Apple Seeds First Beta of macOS Monterey 12.2 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming macOS Monterey 12.2 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new software coming shortly after the release of macOS Monterey 12.1.

macOS Monterey on MBP Feature
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.

We don't yet know what's included in macOS Monterey 12.2, but Apple has yet to implement a major feature -- 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.

We'll update this article when we find out what's new in macOS Monterey 12.2. Apple has also seeded a macOS Big Sur 11.6.3 beta for those who are still running Big Sur.

Stop worrying about Universal Control! Let's focus on bugs and stability.

As an engineer, there's no such thing.
That’s nice. But end users don’t need to be engineers to use the devices. If they don’t see things, that’s just fine. And it doesn’t mean they aren’t serious users.

Safari is unusable on 12.1, I havent tried on 12.2 but its been unusable since Monterey was released. the CPU sits over 100% and the memory consumption grows and grows until the computer comes to a grinding halt. Ive switched to using the technology preview which doesnt have this issue, so maybe if they upgrade safari the issue will be gone?
I've not experienced this whatsoever.

Im not personally seeing any bugs with 12.1 on my M1 MBP. Maybe you could post a massive list of all the bugs you are seeing? Many thanks
