Coming Soon: Support for Macs with the M1 processor
To fully support the use of AQ products on Macs with the M1 processor, both Parallels and Microsoft are working to release their production software versions. Parallels has released support for the M1 processor, but Microsoft is still in a pre-production Windows 10 ARM build and it is not yet available.
We have been actively testing the preview build of Windows 10 ARM to ensure continued support. As soon as Microsoft finalizes the Windows 10 ARM production build, we will begin to roll it out to AQ customers.
