Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac enables users to run Windows applications on a Mac and easily move content between the two worlds. With the new version, users can drag and drop images directly from macOS screenshot previews, Safari and Photos into Windows applications running on a Mac. They can also right-click a file in Finder, then select ‘Share’ and ‘Send with Windows Email App’ to send the file via the default Windows email client, e.g. Outlook or Mail. In addition, support for Apple Metal API improves graphics performance and enables users to run more Windows programs than ever, including PC games and CAD/CAM applications. With Bluetooth Low Energy support, Parallels Desktop 15 also enables Xbox Controller, Logitech Craft, IRISPen and some IoT devices to be used in a VM on a Mac.
