Windows 10 Support Added to Apple's Bootcamp

By James O Malley on at

Good news for any Mac users wanting to give Windows 10 a try. Apple has revealed that it will be adding support for Windows 10 in Mac OS's Bootcamp in a forthcoming system update.

Bootcamp, the installation app which makes it easy to dual-boot your Mac with Windows, will apparently require a Windows 10 disc image (ISO), installation DVD or USB thumbstick to work, and it appears it will only support the 64 bit version of Windows 10.

If you follow through the installation process using it, it will automatically install drivers for the various Mac-specific hardware features including your Apple keyboard/mouse/trackpad, the SD card reader, Thunderbolt port, and even USB-C if you've got a 2015 New Macbook.

If you want to install Windows 10, check for Mac software updates now to download the latest version of Bootcamp. There's a full list of Macs that will support Windows 10 through Bootcamp below. [Apple Insider]
