Trusted by industry-leading software developers

"I'm using Parallels Desktop to have multiple operating systems all on one device. I can set the CPU, RAM, and hard disk according to how many sources I need. This app is really stable and supports almost all operating systems. Also, it’s possible to sync files between the local device and virtual machine."

System Specialist

"Parallels has been my go-to virtual platform for testing new versions of macOS and for setting up my PC desktop engineer environment. It is so powerful that I can easily use the virtual PC and avoid needing a physical PC laptop in addition to my Mac laptop."

Systems Engineer

"I use Parallels to run older versions of Mac OS X on my MacBook Pro for the purposes of testing apps on older versions of Mac OS. Parallels does this job perfectly, by allowing me to easily boot up older versions of the OS at leisure. I also run Windows 10 in Parallels so I can use PC-only apps that are not available on OS X."
