Parallels 17 is the first virtual machine app which brings Windows to M1 Macs. Here is everything you need to know about this.
Parallels Desktop 12 has been released with support for macOS Sierra 10.12 and much more. Here are the details.
It is very rare that a large company offering a popular application or service can work on a substantial upgrade to that product without some of the information leaking into the public domain prior to release. Unfortunately for Parallels that's exactly what happened last month, with the difference being that it was actually an internal leak that let the cat out of the bag. That said, the company's latest iteration of its virtual machine software, Parallels Desktop 11, is now officially available for Mac OS X users.
With Microsoft steadily ratcheting up the development of Windows 10, it's inevitable that some people are going to want to test it out on their Mac, whether for work or just to keep up on the latest technologies from across the isle. The most popular way to do that is in a virtual machine - or VM as some like to call it - and possibly the best way to do that on a Mac is with Parallels Desktop. Currently at version 10, Parallels Desktop costs $80 and importantly, was just updated to support not just the Microsoft Windows 10 Technical Preview, but also the new Office 2016 Preview, too.
In the world of hardware virtualization, Parallels is arguably the biggest player on the Mac. Being able to use a Mac computer full time but still dabble in Windows when needed can be a pretty powerful thing, especially if you develop apps for Microsoft's platform, or just need to use an app that doesn't yet have a Mac version. As much as Apple wouldn't like to admit it, sometimes you just need to use Windows for some things.
Catchy headline, no? While you won’t be ever able to run a full-blown modern desktop OS like Windows or Linux on your iOS gadget anytime soon, but with virtual-machining software Parallels Desktop for Mac, you can now access your Windows 7 or Linux-based virtual machines from your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad!
