Apple today released macOS Monterey 12.1 RC version, and fixes a number of serious problems that exist in macOS Monterey.
According to Apple’s release notes, macOS Monterey 12.1 fixes the issue that caused the touchpad to intermittently fail when tapped.
Earlier this month, many users said that tapping on the touchpad often resulted in invalid clicks.
On the 2021 MacBook Pro, watching HDR content on YouTube will cause the machine to crash. macOS 12.1 also fixes this problem.
2021 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, there was a problem that caused the machine to fail to charge through MagSafe after shutting down and closing the lid.
macOS Monterey 12.1 also fixes this problem.
The macOS Monterey 12.1 also solves an issue that may cause the desktop and screen saver to appear blank after selecting a photo from the photo library.
It also fixes an issue that may cause the external monitor to fail to charge some MacBook Pro and MacBook Air computers when connected to Thunderbolt or USB-C.
If there are no major issues, the RC version will be pushed as the official version. It can be confirmed that iPadOS 15.2 and macOS Monterey 12.1 RC version still do not support the highly anticipated universal control function.
The release notes for macOS Monterey 12.1 and iPadOS 15.2 did not mention general control. In the various beta and RC versions of macOS Monterey and iPadOS 15 stage, the general control has not been officially launched.
Universal control uses a set of keyboard, mouse or trackpad, which can be seamlessly controlled across Mac and iPad, even with multiple Macs or iPads. The cursor on the Mac can be moved directly to the iPad, the text you type on the Mac can also appear on the iPad, and even the content can be dragged and dropped back and forth between the two Macs.
On Apple’s official website, Apple still stated that “Universal Control will be launched later this fall”, but it is already winter, and it seems unlikely that it will be launched this year.
