Universal Control is undoubtedly one of the most eagerly awaited features of macOS Monterey. The feature was first unveiled at WWDC 2021 in June. However, this feature was absent from the macOS 12 and iPadOS 15 betas. Hence, we initially thought that it would be delayed until a later release.
The feature is now identified as a “beta” feature in macOS Monterey beta 10. However, it is still unavailable to users.
Universal control allows users to control an iPad or even another Mac using their main computer’s keyboard and mouse. Apple demonstrated it earlier this year. Unfortunately, Apple never included the feature in macOS or iOS betas, and almost all references to it are outdated.
Apple has made some minor modifications to the Universal Control settings page, which is now designated “beta,”. Anyways, the official release of macOS Monterey is fast approaching.
By forcibly enabling Universal Control on a Mac running macOS Monterey beta 10, 9to5Mac was able to observe these changes. When you open the System Preferences app and go to the Display settings, you’ll see a label indicating that it can be activated. However, it is important to note that it’s an unfinished feature so it might not work as intended.

Apple might release the feature soon
Despite the fact that Universal Control is still disabled by default, this update signals that Apple may launch macOS Monterey with this new feature. Even if it is still buggy. If you have two Macs running macOS Monterey beta, you can use some internal system files to enable Universal Control between them.
On October 18, Apple will host a special event to unveil new Macs and potentially the official macOS Monterey release date.
