Parallels Desktop for Windows 11 on Mac
IT administrators can now manage and provide support for Windows 11 Pro and Enterprise users running on Macs powered by M-series chips using Parallels Desktop.
Parallels Desktop for Mac has been optimized for the latest Mac line-up, including MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac mini, and Mac Studio. With just one click, users can download, install and configure Windows 11. The virtual TPM chip, coupled with the strong security capabilities designed into Apple Silicon and Secure Boot, provides a secure environment for customers.
Windows 11 and Parallels Desktop version 18 is an authorized solution for running Windows 11 Pro and Windows 11 Enterprise on Apple M1 and M2 computers. However, due to its Arm version, there may be limitations on hardware, games, and apps that rely on DirectX 12 or OpenGL3.3 or greater.
Experiences that rely on layered virtualization, a further layer of virtualization, are not supported as follows:
- Windows Subsystem for Android, which allows your device to run Android apps from the Amazon Appstore
- Windows Subsystem for Linux, which provides a GNU/Linux environment
- Windows Sandbox, a secure environment to run applications in isolation
- Virtualization-based Security (VBS), enables customers to create and isolate a secure region of memory.
- DirectX 12, a suite of multimedia technologies used in Windows games and other apps, is not supported.
- 32-bit Arm apps from the Store on Windows are not supported on Mac computers with M1 and M2 chips.
However, Mac M1 and M2 computers can also use apps in x64 or x86 emulation.

Parallels Desktop 18 for Mac offers a seamless experience on Mac with Intel and Apple M-series chips, and is available in Standard, Pro, and Business editions.
