At this year’s WWDC 2021 event we learned a lot about macOS 12, now formally named macOS Monterey. The Mac software update is due out this fall, though a public beta debuted July 1st — so you can get an early look at what’s new in our macOS 12 Monterey review (hands-on).
When macOS Monterey does finally arrive on your Mac, whether as a beta or the full release, Apple has one big theme that dominates its new OS: continuity.
To that end, the company showcased a few key new features coming to macOS with Monterey that should make it easier for Apple product owners to transfer their work across macOS, iOS, and iPadOS devices. This is a big deal because Apple’s Mac business appears to be moving from strength to strength this year, delivering critically acclaimed revisions of its popular laptops and desktops packing the company’s powerful new M1 chips.
