Announced on WWDC 2021, Followed by Mikos 12 Monterey until last year Mikos 11 Big Pig, And will be officially released as a free upgrade by the end of 2021 (probably around September). The public beta released today allows people to test the initial version of the operating system before launch.
While this allows people to get a feel for the MacOS 12 Monterey and some (but not all – more in a moment) of its new features, it’s also useful for Apple, because the public beta use Performers are encouraged to report and share in any way. They face. Apple’s giants can then work on fixing these issues before the final application becomes available.
Because of this, you are advised to only download the MacOS 12 Monterey Public Beta on a device that you do not rely on every day, as there are likely to be bugs.
Oh, where is the universal control?
While the MacOS 12 Monterey Public Beta will allow you to try out some of the new features that will come to the Mac thanks to the upcoming operating system, a very interesting feature, Universal Control, is still missing (because it wasn’t included). Previous developer preview).
Universal Control allows you to use any Mac or MacBook mouse, trackpad and keyboard to control other Macs and even iPads without interruption. All you need to do is keep them close to each other, and then move your mouse cursor to the edge of the screen, then forward, it will show up on the next device.
This feature was demonstrated in the WWDC and it looked amazingly cool. This can be a really useful feature for people who use multiple Apple devices and we can’t wait to try it out.
Although Universal Control takes on existing features, such as continuity and hand-off elements, its implementation can be a bit more complicated, which is why it has not been included in the public beta.
Apple usually releases several beta before its official release, so universal control may follow. However, if this is a feature you are eager to try, you may be better off waiting.
