MacOS Monterey is live: Find out what’s new and is your Mac eligible for the upgrade.

Unveiled at the World Wide Developer’s Conference, Apple’s macOS Monterey the latest version of the beautifully built operating system for the company’s laptops and desktops is rolling out for supported Mac devices. The new system brings around several changes and also drops support for a few of the older devices. Although Apple users with the older Intel version of Macs can still get the upgrade they will be missing out of several of the new features that depend on the Apple Silicon. 

New in macOS Monterey

One of the most interesting of the new features coming to the latest macOS is what Apple calls Universal Control, this new feature lets users use one single set of Keyboard,Mouse and/or trackpad across all your Mac and iPad devices. This is build over iCloud and allows to move the pointer from the screen of one device to another and also dragging and dropping files across your devices.

Another new and interesting feature coming to the Mac is Shortcuts. The same app that allows users to automate and create a bunch of very interesting features into your iPhone and iPad. Now that Macs run on chips based on the same architecture Apple is bringing the comparatively easy to use app to the Mac replacing the Automator which was a bit of a hassle to use for a non tech person. 

Although the Automator app will still be supported for those who have created very complex workflows in it, but that we expect will only last till the Shortcuts app catches up. Apple also made it possible to import automator workflows to the Shortcuts app.

AirPlay to Mac in the macOS Monterey now makes it possible for iPhones and iPads to stream media to your iMac, Mac mini or Mac Pro using AirPlay. The feature wirelessly as well as over a USB connection. 

Safari Monterey

The new feature list also includes likes of a new and updated Safari with a UI refresh, Focus which allows users to focus on what’s important at the specific time, SharePlay allowing content sharing over video calls and conferences, Live Text to use the neural engine to make text from images interactive, newer and more detailed Map and more.

This was our favorite new feature coming to macOS Monterey. Universal Control allows users to use one set of mouse/ touchpad and keyboard with multiple devices places side to side.
All you need to do is place your second device beside your primary device and then move the cursor to the edge of the screen and then further to the next screen.
You can even drag and drop files from one device to another as if it was all a single device.
The Universal Control demo that apple show at the WWDC was definitely our favorite part of the event.
