Mac Mini computer, and for people who are thinking of choosing one of these devices to use as a workstation, there is a way that allows the Windows operating system 10 on the latest Apple devices.
Just as enterprise users can now run Windows 10 on a Chromebook, Mac users can do so even on the M1 chip using Parallels.
The transition to Apple’s M1 chip should go smoothly for most native Mac applications thanks to Rosetta technology, and the same is true for Parallels Access, Parallels Toolbox, and Parallels Client even before the company rebuilds all of these applications as universal binaries.
Virtual machines are an exception, which is why Parallels is actively developing a new version of Parallels Desktop for Mac that can run on Macbook Air, Macbook Pro and Mac Mini that all feature Apple’s M1 chip.
Parallels made tremendous progress in developing their new version of Parallels Desktop for Mac running on Apple’s M1 chip, as the company transformed Parallels Desktop into a universal binary and also improved its virtualization code.
Nick Dobrovolsky, Parallels’ senior vice president of engineering and support, explained in a post that the company will continue to improve Apple’s M1 virtual machine software, saying, “As our customers know, Parallels places great emphasis on the quality of our software products and the experiences they provide. With the availability of macOS Big Sur and the new Mac with the M1 chip from Apple, we will continue to conduct more comprehensive assessments in our lab, with your help via the upcoming Parallels Technical Preview program.

It is worth noting that it is possible that the design of the earphones that are placed on the head (AirPods Studio), which is widely rumored that Apple is planning to launch, may have been leaked in the form of a code discovered in the latest beta version of the number 14.3 of the iOS system. Apple’s news site 9to5Mac, which was looking at the iOS 14.3 beta that was quickly downloaded after its initial release on Thursday, discovered an abstract drawing of what the design of the headphones could be.
