Parallels Virtualization Application Already Adapted for Mac on Apple M1 Processor

Corel has officially confirmed that it is working on the Parallels software package for Apple computers based on the proprietary ARM M1 chipset. In addition, Corel has already updated the app to fully support macOS Big Sur on Intel-based computers.

According to the company, a new version of Parallels Desktop, which will be able to run on Macs with an M1 processor, is already in active development. Corel noted that the prototype software package for Apple computers with ARM chips was demonstrated by the Cupertino-based company back during WWDC 2020 when it launched a flawlessly working Linux virtual machine. Since then, the company has been gradually increasing the software functionality, preparing for the imminent launch of its release version.

In addition, it became known yesterday that the CrossOver 20 software package, based on the Wine project, has become available for Mac with M1 chips, which allows you to run Windows applications on macOS and Linux without installing the Microsoft operating system.

Parallels are still limited to Intel-based Macs at the moment but are fully compatible with macOS Big Sur. In addition, DirectX 11 and OpenGL 3 run 20 percent faster in the current version of the software, power consumption has decreased by 10 percent, an automatic disk space reclaim function has appeared, and new multitouch gestures have become available for Windows applications.
