Everyone is now obliged to reread their manual after Apple’s statement that it would be switching to Silicon processors. Not everyone who has hurried to a Mac with one of these CPUs has been entitled to all their preferred applications immediately.
On every Mac, Boot Camp is a built-in feature, enabling the installation of a Windows partition on an Apple machine. As a result, the user can start the computer with either macOS or Microsoft’s OS.
The benefit of this functionality is the ability to run PC-only software, such as games or certain business apps. Additionally, running your system under a different OS enables you to use the complete computer resource, unlike virtualization.
The function was discontinued once the M1 Macs were introduced, however. Windows Insider Preview users—a kind of open beta—are the only ones with access to the version of Windows for ARM CPUs.
With the inclusion of drivers for the Display Studio, Boot Camp has continued to evolve, and a new version was just made available. The innovations focused mostly on connectivity: WPA3 addition for Wi-Fi and improved Bluetooth reliability. A minor drawback is that these upgrades are only available for Intel Macs, and there is still no sign of Boot Camp for Apple Silicon chips.
Virtualization is one of the options. Using this technique, you may install a different operating system on your primary PC. From your Mac, you may run a virtual Windows as an application. Due largely to its most recent version, which enables you to install Windows 11 instantly, Parallels Desktop is still the market leader in this regard.
