    For anyone else reading this- the latest parallels update makes Kali Linux on an m1 Mac perfect (as far as I can see). Follow directions here: https://gist.github.com/warecrash/f35d4f9a822c452b0c54bbdb47c0c9a5 and then install parallels tools (you have to cp the mounted iso to a local folder and chmod u+x on the install script to run it) but once installed copy/paste works, display sizes up to 4K work, and sharing folders with Mac works (ie share your mac Dropbox folder, so it doesn't matter that there is no arm version of Dropbox). Haven't found anything that doesn't work yet (all the usual kali tools, burpsuite, etc)

    @MatthewS29 how do you install parallels tools. If i mount image and try to install, it prompts that these parallels tools are not supported for arm architecture.

    The Kali 2021.1 release is out, which includes ISOs so people don't need to upgrade from Debian. Parallels still doesn't recognize the installer ISO, but you can just hit continue, and it will boot just fine.

    Installation was smooth using the Kali arm64 iso. Trying to go fullscreen in the VM doesn't scale to the entire screen and the mouse becomes non-responsive.
