Plus, running Windows or Linux natively on an ARM Mac requires a new set of drivers and tweaks that may take months or years to develop.

But Apple doesn’t plan to add Boot Camp to its new ARM Macs because it’s just not worth the effort.

Apple started pivoting away from Boot Camp years ago in favor of OS virtualization.
