UTM virtualizes macOS Monterey on Apple Silicon machines


UTM can now virtualize macOS Monterey on Mac M1 running … under macOS Monterey. It may seem unnecessary, but it shows that the virtualization solution open source supports the new framework Virtualization built into the system, which should make life easier for developers and other system administrators.

UTM has long been content to simplify the handling of QEMU, dreaming of designing a virtualization solution for the iPhone and iPad. Far from being discouraged by the limits of iOS and the rules of the App Store, developers have raised their ambitions, and designed a fully integrated virtualization solution for macOS.

With its accessible interface and robust technologies, the small open source allows itself to go back to the references of the field, shaken up by the integration of virtualization technologies within the system. Without an economic model to preserve, UTM shamelessly uses the hypervisor and the framework Virtualization of macOS.

Featured with macOS Big Sur, this framework was reserved for the virtualization of GNU / Linux distributions… perfectly supported by QEMU. But with macOS Monterey, the framework Virtualization can virtualize macOS itself, a must-have feature for developers using Apple Silicon machines.

UTM 3.0 logically integrates this framework to virtualize macOS Monterey, and which you can use with GNU / Linux distributions, although QEMU remains more appropriate. Better yet, the application will take care of downloading a system installation image directly from Apple’s servers, as it does with its own images of GNU / Linux distributions and Windows systems.

To avoid spoiling anything, UTM is giving itself a little facelift, and simplifying its process of creating a virtual machine from scratch. Still in development, UTM 3.0 can be downloaded from Github.
