Microsoft confirms that Windows 11 will not support Apple M1 chip
When Apple launched the M1 version of the MacBook, users asked whether Apple supports the installation of Windows 10. Apple said that whether it supports it depends on Microsoft.
Unfortunately, this experience is about to end, because Microsoft has confirmed that it will not provide official Windows 11 support for Apple M1 processors.
Microsoft simply stated that running the ARM version of Windows 11 on M1 processor-based devices is an unsupported scenario. The specific reason is unknown.
Microsoft is not ready to provide support for Apple M1, which means that the company’s cooperation with Parallels Desktop has been terminated.
It may be more uncomfortable for virtual machine users without Microsoft to provide technical support. For example, the latest development version of Windows 11 recently experienced a blue screen of death error.
To solve this problem, Parallels Desktop released an update to solve the problem, but the company did not specify how to solve the compatibility error that occurred this time.
Microsoft emphasized that running Windows 11 through Parallels Desktop on M1 is an unsupported scenario, The Register reports. And Apple hardware based on the M1 processor can’t directly run the ARM version of Windows 11.
