Upgrading from 64-bit versions of Windows

You can upgrade existing 64-bit installations of Windows 7, or 8.1 to Windows 10. You need at least 10 GB of free space on your Windows partition. If you have Windows 8.0, update to Windows 8.1 before upgrading to Windows 10.
  1. Use the list at the end of this article to make sure you have a Mac that supports Windows 10.
  2. Start your Mac from OS X.
  3. When your Mac desktop appears, choose App Store from the Apple menu. Click the Updates tab in the App Store window to check for software updates. Make sure OS X and your Mac firmware are up to date.
  4. Start your Mac from the version of Windows you currently have installed.
  5. Open Apple Software Update for Windows and install available updates, including the FaceTime Camera Update.
  6. Use the Windows installer to upgrade Windows.
  7. After installation is complete, open Apple Software Update for Windows again and install available updates to make sure the Windows Support Software (drivers) for Boot Camp are up to date. As part of driver installation, your Mac might restart one or more times. 
After driver installation is complete, log in to Windows to begin using Windows 10 on your Mac.

Upgrading from 32-bit versions of Windows

If you have an existing 32-bit installation of Windows on your Mac, you'll need to back up your important files so that you can remove the existing Windows partition and install a 64 bit version of Windows.
  1. Back up any important files from your Windows partition.
  2. Use Boot Camp Assistant to remove the existing Windows partition.
  3. Then, use Boot Camp Assistant to install a 64-bit version of Windows 10 on your Mac. 
  4. After you're finished installing Windows, copy your important files back to your Windows drive.

Features supported in Windows 10

Boot Camp 6 includes support for the following features of your Mac in Windows 10.
You can install Windows 10 on an internal drive in your Mac. Boot Camp Assistant helps you create a partition on your drive that's compatible with Windows. When you install Windows on a Mac that includes a Fusion Drive, the Windows partition is created on the mechanical hard drive part of the Fusion Drive (not the SSD).
After you install Windows, you can install the latest version of iTunes for Windows to listen to your music or play videos. You'll need to authorize Windows to play music or videos you've purchased from the iTunes Store.
If some features aren't working when you start your Mac from Windows 10, try reinstalling Boot Camp support software using Boot Camp Assistant.
