UTM

Version 2.2.4

Full-featured system emulator and virtual machine host.

UTM overview

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.

Features:
  • 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 version 2.2.4

Updated on Oct 01 2021

Version 2.2.4:
New Features:
  • (macOS 11.3+ Only) Bridged networking and shared networking support. You can configure it in the Network settings for your VM.
  • (macOS 11+ and iOS 13+) GPU acceleration for OpenGL on Linux. Use `virtio-ramfb-gl` or `virtio-vga-gl` display device and compatible Linux drivers (most modern Linux distros will have it already installed). Windows is not supported because there is currently no virtio-gpu driver for Windows that supports 3D acceleration. Note that newly created VMs will default to a "GPU Supported" display device on supported architectures but existing VMs must manually change the display device in Display settings. GPU acceleration is still an experimental feature, so it may not work in some situations (including many 3D use cases).
  • EFI Boot. By default new VMs created for pc, q35, and virt machines will have EFI enabled. In previous versions, EFI is only enabled for virt machines. Due to compatibility with boot, existing pc and q35 VMs will NOT have EFI enabled and must be manually turned on in Settings -> System -> Advanced Configuration -> UEFI Boot. This may also require you to re-install the bootloader on your VM. As part of this change, EFI variables will also be properly handled (on both ARM and x86 VMs). Note that if you've configured a custom pflash device for your VM, the new UEFI Boot option will take no effect (same as before).
  • QEMU v6.1.0 is now used for the backend.
Changes:
  • Fix crash when setting custom VM icon
  • Disable Port Forwarding feature for bridged networking
  • Fixed memory leak
  • Fix layout issues in settings on macOS Monterey
  • Fix capturing of hotkeys (such as Cmd+Tab)
  • Disable port forwarding options for shared & bridged networking
  • Refactored non-OpenGL rendering code, fixing some random crashes seen in TestFlight reports.
  • Windows BSOD on boot/setup due to `PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA`
  • Settings no longer crash when an error occurs while saving a new VM

    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.
