There are new RC versions for all Apple operating systems ready for download now.
New betas and macOS Monterey available in RC Developer Edition
Developers can only download the ‘final’ file (these are release candidates, so) can New releases before next week) iOS 15.1 (SharePlay, as well as Lossless and Dolby Atmos for HomePods), macOS 12 Monterey (new MacBook Pro computers will be delivered to early customers on Tuesday, October 26), tvOS 15.1 and watchOS 8.1.
We can start with the latest OS, because we don’t even know what’s new, because Apple hasn’t revealed anything. tvOS 15.1 introduces something new, which is of course SharePlay. You will be able to use FaceTime while listening to music and watching movies or TV.
macOS Monterey supports the following Macs and adds Universal Control:
- MacBook: 2015 onwards

In addition to sharing text, photos, mouse, and screen sharing with your iPad, macOS 12 Monterey turns your iMac into an AirPlay device. Safari is up to date and FaceTime has “spatial audio”. M1 devices get portrait mode.
