Apple drops Windows 7 on Boot Camp for its new machines

Apple has been offering a utility for several years allowing its users to easily install Windows on their Mac. Boot Camp has evolved a lot over the years, of course, and the Bunched Apple took advantage of the launch of its new MacBook Air and new MacBook Pro to make some changes to the supported OS.

Changes that are likely to creak for some time and it is quite logical since the Bitten Apple has decided to no longer support Windows 7 on its latest machines.

Apple Drops Windows 7 On Boot Camp For Its New Machines

There is change in Boot Camp, and it is not necessarily for the good.

What does it mean ? Quite simply that you will no longer be able to install it on your machine. Not through Boot Camp, at least.

Only Windows 8.x is supported by the Boot Camp of the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro

If you need Windows, you will have to go to Windows 8.x, 32-bit or 64-bit version. This could be a problem for people working with software solutions that are not supported by this version, of course. And there is a lot, especially on the side of administrations elsewhere.

There, unfortunately, there will not be much to do, apart from installing a virtual machine using specialized software like Parallels Desktop or even VirtualBox.

This choice is rather surprising, therefore, especially since previous generations could benefit from the 64-bit version of Windows 7. Some even supported the 32-bit version, by the way.

If you want to know more about the platforms supported by Boot Camp, I invite you to go to Apple support, at this address . For the moment, we do not know if the current version of the utility will be able to run Windows 10. It will undoubtedly be necessary to wait for the arrival of this last on the market to have the heart net.
