Howdy Testers! We are back again with yet another round of incredible product updates! At LambdaTest, we strive to support the latest releases to ensure your website and web apps work seamlessly across all the real browsers and operating systems. However, this week is extra special because we have something special for you.
As you might be aware, Apple has recently seeded the eighth developer beta of macOS Monterey. macOS Monterey comes with several notable features that enhance the Mac experience, the major ones are: redesigned Safari, shortcuts app, new Focus mode, Quick Notes, AirPlay to Mac, Universal Control to work seamlessly across different Apple devices, and many more. However, the stable version of macOS Monterey will be available for the general public in the fall.
To keep you prepared for the upcoming release, we have added the macOS Monterey to our cross browser testing cloud, using which you can perform real-time testing of your websites and web apps. We have also added the latest Safari 15 browser – the native browser version for macOS Monterey.
You’ll also find some complementary additions to optimize your workflow.
Note: macOS Monterey is in the Beta phase right now. We will update it to a stable version as soon as the stable release gets launched by Apple.
Let’s discover more about this update!
