Let’s begin with a discussion of Universal Control. In the beta version of the feature, I was astonished by how well it all worked together. With Universal Control, Apple gadget users may utilize the same input device on numerous Macs and iPads at the same time.

On a MacBook Pro 13 and an iPad mini, the functionality functioned just as stated. A bridge appeared between my iPad and Mac when they were upgraded to iOS 15.4 and Monterey 12.3, allowing my cursor to immediately traverse between the two. Using the function is as easy as positioning the devices near one other and moving your cursor beyond the phony wall in Platform 9 and 3/4 manner.

Moving files from an iPad to a Mac is as simple as dragging and dropping them from one place to another. If you don’t already have a Mac keyboard and trackpad, you may now use them on your iPad with this app. On all eligible Macs, Mac OS X Monterey 12.3 may now be downloaded via the System Preferences Software Update section. Even though Universal Control has been made accessible to everyone, Apple is still describing it as a beta feature.

Another voice for Siri, as well as 37 new emoji, are part of the software update. For M1 Macs, Spatial Audio now offers dynamic head tracking in addition to the previously-mentioned emojis of melting face and biting lip, as well as hands in love and bubbles.

Apple’s newest iPad and iPhone operating systems, iOS 15.4 and iPadOS 15.4, were also published today, one week after the company unveiled its new Mac Studio, Studio Display and iPhone SE at its “Peek peek” event. Face ID unlocking your iPhone while wearing a mask is a major new feature for iOS, as opposed to Universal Control support for tablets.
