The Apple Mac mini with M1 processor is cheaper, faster, and keeps everything we loved about the Mac mini while changing up both the internals and where Apple sits in the larger industry. VMware is 'a few months away' from releasing its macOS desktop hypervisor, Fusion, in a native version for Apple's new M1 silicon. Product manager Michael Roy dropped the news on Twitter, after earlier saying news of the product was 'in review' and would emerge this week. The mention of a review turned out to refer.

Myra from Anaheim, CA

Myra recently got an M1 Mac Mini to replace her old Windows machine. How can she run her Windows teaching programs with her new Mac? She hears that Parallels isn't perfect for running Windows virtually.

Leo says that the M1 doesn't use BootCamp anymore, so it is virtually the only option now. Leo says that VMWare Fusion is the other virtual option. But both VMWare and Parallels have yet to release an M1 version. However, Parallels has released a technical preview version that you could try. But there is another challenge. You need a special version of Windows.

Here's an article that talks about it - https://9to5mac.com/2020/12/17/windows-m1-mac-parallels/

You can install Mac OS X, OS X, or macOS in a virtual machine. Fusion creates the virtual machine, opens the operating system installation assistant, and installs VMware Tools. VMware Tools loads the drivers required to optimize a virtual machine's performance.

Mac OS X, OS X, or macOS virtual machines that you create in Fusion can run on any Apple-branded hardware that uses Intel processors. The Apple licensing agreement defines the situations when it is permissible to virtualize Mac OS X, OS X, or macOS. Fusion does not change these terms or enable macOS on non-Apple hardware. You cannot use a Mac OS X, OS X, or macOS virtual machine in another VMware product, such as Workstation Pro.

Fusion supports the following Mac server and client versions for the guest operating system:
  • Mac OS X Server 10.5, 10.6
  • Mac OS X 10.7
  • OS X 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, 10.11
  • macOS 10.12, 10.13, 10.14, 10.15
  • macOS 11.0
