Tech giant Apple Inc. has upgraded its MacBook Air, Pro models and dropped the Boot Camp support for Windows 7. This means it will only work with Windows 8 and later operating systems.
Boot Camp is an Apple software which allows the installation of Microsoft Windows on the Mac machines. With the new update, Boot Camp will no longer support the older versions of Windows Operating Systems on its revamped Mac lineup.
According to the report, the Mac computers that were released last year continued to offer installations of Windows 7. However, 2014 MacBook Air and Pro models will be the last Apple notebooks that will support the Windows OS.
Boot Camp is Apple’s software designed to allow its Mac users to install Microsoft Windows on their machines.
The users of refreshed Macs with virtualization software such as Parallels and VMware Fusion can still use Windows 7.
Among all the Windows operating system, Windows 7 is the heaviest one. Microsoft is all set to release its latest Windows 10 with biometric authentication support this summer. The company will be offering a free upgrade for the users of Windows 7, 8, and 8.1.
