Just today, Apple released the macOS Monterey beta 9 to its developers. As we are moving closer to a fall release, the feature that we are missing out on is “full availability to test the universal control.” Developers are looking forward to seeing that if Apple has finally enabled this feature in the ninth beta.
macOS Monterey beta 9 is currently available through OTA for the Apple developers, and its build number is 21A5543b. Here’s a download link for the new macOS Monterey Beta 9.
There are a variety of new features, and updates added to the macOS 12 Monterey. These features include an entirely redesigned Safari, enhanced shortcut apps, and a premium focus mode. Other features include Quick Notes, Universal Control, and Airplay to Mac. All of these features are fully redesigned and customized to make it work across multiple Apple devices.
Although developers have been impatiently waiting for the Universal Control to be fully available in the previous 8 Monterey beta builds, the option isn’t fully functional for them. As the new macOS Monterey beta nine is launched, let’s see if the feature is available in the new beta.
It is worth mentioning here that beta 5 gave the ability to the developers to partially enable Universal control. Still, having full control has its own charm. Keep in mind that it is not ideal for installing betas on your primary machines as these betas aren’t passed by the Apple has bugs free, and it will disrupt your performance and might cause many major issues to your device. However, if you are keen on installing beta’s on your device, consider installing it on a second Mac, if possible.
Although macOS Monterey has reached its beta 9 phase, still it’s a long way to go from here. Additionally, beta 9 is the most stable version of macOS Monterey.
