What you need to know
- Windows 365 is now available.
- It brings Windows to any device with a web browser via Cloud computing.
- That means you can now run Windows in Safari on the Mac and the iPad.
Microsoft's new Windows 365 service has made its debut, bringing with it the ability to run Windows on Safari on devices like the iPad and Mac.
As reported by our friends at Windows Central:
The service is primarily aimed at business and enterprise customers and lets users stream Windows via the Cloud. Specs begin with a 1vCPU PC that has 2GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and 12GB of outbound data for $20 a month.
As announced by Microsoft last month:
Thanks to its support for browsers this is an "Apple-friendly" way to run Windows that doesn't require Microsoft to have an app in the App Store for iPad or on macOS. It means users of devices like the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 and the M1 iPad Pro (2021) can now run fully-fledged Windows on their devices in-browser thanks to the power of the cloud.
For those who don't want Windows via the cloud, but need a solution for Mac, Parallels has confirmed that it is working to bring Windows 11 to the Mac in a future software update.
