Universal Control is included in Apple’s latest developer betas for iPadOS and macOS Monterey, indicating that the long-awaited feature will be released soon. Universal Control, which Apple introduced in June at WWDC 2021, is a feature that allows you to use a Mac’s keyboard and mouse with an iPad just by placing the iPad next to the computer. Universal Control, on the other hand, appears to have been more ambitious than Apple imagined, as it has already missed a fall release date, is now due out in the spring, and hadn’t even been released in betas until Thursday.
If the iPadOS 15.4 and macOS Monterey 12.3 betas are installed, Universal Control is activated by default, according to MacRumors, which also posted a screenshot showing three Universal Control settings marked with a beta tag.
The company also released the first iOS 15.4 beta on Thursday, and it lets you use Face ID while wearing a mask and adds new emoji.
