Optimized for Catalina
Parallels Desktop 15 is fully compatible and optimized for macOS Catalina—including Sidecar support and new security and privacy features.
Version 15 supports macOS Catalina 10.15, Mojave 10.14, High Sierra 10.13 and Sierra 10.12.
Version 15 supports DirectX 9, DirectX 10 and DirectX 11—all via Apple Metal®.* With the addition of DirectX 11, you can now run graphic-intensive applications and games, such as Autodesk 3ds Max 2020, Lumion, ArcGIS Pro, Master Series, FIFA 19, Age of Empires, Fallout 4 and more.
*macOS Mojave is required; macOS Catalina is recommended for the best performance and required for some applications to run.
Email Files from Finder
Parallels Desktop 15 adds support to the Share menu in Finder—you can send files from macOS using a Windows email application. Just right-click a file in the Finder and select Share > Send with Windows Email App. The file will be sent by your default email client in Windows.
Drag and drop like never before. Apple® changed the way screenshots are done in Mojave and Catalina, and you may notice that you can’t use their previews in Windows applications. Parallels Desktop 15 now makes this possible—plus, it provides the ability to drag images right from Safari, Photos and other Mac applications.
Use Apple Pencil® in your favorite Windows applications with added tilt and eraser support. With Sidecar, you can use your iPad as a second display to extend your Windows applications.
Parallels Desktop 15 supports an additional category of Bluetooth devices. Connect your Logitech Craft keyboard, IRISPen, some IoT devices (such as smart home appliances and smart bands) and more.
A wide variety of Linux distributions are supported in virtual machines. Version 15 provides Virtio GPU, which allows the use of sliding mouse, dynamic resolution and multimonitor support out of the box (even without Parallels Tools).
Experience significant performance improvements in Parallels Desktop 15. Microsoft Office applications start up to 80% faster, and you’ll also see a faster and more responsive Parallels Desktop UI. Enjoy up to 15% faster 3D graphics improvements (best result is achieved on 3DMark13 Cloud Gate test with AMD Radeon graphics).
Parallels Desktop now features support for Apple Metal® API for improved graphics. As part of the move to Metal, Parallels Desktop 15 supports DirectX® 11, 10 and 9 on Metal, delivering best-ever performance.
