Parallels Desktop 14 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for developers, testers, and experienced power users running Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 or later, this software download of Parallels Desktop 14 Pro Edition includes a 1-year license and is tailored for those who need performance and functionality for running non-Mac applications on a Mac. Easily switch between Mac and Windows applications, launch Windows applications from the Mac dock, and use Mac gestures in Windows. Use the Touch Bar with Windows applications, as well as copy and paste or drag and drop between Windows and Mac. Run Windows applications inside a virtual machine, or develop and test your app or website across dozens of different operating systems, and troubleshoot using Microsoft's Visual Studio plug-in or network simulator. You can also enjoy nested virtualization and guest OS debugging, plus use Vagrant, Jenkins, or other development tools of your trade.

Parallels Desktop runs on macOS High Sierra (10.13.6 or later), Sierra (10.12.6 or later), El Capitan (10.11.6 or later), and also supports macOS Mojave 10.14, as well as a variety of operating systems, including Windows 10, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions, as well as older versions of Windows. The Installation Assistant helps optimizes your virtual machine settings and performance for your primary usage scenario, such as productivity, design, development, testing, or gaming. Allocate up to 32 virtual CPUs and 128GB of virtual memory per virtual machine. 24/7 premium support is included, as is Parallels Toolbox, with over 30 utilities to help simplify everyday tasks, such as cleaning your drive, securing private files, taking screenshots, or downloading videos, all with a single click.

Virtual Machines that were created in Parallels Desktop version 3 or 4 and never run in any other version are not going to work in Parallels Desktop 14.

General Features

Pro Edition vs. Standard Edition
When compared to the Standard Edition, the Pro Edition of Parallels Desktop 14 also features:
  • 128GB virtual memory for each virtual machine
  • 32 virtual CPUs for each virtual machine
  • Integration With Chef/Ohai/Docker
  • Network conditioner to simulate speeds and test
  • Visual Studio plug-in
  • Debug, dump VM, or start an SSH session from menu
  • Support for business cloud services
  • Premium 24/7 phone and email support (30 days for the Standard Edition)
  • What's New?

  • Up to a 200% performance improvement on the iMac Pro (audio and video encoding, AI, 3D modelling, cryptography, and other complex math calculations workloads) thanks to AVX512 processor instructions set support
  • Up to 80% faster application launch
  • Up to 10% faster boot time
  • Up to 30% faster suspend operation on APFS partition
  • Up to 130% more frames per second in Shared Camera
  • Up to 17% more frames per second in Coherence view mode
  • The Mac's camera shared with Windows consumes up to 3x less CPU resources
  • Graphics
  • The new "Auto" mode for graphics allows Windows 8 and later to use more than 2GB of Mac system memory for graphics, while allowing Windows applications to use it when possible. To use this feature, you must update Parallels Tools first
  • Not all amount of assigned graphics memory is locked by the virtual machine - the amount which is not used is returned to Mac
  • Parallels Desktop 14 now features improved OpenGL support for enhanced graphics, with notable improvements in SketchUp 2017/2018, CTVox, DIALux 8, and OriginLab
  • Improved the way a virtual machine is displayed on 4K+ monitors
  • Improved the way Windows is displayed on an external non-Retina monitor when the "Best for external displays" option is selected
  • Improved the way a virtual machine is displayed in Coherence on a Retina monitor
  • Improved the way a virtual machine is displayed in Coherence
  • Reduced the number of graphical artifacts when switching a virtual machine between view modes
  • Improved the way a virtual machine is displayed on multiple monitors when the macOS "Displays have separate Spaces" option is turned off. Instead of the black screen on one of the monitors, now the virtual machine is displayed on all screens
  • To avoid black screen and slow functioning, Parallels Desktop doesn't allow a virtual machine to switch to Coherence or Full Screen if there's not enough graphics memory. Instead, there appears a message prompting how to increase the virtual machine graphics memory
  • Resoled an issue with virtual machine windows flashing black during resize when the 3D acceleration is turned off
  • macOS 10.14 Mojave
  • Parallels Desktop 14 supports Dark Mode. Support for additional Mojave features, which are currently in development, will be tested, finalized, and introduced around the forthcoming public release of Mojave
  • Use the macOS Continuity Camera feature in Windows (insert pictures from your iPhone or iPad into Windows applications)
  • Quick Look in Windows got the same quick actions as in macOS
  • When you take a screenshot from the Edit menu, Parallels Desktop uses the Mojave technology to take screenshots

