It hasn’t been all that lengthy since Microsoft formally introduced the subsequent main replace to its wildly well-liked Home windows desktop working system. With Home windows 11, the corporate is welcoming a whole lot of massive adjustments to the combination, some main polish throughout the UI, and rather more. And help is within the works for macOS, too.
However not from Microsoft, clearly. That may be awkward. (Although, fairly the daring step, Microsoft!) No, help for Microsoft’s competing desktop OS on Apple’s pc’s is within the works from a distinct firm altogether. As first reported as we speak by iMore, the crew over at Parallels has confirmed that it’s already onerous at work on bringing Home windows 11 to macOS sooner or later.
That’s excellent news for people who’re already utilizing Home windows 10 on their macOS-powered machine, however who need to get their palms on Microsoft’s new model in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later. Sadly, the unhealthy information is that we don’t know when, precisely, Parallels will launch that help.
For what it’s price, Home windows 11 doesn’t really launch for supported PCs till someday later this yr.
Right here’s Parallel’s SVP of Engineering and Assist, Nick Dobrovolsky on the matter:
Since Home windows 11 has simply been introduced lately, the Parallels Engineering crew is ready for the official Home windows 11 Insider Preview construct to start out finding out adjustments launched within the new OS to ship full compatibility in future Parallels Desktop updates.
There’s a silver lining, although. Proper now, with Parallels model 16, that compatibility software program is constructed for macOS Huge Sur — the present model of macOS. However macOS Monterey can also be within the works, with a launch date anticipated within the fall. So the crew at Parallels is creating Home windows 11 help for macOS Monterey, in order that each variations are supported proper out of the gate. That means, if you wish to use Home windows 11 in Parallels on a Mac, you hopefully gained’t have to limit your self to staying on a earlier model of Apple’s desktop OS to make it work.
