What's New in Parallels Desktop 16 for Mac?

This question is addressed by the developers in a small Video explained, which was uploaded to YouTube in August. There are more demonstrations of the virtual execution of Microsoft Windows on the Apple Mac on the corresponding YouTube channel. For example, a week ago a video was uploaded showing how to use Parallels Desktop on a Mac to play the Definitive Edition of Age of Empires III. But other topics that differ from gaming are of course covered with instructions and tutorials;)

  1. I still haven't fully understood the pricing.
    Allegedly, the normal version costs € 79,99 once and the pro edition costs € 99 per year.

    Since you can't avoid an annual update (at least not if you work productively with the latest versions of the operating systems every day), the alternative would be 79 € and then 49 € / year or the Pro edition and then € 99 per year. Or so the assumption.

    But: If you first take the standard edition for 79 €, then you get an offer for 49 € the following year - either once for the standard edition or annually for the pro edition, i.e. the latter for 49 € instead of the regular 99 € / year.

    At least that is the case with me (for over 5 years) and my colleagues (last year) and I think that they will not change anything in the future.

    The update is definitely worth the € 49. Of course there are alternatives such as Virtual Box etc., but then tinkering is back in fashion. The integration of Parallels is a world of its own and VMware Fusion now beats the update with 109,99 € (Pro) or 87,99 € for the normal version.

    And not to be forgotten are the features like "prlctl" in the Pro Edition, which you can use to easily start and stop Windows services via Shell or AppleScript and much more...

  2. 1. Hmm, whether the future Macs with Apple Silicon will also be supported has not yet been announced, I think. Perhaps it would have been worth a sentence.

    2. Comment from Dirk: I recently read that VMware is releasing a free player (the previous standard version?) ...


    1. To 1: No. That is not their area of ​​expertise. They do virtualization and not emulation. I rather think that it is going - if at all - in the direction that MS will also offer a 64-bit ARM Windows version (with full x86 and x64 support - which has been announced). So far, however, all of this is only available for OEMs - i.e. for device manufacturers, which also makes sense, because it saves them all the driver fuss and the support of a wide variety of (self-made) configurations. So I don't have much hope. I would spare myself that too.

      To 2: I understood that, just never found one. Currently there is only one so-called VMWare Fusion 12 player (which probably corresponds to the standard edition) at a bargain price of € 163,99. The Pro version is available for € 218,98. I am quite satisfied with the PD version for 49 € / year.
