The middle acquaintance The Verge highlights an article in which supposedly the option to install Windows 10 will be left to Microsoft since it should change the Windows version for Apple ARM computers leaving aside the current x86 version. So the new Mac with Apple Silicon could be left out of the W10 installation option according to Microsoft's own statements.

In Cupertino they have to create new drivers for it to work, in Microsoft they have to release these licenses and both have to work on this so that users who want to can work with Windows in Boot Camp. Nothing was said about the option to use Windows with VMWare, Parallels or others on Macs with ARM, but certainly For many users the main option to work with Windows on the Mac is Boot Camp.
