Apple's Universal Control feature for working across multiple Macs and iPads using a single trackpad has lost its beta label in macOS Monterey 12.4 and iPadOS 15.5.
Apple's macOS Monterey 12.3 update is ready for public consumption, bringing such improvements to your Mac as the new cross-device Universal Control feature, head tracking for spatial audio and other perks. The update was released on Monday, March 14, 2022, alongside iOS 15.4 and iPadOS 15.4 for the iPhone and iPad.
Apple has released iOS 15.4 for the iPhone and iPod touch, as well as iPadOS 15.4 for iPads, bringing new features such as unlocking your iPhone with a mask on.
The third beta of macOS Monterey 12.3 brings changes that make it easier to access and configure the various Universal Control settings on your Mac.
Earlier today, Apple seeded the first betas of iOS 15.4 and iPadOS 15.4 to developers. Unlike the previous update, this one actually has some new features mixed in. Which means it's time to take a quick look at what's new in the upcoming software update.
The tea leaves tried to tell us that things weren't looking so hot for Universal Control. Not when it comes to a release date, anyway. But still we held out hope that one of the coolest features Apple unveiled alongside iPadOS 15 and macOS 12 would see the light of day before the end of 2021.
Apple's Universal Control feature for controlling your iPads and Macs is not coming alongside macOS Monterey 12.1 and iPadOS 15.2 after all, despite earlier promises.
