It has been revealed that VMWare Fusion would be updated to include support for Windows 11 on both Intel-based and Apple silicon-based devices in the near future.
In spite of the fact that ARM versions of Windows are not available for Macs with M1 or M2 CPUs, VMWare Fusion virtualization software allows users to download and run Windows 11 on Apple Silicon Macs.
On the company’s website, users may now participate in a free technology preview that allows them to test out the most recent upgrade of VMWare Fusion.
VMWare has stated that it is looking for customer feedback as it “irons out wrinkles” and gets ready to provide more formal support later in the year 2022.
“It’s here,” the business said in a message. When things on Apple silicon don’t always behave the same as they do on Intel, Fusion is excited to discuss the work it has done to prepare support for Windows 11 virtual machines on both Intel and Apple silicon Macs.
Along with support for Windows 11 on Apple Silicon machines, the newly released technology preview also offers VMtools installation for Windows 11 on M1, better Linux support on M1, 3D Graphics HW Acceleration and OpenGL 4.3 in Linux VMs, as well as additional features.
There are some limits in support for Apple Silicon Macs, as noted by the firm, but VMWare Fusion is still a work in progress, according to the company. If you want to run VMs across many architectures, Fusion won’t be able to help you. It’s also not presently possible to create macOS-based virtual computers, but VMWare is working on it.
