In the tenth version, in addition to supporting the latest operating systems, including OS X Yosemite, developers optimize such important indicators of performance, as the speed of the virtual machine and run separate applications, battery life and memory savings.

In addition, Parallels worked on their “branded” integration capabilities with a single purpose – to user working with the product at all forgot about what the original operating system he stands, and focused on their tasks.

Perhaps the most interesting feature in OS X Yosemite 8 and iOS is the implementation of the principle of the new Apple – Continuity (association of mobile and desktop devices). In Parallels Desktop for Mac 10, it is expressed in the possibility of a one-click to call the number that the user sees on the screen of your computer in a virtual machine under Windows, synchronized with the Mac iPhone. The “catch” any meaningful phone number on the website (where the user has gone through the Safari browser on Mac OS X or Internet Explorer in Windows). Allocate phone choose Call this number, but the call goes through your mobile.

If you think that something is strictly consumes memory, and you suspect this virtual machine by using the widget, you can immediately check whether she is to blame. You do not need to open a monitoring system.


Now with Windows and other operating systems, you can work in the corporate design of OS X Yosemite – flat icons, wide field at the top of the window, colors and branded wallpapers. Plus, the developers have introduced Vibrancy effect in the start screen of Windows (mode Coherence). Vibrancy – a new principle in the design of interfaces Apple.
