In the framework opened on Monday, June 22, 2020 WWDC Apple announced the imminent end of the multi-year partnership with Intel that began in 2006. As announced, now in laptops and the Mac, the next generation will be established ARM processors by Apple, not Intel on x86.
the Software created for x86, is incompatible with ARM, so developers first and foremost, Apple will need to rewrite their applications. The company has adapted to the new architecture of the operating system macOS Big Sur and some of their own programs, including a professional video editor Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro X for audio, and also provided technology Rosetta 2 for backward compatibility.
in Spite of this, a number of opportunities for Macs that rely on x86 will be left behind. In this regard, including the Boot Camp utility, which allows you to install Windows next to macOS and switch between them at the stage of loading the operating system.
the Fact that Boot Camp is not supported on computers with ARM chips, confirmed senior Vice President of development AT Apple, Craig Federighi. Instead of this utility it is recommended to use platforms for virtualization like VMWare or Parallels. “These hypervisors can be very efficient, so the need for a direct upload should not be a problem,” said Federighi in podscast Daring Fireball.
However, VMWare, Parallels and other such applications that allow you to create a Mac virtual Windows desktop that is incompatible with the technology of Rosetta 2 and, therefore, needs to be rewritten from scratch for the new Apple computers. However, none of the major developers of virtualization has not expressed its willingness to support Windows on ARM-based computers.
overall, the prospects for the emergence of Windows on Macs running ARM, very vague, writes The Verge. The situation could allow Microsoft, dozvoliv the installation of its OS on ARM-ustrojstva. Now the right to preinstall the ARM version of Windows 10 on a new PC have only manufacturers. On the question of whether this strict license policy change, Microsoft responded that they “have nothing to share at this moment.”
