macOS Monterey is now available with dozens of new features

Apple has released macOS Monterey. You can download it by going to System Preferences > Software Update. The biggest features coming to Macs with Monterey are:

  • A redesigned Safari browser with Tab Groups
  • Shortcuts on the Mac, replacing (eventually) Automator
  • QuickNotes
  • Focus
  • FaceTime with Spatial Audio, Voice Isolation, Wide Spectrum, and Portrait Mode
  • SharePlay to share experiences during FaceTime calls (though it’s not available yet)
  • Shared With You to highlight items others share with you
  • Universal Control, allowing a Mac keyboard and mouse/trackpad to control an iPad (though it’s not available yet)
  • AirPlay to Mac (“Sherlocking” a number of third-party apps).
