Apple's Boot camp technical support documentation shows that new MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro will no longer support running Windows 7 through boot Camp .

  Book camp in the new Apple notebook only supports Windows 8 or later versions of Windows , so users will no longer be able to use boot camp to install Windows 7. Boot Camp is an apple-provided software that can help Mac users install Windows systems.

In addition, the 2013 Mac Pro will no longer support Windows 7 through the boot camp. However, some Mac computers released by Apple in 2014 will still support the installation of Windows 7, including the 2014 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.

Although boot camp no longer supports Windows 7, you can still run Windows 7 virtual machines on a Mac computer with virtualization software such as VMware Fusion or parallels.

  Given the age of Windows 7, it's not surprising that Apple has stopped supporting Windows 7 . Microsoft released Windows 7 in 2009 and published Windows 8 in 2012. Although it is 6 years old, Windows 7 is still a widely used version of Windows.

Mac users don't want Apple to stop Mac Pro and the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro for Windows 7 support. Many Windows users have not yet upgraded to Windows 8 due to price and user interface issues. The user interface for Windows 8 differs greatly from Windows 7.

Microsoft will officially release Windows 10 later this year, which could lead to upgrades for Windows 7 users. Windows 10 blends some of the user interface elements of Windows 7 and Windows 8 to compromise and may be suitable for many different user needs. Microsoft has not yet announced the price of Windows 10, but users of Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 will be free to upgrade.
