This time atmacOSIn addition to confirming that the name of the next version will adopt the name of the California coastal town “Monterey”, it also adds many functions linked to iOS and iPadOS, and adds a cross-device operation mode called “Universal Control”. It also highlights the announcement inSafariThe update on the browser also announced that the Safari plug-in can be used with the mobile version of Safari.
Enhance collaboration between Mac and iPad
macOS Monterey has added many of the updated features in iOS 15 and iPad OS 15, such as FaceTime, Space Audio, Quick Memo, SharePlay, etc. This larger update allows iPads close to Mac models to be available through “Universal Control” Function linkage, including the display function on the iPad can be operated through the Mac trackpad and keyboard, and even the mouse cursor of the iMac can be dragged, and after passing through the MacBook Pro, click on the photo on the iPad, and then drag the photo in the reverse direction Store and use on iMac.
If not unexpected, this function is expected to be realized through iCloud linkage, but I’m not sure whether it will also add iPhone linkage operation, or at most it can only support iPad that can also be operated by mouse and keyboard?
The Mac model can be used as an AirPlay display
In macOS Monterey, another special update is that the content can be played on the Mac model through the AirPlay function, and the sound can be played through the built-in loudspeaker of the Mac model.At the same time, Apple also changed the iOSSiriThe shortcut function is brought to the Mac to make it easier for users to handle specific setting shortcut functions through Siri.
Safari browser is more streamlined
As for the new version of the Safari browser, Apple has further adjusted its operating interface to make the overall operation more intuitive. At the same time, it also made the page viewable range larger and less distracting by simplifying the design, and added plug-ins that started last year. The design is applied to the mobile version of Safari, and even greater adjustments have been made to the Safari browser on the iPhone. The address bar is moved to the bottom edge of the screen, which is convenient for users to directly tap with their thumbs or display all page contents through swipe gesture .
Compared with the macOS Big Sur launched last year, this update is obviously smaller, but it also adds more designs that can be linked to devices such as iPads to enhance Apple’s cross-device multi-tasking experience.
