Features and Changes[edit | edit source]

Universal Control[edit | edit source]

  • Now it will be activated by default when finishing installation.

System Preferences[edit | edit source]

  • In the display options, advanced. . . has been replaced with "Add Display", which removed the 1st option that enables Universal Control and instead a new Mirror or extend to option will be implemented instead, with clicking or tapping the other remaining device you have to display.
  • Focus Preferences from the Do Not Disturb preferences have been moved from the System Preferences > Notifications with being renamed to "Notifications & Focus".

Safari[edit | edit source]

  • Live text for Safari is now out in Intel system devices.
  • Now the old style tabs are divided from the top of the toolbar, instead from the bottom of the toolbar.

Shortcuts[edit | edit source]

  • Support for double desktop devices has been implemented.
  • The ability to "Return to Home Screen".
