What’s New in Version 15

A must-have upgrade packed with 30+ new features.

Up to Date

Optimized for the latest Windows 10 updates and macOS Catalina, including support for Sidecar. Parallels Desktop continues to stay up to date so you can keep working without interruption—even when a new macOS, Windows or Linux release pops up.

Graphics

DirectX 11 support with the help of Apple Metal*. Now you can 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!

Integration

Save time with the new drag and drop feature that allows you to insert images directly into Windows applications from macOS screenshot previews, Safari and Photos. Plus, email a file right from the Finder context menu via your Windows email client in two clicks.

Connect More

Now you can connect devices to Window wirelessly via Bluetooth, including Logitech Craft keyboard, IRISPen, Android phone and many others.

Apple Sidecar

Use Apple Pencil in your favorite Windows applications with added tilt and eraser support. Extend your Windows applications on iPad as a second display with Sidecar plus Touch Bar options.
