VMware to Orka

The end of VMware + Mac

“VMware currently [has] no plans to support Apple Mac silicon. Moving forward, vSphere ESXi 7.x will be the final release supporting Apple Mac platforms on x86.” posted Aug. 3, 2022

VMware will not guarantee support of Ventura or other future versions of macOS that your development team needs. It’s time to transition to a new virtualization tool.


October 2022

Expected release of macOS Ventura, not guaranteed support by VMware.

March 2023

Expected release of new Xcode version, requiring the latest macOS.
