Windows 10 on Mac is now here with Apple updating its Boot Camp software to Boot Camp version 6. Boot Camp has been around for a long while now and it allows Mac users to run Windows on their computers without having to buy a PC. Boot Camp runs in a virtual window, which emulates the hardware necessary to run Windows software. You may ask, why run Windows on a Mac anyway? Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world where all applications run on each OS without issue. From time to time, Mac users may run into a program that’s phenomenal but doesn’t work on Mac computers. In these cases, having Windows installed on your Mac allows you to use that program without sacrificing your Mac experience. Similar programs also exist for PC users to run OSX on Windows, such as VMWare Fusion.

The new Boot Camp 6 isn’t difficult to use and it now supports 64-bit Windows 10, which is a huge plus. There are some limitations such as what Mac hardware can be used with the new Boot Camp, below we have a full list of Macs that are compatible with the new Boot Camp 6.
