One of the features that Apple announced back at WWDC 2021 that would be part of an upcoming update to macOS is Universal Control. However, it did not make the public release and was not spotted in subsequent releases and was being delayed again and again, leading to fears that it might be scrapped.
The good news is that Apple has finally decided it is now ready-ish. This is because in the latest public beta for macOS and iPadOS, Universal Control is finally here so if you are in the public beta or are willing to take part in the public beta, you will actually be able to try the feature out ahead of the final public release.
For those who are unfamiliar, Universal Control is basically like a combination of various macOS and iPad features. It allows users to drag and drop contents from a Mac computer onto an iPad in real-time and vice versa. Users can also move their mouse cursor between their devices, meaning that users can quickly move between their devices depending on their needs.
It’s a pretty cool feature and one that many users have been looking forward to, so it’s good to see that at the very least it’s available in beta right now.
