Vmware Fusion On Mac M1


VMware does have some of the enterprise products working on Apple Silicon M1, but Fusion is not there yet - the internal team are working on it - see the blog. Until they officially advertise Fusion as M1 supported any other Big Sur news are Inte's only;(. VMware Fusion first launched in 2007, a year after Apple began the transition from PowerPC to Intel processors. In the 14 years since, it has stood alongside Parallels as the most popular Windows virtualization apps for macOS. The Fusion maker says it believes the next era of Macs will be less about easing the transition for Windows switchers. Virtualization company VMware doesn't plan on supporting x86 virtual machines on M1 Macs, and is distancing itself from Windows on ARM VMs on Apple Silicon until Microsoft clarifies its licensing. On Mac, that support has to arrive via tools like Parallels and VMWare, however, because Apple doesn't offer an equivalent to Boot Camp on Macs featuring its custom chip. That means it's important.

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.
