Apple Seeds macOS Monterey 12.2 Release Candidate to Developers [Update: Public Beta Available]
Apple today seeded the release candidate version of an upcoming macOS Monterey 12.2 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new software coming one week the second beta and more than 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.

Apple, can you please stop shipping garbage beta software? Can you please stop announcing future software features that put pressure on you to release those instead of a stable OS? I'm pretty sure the language that I really want to use to describe this is against the rules here at MacRumors but I can't fully describe anyway how disappointed I am with this embarrassing, miserable approach to software. Apple had time to add a bunch of idiotic notifications that distract people. Then they spent a bunch of time adding controls for the idiotic notifications so we can be distracted less. How about starting with a solid OS and then playing games with new features that are terrible for users. Jesus this is awful. For the first time in my life my PC is way more reliable than a Mac. I can't connect my Mac to one external peripheral, the most basic one used with a notebook computer, without constant crashes. The blue screen of death has nothing on this.
