    I have been trying to find out about this but most of the questions are about PD 16, is the only option to update to PD 16 or PD 15 will still work but with limited functionality?

    Hello, Parallels Desktop only partly compatible with macOS 11 Big Sur.
    Please check this out for more information.

    Hi, this information isn't very helpful now Big Sur has been released as a full upgrade. These details only refer to beta version of the OS.
    Is there a more up to date page you can give us please?

    Can you please confim v 15 works with Big Sur? ive tried to run it and its says :
    "Parallels Desktop cannot be started because some of the required components are missing from the operating system of your Mac."
    and it wont run. i only bought it 5 monts ago surely your not making me buy the same product twice.

    Would like to know as well. The current documentation I've been able to find has no details on the partial compatibility of PD15 with Big Sur.
