The update fixes a major bug and brings a big novelty.
Apple has rolled out a new beta for its Mac operating system, Monterey. This is version 12.3b2. It is currently only available to users enrolled in the developer beta test program.
Below, find the important changes introduced by this second beta, in addition to the correction of bugs and security vulnerabilities:
- Universal Control: this new feature announced in 2021 is finally operational and allows you to use the same keyboard-mouse pair on a MacBook and an iPad, or several Macs, but also to transfer files by simply dragging and dropping between machines
- Autonomy: fixed a Bluetooth bug causing the battery to melt on portable Macs. As a temporary solution while waiting for macOS 12.3 to be released, consider Jordi Bruin’s proposal . The latter has created two shortcuts to be deployed on his Mac and having the effect of automatically deactivating Bluetooth when the MacBook screen is closed
Here’s what’s new with the previous beta, 12.3b1, of macOS Monterey.
- AirPods : headphones can be updated from the Mac, but still not manually like connecting with iOS
- Emojis: new set of emoticons
