IFixit teardown shows exactly how comparable the new M1 MacBooks are

As spotted by iMore, version 2.3.0.0 of the utility provides support for users looking to migrate their data from a Windows PC to Apple's latest Mac operating system.

Apple's policy is that the only approved way to install iOS apps is to get them from the Mac App Store and the only way for developers to distribute iOS apps to Mac users is via that same store. Also, while the Air and the Pro have set historic new guidelines for execution and effectiveness, incidentally, this can be ascribed on the whole to the M1 chip as opposed to a specific design changes.

But Apple's move to its M1 chip has raised questions about running Windows on a Mac.

While we can tell you what it's like to use the new M1-powered MacBook Air, the folks at iFixit specialize in pulling them apart to see what's inside.

Federighi tipped running Windows in the cloud as a potential solution to having Windows run on M1 Mac devices.

Macs with Apple M1 Can Now Run Windows Apps Through CrossOver 20

While Parallels and VMware have gotten the most attention over the years for those who want to run Mac apps, there's actually been another player in the game for years that you may not have heard of, known as Codeweavers.

It seems like CrossOver 20 will work with macOS Big Sur 11.1 beta as it has some critical fixes to Rosetta 2.

CodeWeavers has already confirmed that Quicken and Among Us works, but as the video above demonstrates, Team Fortress 2 runs very well, too.

Explaining how this emulation works, the developers said, "Imagine - a 32-bit Windows Intel binary, running in a 32-to-64 bridge in Wine/ CrossOver on top of macOS, on an ARM CPU that is emulating x86".

Apple has started to transition to using its own Silicon in its range of Mac devices, starting with the M1 chip.