    Parallels Desktop may need to be updated once Mojave is officially released
  • Integration with Mac
  • Use the camera (connected to Mac) that supports up to 4K resolutions in a virtual machine
  • Use the Touch Bar to work with more Windows applications: OneNote, Microsoft Visio, Microsoft Visual Studio, AutoCAD, Autodesk Revit, Quicken, QuickBooks Desktop, and SketchUp
  • Support for pressure sensitivity in Windows. You can draw in Windows apps like Microsoft PowerPoint, Leonardo or Photoshop depending on the pressure you apply to the trackpad or using a Wacom tablet connected to Mac or using apps like Astropad
  • The size of the virtual machine hard disk (.hdd file) is optimized automatically in the background by means of native Windows defragmentation. This feature works in Windows 8 or later
  • A paused virtual machine resumes automatically when you drag a file to its window
  • You get notified when a USB device you're trying to connect is being used by some macOS application or process
  • Improved the dialogs appearing when you connect a new USB device or external monitor - you can remember your choice and see where to change it later
  • The Start menu closes automatically when you start a Windows application from the Touch Bar
  • Improved the way virtual machine files are associated with Mac's applications
  • Security
  • Backing up a virtual machine with Time Machine has been simplified. Now if you want to add a virtual machine to the backup list or exclude it from this list, just do what you need in the Time Machine preferences
  • Backing up a virtual machine with Acronis True Image has been improved
  • Some virtual machine controls are greyed out when Parallels Tools are being updated. This is done to prevent Windows from damage
  • Usability
  • The "Free Up Disk Space" dialog has been redesigned and simplified. Now you can use it to reduce the amount of disk space occupied by all your virtual machines
  • Parallels Desktop offers to increase the virtual disk size when Windows is running out of disk space
  • Parallels Desktop prompts you to save disk space by importing the Boot Camp partition (i.e. creating a Boot Camp virtual machine) and then deleting the partition. All its contents will remain in a virtual machine and Parallels Desktop will optimize the amount of disk space being used
  • Many UI messages and warnings have been rephrased. In order not to bother users with the term "virtual machine," the virtual machine name will be used instead
  • As most of Windows customers have switched from Windows 8 to Windows 10, the "Enable swipe from edges" option is disabled by default in order not to confuse users
  • Users are notified 5 minutes before maintenance starts
  • Users are notified if Windows didn't perform maintenance for 30 days
  • Users can start maintenance manually
  • Parallels Desktop Help is no longer stored on your Mac. Instead, it's displayed from the web. This means Parallels Desktop occupies up to 200MB less disk space and update the user guide in real time
  • For new virtual machines, the SmartGuard backup functionality now keeps 3 snapshots by default (not to occupy additional disk space)
  • The Resource Monitor has been redesigned. Use it to check how much CPU and memory is consumed by your Mac and all virtual machines
  • Monitor the virtual machine CPU usage in the virtual machine status bar
  • Optimized the "Productivity" and "Games only" virtual machine profiles
  • Use the "Show and hide spaces on all displays simultaneously" option to switch to the virtual machine or non-virtual machine Spaces on all displays simultaneously
  • When inactive, Windows doesn't pause automatically for some time after start. This prevents Windows from being paused when the boot process hasn't finished yet
  • Increased the size of the progress bar on Dock icons for users to comfortably see how the progress is going on
  • New splash screens inform the user when a virtual machine is starting, shutting down, switching to Coherence or Full Screen, etc.
  • A notification informs the user when archiving or unarchiving a virtual machine is finished
  • When you click a macOS notification that a technical data report has been sent, the report ID is automatically copied to the clipboard
  • The "Sign In" screen has been redesigned and simplified
  • The "Special characters" menu item in the virtual machine's "Edit" menu has been renamed to "Emoji & Symbols" for consistency with Mac
  • Linux Support
  • Install Ubuntu 18.04, Fedora 28, and Linux Mint 19 in virtual machines right from Parallels Desktop

  • Support for Keyboard Layouts
