MacOS Monterey will not have Universal Control

As reported by the AppleSWUpdates Twitter account, Apple’s Universal Control feature has been delayed yet again. The company’s website says drag-and-drop functionality won’t arrive until sometime “this spring.”

Universal has yet to appear in either macOS or iPadOS, despite being announced back in June with macOS Monterey and iPadOS 15. The function – which allows users to use one mouse and keyboard for both Mac and iPad devices and drag and drop content between the two – has yet to materialize. 

Universal Control will not be available until this spring for MacOS Monterey

Developers and beta testers have not even been offered Apple Universal Control yet.

In October, Apple updated its website to say that Universal would be available “later this fall,” but it seems the company will not be able to meet its previous estimate.

It seems the company will not meet its earlier estimate despite the end of the fall being just a few days away.

Apple’s 2021 software updates don’t include Universal Control as the only major feature that hasn’t made it to market.

It was disappointing that SharePlay, one of Apple’s marquee features this year, wasn’t included in either iOS 15 or macOS Monterey.

The feature was only available on iOS on October 25th and arrived on macOS today, and other more minor features did not make the cut.
