Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming macOS Monterey 12.2 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new software coming three weeks after the first beta and a month after the release of macOS Monterey 12.1.

Registered developers can download the beta through the Apple Developer Center and after the appropriate profile is installed, betas will be available through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences. Apple has also released a macOS 11.6.3 release candidate version for Big Sur users.

We don't yet know what's included in macOS Monterey 12.2, and no new features were found in the first beta. We'll update this article should anything new come up in the second beta.

As of now, there's one major feature that Apple has yet to add to macOS Monterey -- Universal Control. Universal Control is designed to allow a single mouse and trackpad to be used with multiple Macs and iPads, and Apple has said it will be launching this spring.

Surprise
I need to get off the beta carousel again! I was off but then was having some memory issues so I got the last beta hoping it would help those. Instead it introduced some new ones for me - like Safari periodically not working until I toggle wifi on/off.

Let’s hope the AirPods bug that I only experience on my Mac is fixed.

No OTA yet on my M1 air. Also hoping for some memory leak fixes...

EDIT: Now available
