Parallels has released an update to its Desktop software that allows Apple M1-based Mac owners to install Windows 10 for Arm processors (Windows 10 on Arm). Parallels Desktop 16.5 now includes the necessary native support to run Arm Windows on Apple M1s following Apple’s decision not to support Boot Camp on Macs with Apple M1s.
The latest version of Parallels Desktop for Mac allows Mac owners with an Apple M1 to run Windows 10 on Arm apps as well as traditional x86 apps concurrently with Mac or iOS apps on Big Sur. Windows 10 on Arm will have some app limitations thanks to native app emulation, but Windows 10 on Arm will soon support x64 app emulation as well.
The manufacturer says the latest update also resulted in some impressive performance and battery savings over running the software on Intel-based Macs. This version uses 250% less power on a Mac with an Apple M1 compared to an Intel-based MacBook Air. It also promises to improve DirectX 11 performance by 60% and increase overall virtual machine performance by up to 30%.
The main drawback is that you need to run Windows Preview The software manufacturer provides a Windows 10 on Arm preview build that can be downloaded from the Microsoft Windows Insider website.
In addition to supporting Windows 10 on Arm, Parallels Desktop 16.5 for Mac also supports Linux distributions such as Ubuntu 20.04, Kali Linux 2021.1, Debian 10.7, and Fedora Workstation 33-1.2.
Paid apps in Huawei AppGallery can be downloaded completely free of charge: Huawei has not yet responded
Since Huawei was under US sanctions, Huawei has been forced to switch to its own software solutions as it is banned from using Google services. One of them is the AppGallery app store, which has become a replacement for Google Play.
AppGallery has a pretty serious issue that one developer says has remained unresolved for months, even though he reported it to Huawei back in February. This vulnerability allows anyone with a little bit of technical skill, some free time, and a bit of inclination to put in a little effort to download and install any paid app from AppGallery without paying for it. Of course, for developers who support Huawei by releasing their apps in the AppGallery, this is very bad news.
Dylan Roussel, the developer who discovered the problem, emphasizes that this vulnerability is on the side of Huawei, which still remains unresolved. The bottom line is that the AppGallery API does not offer any protection for paid apps.
Roussel himself was able to download and use several paid apps by exploiting this vulnerability. Obviously, this is a big problem, because with the active exploitation of the vulnerability, developers will receive less profit from the possible sale of their applications.
It remains to be hoped that Huawei will soon solve the problem.
