Universal Control no longer in beta in macOS Monterey 12.4 and iPadOS 15.5

Universal Control is no longer a “beta” feature as the beta designation was removed in the release candidate versions of macOS Monterey 12.4 and iPadOS 15.5 distributed to developers and public beta testers today.

Colored universal control function
Apple released Universal Control as part of macOS Monterey 12.3 and iPadOS 15.4 in March, and it has had a beta label since launch as Apple has worked to iron out bugs and fix minor issues.

Removed the beta designation next to the Universal Controls options in System Preferences > Display > Universal Controls. Similarly, on the iPad, under System Preferences > AirPlay > Handoff > Cursors and Keyboard, there is no longer a beta label.

Universal Control was designed to let you use a single mouse/trackpad and keyboard across multiple Macs and iPads, with the feature designed to work automatically with macOS Monterey 12.3 and later and iPadOS 15.4 or later functions.

Although Universal Control was available in a beta feature, it worked well for users, which is why Apple was able to remove the beta designation just a few months after the feature first launched.
