Universal Control in macOS Monterey is now labeled as a beta

Earlier this year, when Apple unveiled macOS Monterey 12 to the world, one of the major bullet points in the features column was "Universal Control." It quickly became one of the more anticipated elements of the desktop operating system, which will let users use a single keyboard and mouse/trackpad across multiple devices. But Apple's making sure to set expectations (at least a little) ahead of the public launch.

iOS 15.1 beta 2 fixes bug causing issues with unlocking iPhone 13 with Apple Watch

The iPhone 13 lineup launched earlier this month. And, unfortunately for some new owners, a bug surfaced that caused the new hardware to not properly communicate with a paired Apple Watch to access the ability to unlock the iPhone 13 with an Apple Watch. This feature is designed to make unlocking an iPhone with Face ID much more streamlined while wearing a mask (but it works without a mask, too, like when wearing certain sunglasses).

SharePlay is back in iOS 15.1 beta

SharePlay, which allows for some pretty great screen sharing options, was first unveiled when Apple debuted iOS 15 earlier this year. However, Apple eventually decided to hold back the feature from the wide launch of the mobile operating system's major update. So while SharePlay isn't available right now, it is still coming.
