Apple recently unveiled its new Arm-based M1 chip alongside a replacement MacBook Air, Macbook Pro, and Mac Mini and for business, users considering picking one up to use as a workstation, fortunately, there's how you'll run Windows 10 on the company's latest devices.

Just as enterprise users can now run Windows 10 on a Chromebook, Mac users can do so also even on the M1 chip by using Parallels' virtual machine software. 

The transition to the Apple M1 chip should go smoothly for many native Mac applications because of Rosetta technology and therefore the same is true for Parallels Access, Parallels Toolbox and Parallels Client software even before the company rebuilt all of those apps as universal binaries.

Virtual machines are an exception though which is why Parallels is actively developing a replacement version of Parallels Desktop for Mac which will run on the new Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, and Mac Mini which all feature Apple's M1 chip.

Preparing for Apple Silicon

Back at Apple's WWDC keynote this summer, the Cupertino-based company showed of a demo of a Parallels Desktop for Mac prototype running a Linux virtual machine flawlessly on Apple Silicon.

Since then though, Parallels has made tremendous progress further developing its remake of Parallels Desktop for Mac's running on the Apple M1 chip. the corporate switched Parallels Desktop to universal binary and also optimized its virtualization code.

SVP of engineering and support at Parallels, Nick Dobrovolskiy explained during a blog post that the corporate will still improve and optimize its virtual machine software for devices running Apple's M1 chip, saying:

“As our customers know, Parallels cares deeply about the standard of our software products and therefore the experiences they supply. With macOS Big Sur and new Mac with Apple M1 chip becoming available, we'll still do more extensive evaluations, both in our lab and together with your help via the upcoming Parallels Technical Preview Program.” 

Users curious about trying out the remake of Parallels Desktop for Mac can complete this type for an opportunity to participate in its technical preview.
