The new beta of macOS 12.3 relocates and makes the universal control options clearer

macOS Monterey

Today have been released new betas for different Apple operating systems. On the one hand iOS 15.4 but what interests us most in this space is the new beta of macOS 12.3. The so famous version where we can enjoy the Universal Control functionality. A function that in this new version of the beta is relocated and more easily accessible. We can find it right now in the form of a switch in system preferences.

When the betas of macOS 15.3 began to be released, it was being seen how the Universal Control function would monopolize all the eyes and tests by users. A very good functionality that with the launch of the latest beta has obtained one more update. The current shape and placement of this new feature has been redefined. They have been specifically set within System Preferences.

Although the initial idea was that it was a tool that did not need a special configuration process, the reality is that sometimes it would need those adjustments. Especially when it comes to adjusting it to obtain the functions as required. In earlier beta versions of macOS Monterey 12.3, these controls they were hidden in the Advanced option in the Displays pane of the System Preferences app.

However, with today's release of macOS Monterey 12.3 beta 3, Universal Control now has a dedicated switch in the main interface of the Screens portion of System Preferences. This makes the options more accessible, especially for users who might not think to dive into the Advanced menu to adjust Universal Control.

Clicking that Universal Control switch in System Preferences brings up the options that we want to adjust:

  1. Allow cursor and keyboard move between any nearby Mac or iPad
  2. Allow the cursor connect to a nearby Mac or iPad by reaching to the edge of the screen.
  3. return to automatically connect to any nearby Mac or iPad
