Windows has announced a new partnership with Parallels to bring official Windows 11 virtual machines to Apple Silicon Macs. This collaboration will allow users of the latest Macs running on Apple’s custom ARM-based processors to run Windows applications natively, without having to resort to third-party emulation solutions.
