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

Universal control is no longer a “beta” feature, with the beta labeling removed in the macOS Monterey 12.4 and iPadOS 15.5 release candidate versions seeded to developers and public beta testers earlier today.

Universal Control Colored Function
Apple in March released Universal Control as part of macOS Monterey 12.3 and iPadOS 15.4, and since launch it has had a beta label as Apple has been working on bug fixes and minor bug fixes.

Under System Preferences > Displays > ‌Universal Control, the beta labeling next to the Universal Control‌ options has been removed. Likewise, there is no longer a beta label on the iPad under System Preferences > AirPlay > Handoff > Cursor and keyboard.

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

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