Apple's coolest new iPad feature just got delayed – but is it doomed?

Back in June, Twitter was abuzz with excitement over Apple's various WWDC announcements, which included an awesome crossover feature for iPadOS and MacOS. But Universal Control has so far failed to show up in any software updates or betas, and now Apple has officially announced that the coolest feature of 2021 won't be appearing until 2022.

Apple has updated its web pages for both macOS Monterey and iOS 15, announcing that Universal Control, which allows users to use a single MacBook trackpad and mouse to control several more devices, won't be appearing until "this Spring".
