New Macs with ARM chips will not support Windows 10 via Boot Camp

Boot Camp is a tool that allows users to use Windows 10 in “dual boot” with macOS

Apple recently confirmed that will use processors based on ARM architecture in the new Mac instead of Intel processors in 2020. A further problem is that this will make it impossible to run Windows 10 via Boot Camp on Macs equipped with these processors.

For those who don’t know, Boot Camp is a tool that allows users to use Windows 10 in “dual boot” with macOS. Once installed, the user can switch between the two operating systems when restarting the Mac. Learn more about this tool here.

Microsoft currently only licenses Windows 10 ARM to PC manufacturers who intend to launch new products with the system preinstalled. This specific version of Windows 10 is not available for everyone to license or install it wherever they want.

“Microsoft only licenses Windows 10 ARM for OEMs ,” a Microsoft spokesman said in a note to The Verge. When asked if the company plans to change this policy to allow Windows 10 to be used on ARM-based Macs, the spokesman said it “has nothing more to share about it at the moment” .

Apple has been working closely with Microsoft to ensure that Office is ready for the new ARM-based Macs later this year, but the company did not mention its lack of support for Boot Camp at WWDC.

Information about the absence of support for Boot Camp on new ARM-based Macs was only confirmed later during the Daring Fireball podcast“We are not going to start an alternate operating system directly, ” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering. “Pure virtualization is the way. These hypervisors can be very efficient, so the need for a direct startup shouldn’t really be a concern. 

Users who want to run Windows 10 on ARM-based Macs will have to use virtualization solutions such as VMware Fusion (image below) or Parallels Desktop. The detail here is that users will have to wait until new versions of these virtualization solutions compatible with the new ARM-based Mac are released, as the current ones will not be able to run.

Apple even demonstrated Parallels Desktop running Linux on a virtual machine, but it made no mention of support for Windows. VMware asked their community how they would use their Fusion virtualization solution on ARM-based Macs, but has not yet confirmed the availability of a compatible version.
