Apple Postpones MacOS Monterey Universal Control To 2022


Apple: Launched in mid-October, the operating system macOS Monterey had as a differential the Universal Control, which would be released by the end of the year. This Monday (13), however, Apple revealed that it has officially postponed the launch of the new feature to the first half of 2022.

The postponement was revealed on one of the iPadOS 15 and macOS Monterey resource pages, indicating that Universal Control will be available in Spring 2022 — the period starts in late March and runs through the end of May.

Officially postponed

The feature is one of the most anticipated features of the new system, as it will allow users to use Mac keyboard and mouse on iPad with a simple drag of windows between devices. In fact, the functionality doesn’t need to be activated, just connect the devices to the same Apple ID and place them side by side.

Apple initially revealed that Universal Control would be released alongside macOS Monterey, but delayed it and said the feature would be released until late fall. As autumn ends next week, it is unlikely that Apple would release the feature in the last few days of the planned date.
