    A "cool" feature would be the ability to control the fan speed of your mac for times when your laptop gets really hot from watching videos or running certain applications.

    The new MacBooks have passive cooling, so it would be interesting to know if it's been working on the edge.

    Please add fan speed control and performance app that we can change the speed of the cooling system.

    That's not possible without digging really deep into the system and most likely will become obsolete soon due to Apple's decision to block kernel extensions in macOS

    Have a temperature monitor with a display of it in the top bar and a nice app view to see the temperature of the MacBook to ensure it is running as expected

    With all the tools already included in Parallels Tool Box I couldnt resist suggesting a fan control and display of all the parameters of your machine such as fan speed, CPU/GPU/RAM/ETC. temps to make sure everything stays within reasonable temperature while you are working especially running virtual machines.

    such functionality requires very deep integration into macOS' kernel. Apple eradicates kernel extensions from macOS, so unfortunately we cannot provide such feature, although we would love to.

    If not fan controls, what about an internal temperature monitor?
