Apple announced its Universal Control feature some time ago, this specific feature allowing users to control multiple devices through a single keyboard and mouse.
Users have been waiting for the same for some time, but it looks like it won’t launch with macOS Monterey. In case you missed it, the Cupertino giant has announced that the new version of the operating system will arrive to users from October 25, with the feature page showing a very particular change.
The page has been updated to mention that Universal Control will be available later this fall, as MacRumors noticed. At Apple’s WWDC 2021, Craig Federhigi took the stage to drag a file from an iPad from the screen of a MacBook to drop it onto an iMac, demonstrating the capabilities of universal control.
Doesn’t Universal Control come with the stable version of macOS Monterey?
This is not something very new, as the feature is a simple combination of technologies that have been in the works for a few years, but, if stage presentation was anything, this new feature will be quite easy to use and useful to use. some, if not most.
For the curious, beta versions of macOS Monterey have been available since the announcement, but Universal Control has not been seen yet, which means that at the time of writing, no public user has had a chance to try this feature. .
Another feature that has apparently been similar to the Universal Control rollout is SharePlay, which escaped the iOS and iPadOS 15 version. However, in its case, it was at least present in a few beta versions.
On Apple’s macOS Monterey page, SharePlay and some other features are marked with an asterisk that says they “arrive later this fall,” but, in the case of Universal Control, there’s a separate post that says “available more. late this fall “.
What else do we know about deploying the latest version of the operating system?
