Apple: Launched in mid-October, the macOS Monterey operating system differentially featured Universal Control, which should be out by the end of the year. However, this Monday (13) is Apple revealed that it has officially delayed the launch of the new feature until 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 the spring of 2022 – the period starting in late March and running through the end of May.
The feature is one of the most anticipated features of the new system as it allows users to use Mac keyboard and mouse on iPad by simply dragging windows between devices. In fact, the functionality does not need to be activated, just plug the devices into 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, saying the feature would be released until late fall. Since fall is coming to an end next week, it’s unlikely Apple would release the feature in the last few days of the scheduled date.
