Apple adds full Windows 10 support to all recent Macs

Mac users are now able to dual boot Windows 10 on their Apple-made devices thanks to a just released update to the Boot Camp setup assistant.

Boot Camp 6 is able to partition an existing Mac HDD or SSD and configure it for Windows 10 installation. It includes drivers to enable support for Mac features such USB 3, USB-C and Thunderbolt ports, the built-in SD card reader and CD drive, and a user's Apple keyboard, trackpad and mouse.

The new drivers are also available for Mac users with an existing Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 partition who wish to claim their free upgrade to Windows 10. Apple recommends installing any pending software updates in OS X before installing Windows 10.

Boot Camp 6 can only be used to install the 64-bit version of Windows 10. The 32-bit version of Windows 10 is not compatible with Mac.

The majority of Macs released from the middle of 2012 onwards are compatible with Windows 10. The complete list is as follows:
