First Beta of MacOS Monterey 12.2 Available for Testing
Apple has released the first beta version of MacOS Monterey 12.2 to users enrolled in the beta testing program for MacOS system software.
Presumably the new macOS Monterey 12.2 beta will focus on resolving remaining issues and problems with MacOS Monterey including bug fixes and enhancements to the operating system, and will likely not include any major changes.
It is unclear if Universal Control, the feature that allows a Mac to control multiple Macs and iPads with a single mouse and keyboard, will arrive in MacOS Monterey 12.2. Apple recently said that Universal Control would be delayed until spring of 2022, which could indicate it won’t be out until MacOS Monterey 12.3, 12.4, or even 12.5.
Users enrolled in the macOS beta testing program can find the MacOS Monterey 12.2 beta 1 build available via Software Update.
The most recent stable builds of macOS are the freshly released macOS Monterey 12.1 update for Monterey users, and macOS Big Sur 11.6.2 for Big Sur users.
Being able to back up to Time Machine again would be nice.
I know. Now that time machine doesn’t backup the OS, if you have a hardware failure, you are screwed if you don’t have a high-speed data connection. You can’t even re-install the OS without an internet connection anymore.
