    I just wanted to confirm that this behaviour is still a thing with Parallels Version 17.1.4 (51567) running the first macOS 13 beta.
    Neither logging in to iCloud nor in to Feedback Assistant works.
    Sure feels like Apple is somehow detecting that the request is coming from a VM and preventing log in somehow.

    Also, I just tried using an App Specific Password-not that it would have been too logical for that to work-but I can report that this is not a solution neither...

    Hello Andreas!
    We know about the issue and keep researching the ways to fix it together with the Apple engineers.

    Hello Lucas,
    Unfortunately, we don't have any updates or available workaround for now.

    Just spend several days chasing this problem. Installing MacOS 12 on Parallels appears to be a different process than other OS's. End up with a .macvm rather than a .pvm, and many Parallels features do not work including ability to modify configuration. Reverted to the preview installation to test Pro features as several error messages indicated the basic version does not support certain terminal commands. No joy. Unable to change the device serial number within the MacOS.

    Yes, macOS virtual machines on M-series computers have some limitations: https://kb.parallels.com/en/128867 . I've just shared your feedback with our R&D Team.

    I bought parallels so that I could run Mac VMs, I don't complain and I've been patient with this issue but I am not likely to renew if this isn't fixed. I honestly need 1 app to work, the FortiClient for my work VPN, however they don't have one that works with the M1, except that the IPad app works. I can use it on my iMac but I'm not allowed to put my Mac on the work network. Running a vm for work was a good work around but if I copy the IPad app, it asks me to login with my Apple ID for the account that installed the software. I can actually get a Windows VM to run better on my Mac with the ARM version, and the FortiClient from the app store... but at that point I may as well just use my work issued Windows laptop.

    I would just through a million hoops before touching anything windows plastic ugliness, no way

    Why are you talking about a subscription? Just buy the app via one-time-purchase (I still use parallels 15 and can run even Ventura)

    That's quite an achievement considering 16.5 was the first version that even worked on M-series Macs.

    I was referring to my iMac 27" (Intel), my bad for not being obvious. Still ...subscription is a scam is basically my point.

    And how is that helping anyone here in the M-series forum? We all know that the macOS VM limitations don't exist on Intel Macs.

    If you had read my initial message, sherlock, you'd see that I point out the redundancy of paying the yearly fee for a software that never evolves. This is also true for the M1 version

    Yes, I read that. And nobody except you is talking about the pros and cons of a subscription here. They are looking for a solution to the problem they are having. So please stop taking this thread off topic. If you want to talk about subscriptions, you can create a new thread.

    Wow, so helpful thank you but not the point of my post. I need a basic feature of the OS to work.
    As for the OS, I choose to work in MacOS as my daily driver but I have to work in all 3 OS's for my job. Believe it or not, Windows and Linux actually do some things better than MacOS or do some things that MacOS can't/doesn't.
    Case in point... the Windows store works on a Parallels VM on Apple Silicon, which is the only way the VPN will work there. I need the store in MacOS. Pretty basic functionality to not be able to login with an AppleID at all to a Mac VM.

    Parallels Desktop 18 and _still_ unable to use an Apple ID which makes the whole thing pretty useless. I'll be seeking a refund.

    Is this still not resolved? What about with Ventura? I can't even install Parallel Tools.

    No (of course it's not resolved ), they don't give AS ...if you have ever tried to contact their support, good luck.

    Installing Parallel Tools is no issue for me, Ventura 13.0.1.

    I just purchased Parallels 18 for this very function on my M1 MacBook Air. Time for a refund.
