Full-featured system emulator and virtual machine host.

What is UTM for Mac

UTM is a full featured system emulator and virtual machine host for iOS and macOS. It is based off of QEMU. In short, it allows you to run Windows, Linux, and more on your Mac, iPhone, and iPad

UTM employs Apple's Hypervisor virtualization framework to run ARM64 operating systems on Apple Silicon at near native speeds. On Intel Macs, x86/x64 operating system can be virtualized. In addition, lower performance emulation is available to run x86/x64 on Apple Silicon as well as ARM64 on Intel. For developers and enthusiasts, there are dozens of other emulated processors as well including: ARM32, MIPS, PPC, and RISC-V. Your Mac can now truly run anything.

  • Full system emulation (MMU, devices, etc) using QEMU
  • 30+ processors supported including x86_64, ARM64, and RISC-V
  • VGA graphics mode using SPICE and QXL
  • Text terminal mode
  • USB devices
  • JIT based acceleration using QEMU TCG
  • Frontend designed from scratch for macOS 11 and iOS 11+ using the latest and greatest APIs
  • Create, manage, run VMs directly from your device

What's new in UTM

Version 2.1.2:
  • Fixed QEMU issue causing crash running x86 Windows on M1 (thanks @kwhr0) (#2630)
  • Fixed crash due to bad drive id (#2614)
  • Properly delete imported/created drives on a new VM when canceled out (#2576)
  • Fixed bad CPU core configuration on SPARC (#2651)
  • Improvement to zh-Hant translation (thanks @pan93412) (#2595)
  • Fixed an unusable CD drive always showing up in Windows x86 (thanks @conath) (#2538)
  • (macOS) Fixed an issue with auto resolution changing with SPICE installed (#2587)
  • (macOS) Fixed a crash when starting a VM after shutting down (#2622)
  • (macOS) New global setting to (try to) only use performance cores: when set, if a VM does not manually specify a core count, instead of using the maximum number of cores on the system, UTM will use only the number of performance cores. Note this does not guarantee only the performance cores are used but only that the number of cores seen by the guest is lower. (#2557)
  • (macOS) Fixed screen tearing/glitches on Windows and improved framebuffer rendering performance (#2569)
  • (macOS) When SPICE tools are not properly set up, attempting to resize the window will now "revert" the size if the resolution does not get changed by the guest.
  • (iOS) Fixed crash when launching with Jitterbug or other imobiledevice tools
  • (iOS) Fixed Cydia install on iOS 11 (#2618)

Version: 2.1.1
UTM is a great Demo for showing that Windows 10 can run on an M1 Mac. It's 800x600 resolution, however, not all that practical. It really needs at least 1024x768 or 1080p.
