Apple released macOS Monterey, bringing privacy enhancements, keyboard sharing, and more

macOS Monterey

The next version of the Mac operating system unveiled at WWDC will be called macOS Monterey, bringing privacy enhancements, keyboard sharing and other features. Apple introduced the successor of macOS Big Sur in its annual WWDC keynote event. The system will soon be available to developers in the form of a beta version and will become a pre-installed version for Mac computers later this year. Its main update focuses on adding new features to Messages and improving support for Apple Silicon Mac. It also keeps the Mac in sync with the key features of the new iOS 15. For example, it includes SharePlay. When making FaceTime calls with friends and colleagues, users can share movies, music and other content. Because it can share this information with people the user wants to work with, Apple has also enhanced macOS’s privacy capabilities. Just like iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, Apple Mail will prevent email senders from detecting when users have read their emails. Users who currently pay for iCloud services will be automatically upgraded to iCloud+, which adds new privacy features to the Mac, including virtual private network services to hide their identities. Continuity: Support sharing a small amount of data between Apple devices. You can use a mouse and keyboard between Mac and iPad. In other words, if you put the iPad next to the Mac, your Mac cursor and keyboard will move between the Mac and iPad. This is a very powerful and very cool feature. If you place the iPad next to the Mac, the mouse pointer can move across the screens of the two devices. You can drag and drop files between Mac and iPad, and it can be “used on more than two devices.”

So Apple is great working with creating it's ecosystem, I kind of loved how seem-less was the file transfer along the devices with the universal connect...
