- Universal Control won't be available at launch, however.
- Apple says the feature is now coming 'later this fall'.
Apple has confirmed that Universal Control, one of the most hotly-anticipated features of macOS Moneterey, will not be available at launch when the new software rolls out.
As we reported yesterday:
However, Apple's website states that Universal Control will not be available until later this fall.
Universal Control was perhaps the most exciting feature announced as part of macOS Monterey. From Apple:
The feature has been absent from Monterey's various betas, although did show up recently. However it still isn't functional and clearly, Apple doesn't think the feature is ready to push out to customers just yet. The news comes as Apple unveiled its new MacBook Pro (2021) featuring all-new Apple silicon in the form of the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. The new best MacBook also features a 120Hz Liquid Retina XDR display just like the M1 iPad Pro (2021), and also features returning ports for HDMI and the SD card as well as powerful MagSafe charging.
Powerful computing for all
The newest and best
The 14-inch MacBook Pro (2021) comes with an M1 Pro or M1 Max SoC that's fast, secure, and available with the most memory and storage options. Did we mention that incredible display and that it comes with MagSafe?!
