Apple has provided a sixth beta and release candidate of macOS Monterey 12.3 to developers, in what may be one of the last before release.

The most recent versions can be downloaded via the Apple Developer Center for people enrolled in the test program, or via an over-the-air update on devices running the beta software. Public betas usually arrive a few days after developer releases, via the Apple Beta Software Program website.

The main addition to macOS is Universal Control, a feature that allows a user to extend their Mac’s workspace to their iPad and other nearby Macs. This is all done automatically and is also supported in the iPadOS 15.4 beta.

AppleInsider, and Apple itself, urge users to avoid installing beta versions on “critical” or primary devices, as there is a very low risk of data loss or other issues. Instead, testers should install beta versions on secondary or non-essential devices and ensure that there are sufficient backups of all important data before performing the update.
