Could we see soon ArcGIS pro tuning natively on Mac OS. The performance of mac is better by far than windows. I think we need to see soon version for Mac OS.

not likely ever.  The decision was made many years ago around the time of the inception of arcgis.

It is easier to configure a mac to run windows than it is to deploy code for two different platforms.

Here are your options, some are even platform independent

Ahmed makes a good point about Mac performance. I have both systems, but I know which I prefer. 

Has anyone tried Parallels version 17 yet for this?

Do you, or did you, work for ESRI? (Before you 'sort of retired')

No, just a long time user that was there when the apple fell from the esri tree.  Boot camp is recommended and the cloud is the future.... which will remove hardware dependencies for the most part.
