MacOS Monterey is the new version and brings great integration with iPadOS

Last year’s release brought a big visual change, as well as big changes to essential applications like Safari, Maps and Messaging. Now, with macOS Monterey, Apple is trying to further improve its Mac OS.

There is support for sharing your music and movies with SharePlay, and a few other features that have also been announced for iOS 15, one of the most notable new features in macOS Monterey being Universal Control, an evolved form of Apple’s Continuity that enables seamlessly use the keyboard and mouse on Macs and iPads simultaneously.

This is something that third-party applications like Across have been offering for some time, but historically it’s been difficult to configure but easy to use. Apple’s advantage, as always, is that it can do most of the setup work on your operating system.

During a demonstration by Craig Federighi, Apple’s vice president of software, Universal Control appears to work as advertised, this integration between an iPad, MacBook Pro and, again, iPad easily working.

Besides, you’ll also be able to stream your iPad screen and music to your Apple computer with AirPlay for Mac. The name says it all: it’s another way to make working on multiple Apple devices easier. And just like the classic AirPlay feature, it can make it easy to collaborate with other Apple users. At the very least, it’ll be a smart way to play music on the new iMac’s great speakers.

For the most part, it doesn’t seem like macOS Monterey is all that different from Big Sur. That makes sense, as Apple has hailed last year’s release as one of its biggest design renovations. Still, the company managed to insert some updates to Safari, including thinner tabs and the ability to cram multiple tabs into groups.

Finally, Apple is planning to make automation a little more user-friendly in macOS Monterey with shortcuts. The operating system has some built-in shortcuts, but you’ll also be able to configure your own, as well as import Automator actions. Apple says it will transition from Automator in the next few years – sad news for Mac fanatics, but hopefully good news for more general users who would never be able to discover this tool.

As usual, Apple has already made the Beta version available for developers, and next month a Beta version should appear for consumers, also with the launch of this new version of the operating system scheduled for the fall, at the same time as iOS 15, iPadOS 15 and the new iPhones.
