Two weeks after Microsoft released Windows 10 to the public, Apple has updated Boot Camp with support for the latest and greatest OS.

Boot Camp is a multi-boot utility in OS X that lets you install Windows on Intel-based Macs. It handles disk partitioning, installation of Windows device drivers, and also includes a Windows Control Panel applet for selecting the boot operating system.

The updated Boot Camp 6 also includes support for the following features: USB 3, USB-C on the MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2015), Thunderbolt, built-in SD or SDXC card slot, built-in or USB Apple SuperDrive, Apple keyboard, trackpad, and mouse. The update is currently rolling out to OS X 10.10 Yosemite users — if you haven’t seen it yet, use the Mac App Store to check for updates.

Here is the full list of Macs that support Windows 10:

  • MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015)
