Apple today released the first beta of an upcoming macOS Monterey 12.4 update to developers for testing, with the new update coming three weeks after the release of macOS Monterey 12.3, which introduced the support in charge of Universal Control.

Registered developers can download the beta through the Apple Developer Center and once the appropriate profile is installed, betas will be available through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences.

According to Apple’s release notes, ‌Universal Control‌ in the new iPadOS 15.5 and ‌macOS Monterey‌ 12.4 updates is not compatible with machines running macOS 12.3 or iPadOS 15.4, so Apple suggests that, as a workaround, users are updating their ‌Universal Control‌ devices to the new beta versions.

We don’t know yet if there are more features in ‌macOS Monterey‌ 12.4, but if we find anything new after installing the software, we’ll update this article.
