Parallels Desktop has announced that it is working on support for Windows 11 on macOS. The company makes popular software for virtualizing Windows on Mac computers.
While Windows 11 – unveiled by Microsoft last week – won’t be supported on Macs by default, but many Mac users already run Windows in a virtualized machine on their Macs. Running Windows natively through Boot Camp is not an available option on all Apple silicon Macs, leaving virtualization to be the only option.
iMore reports that Parallels has confirmed that it is waiting to work with Windows 11, as soon as all of its features are released and part of the Windows 11 Preview build before they starting working on Mac compatibility:
“Since Windows 11 has just been announced recently, the Parallels Engineering team is waiting for the official Windows 11 Insider Preview build to start studying changes introduced in the new OS to deliver full compatibility in future Parallels Desktop updates,” Nick Dobrovolskiy, SVP of Engineering and Support told iMore. Microsoft’s first Insider preview build came out on Monday, but the rollout was a bumpy one and it doesn’t include all of the new features that are coming to Windows 11 later this year such as Microsoft Teams integration or support for Android apps.
Parallels said that it “will surely do everything that’s possible to make it happen.”
