The best demo at WWDC 2021

    The Verge

    The best demo at Apple's WWDC 2021 was Universal Control, a feature that lets you use your Mac's keyboard on an iPad and even a second Mac. It's a very clever little feature, but it is built on years of small iPad improvements.

Dudes, MICROSOFT GARAGE MOUSE WITHOUT BORDERS has existed for years, it's developed by Microsoft and it's free. It works flawlessly to share one mouse and keyboard across up to 4 devices. The same principle, move the mouse to the edge of the screen and it goes to the next machine. Also shared clipboard and copy/pasting files up to 100MB. Setup is really easy, install on machines, select on one NO and on other Yes and input the machine name and key. And easy peasy, use it.

So Apple copied Synergy, Logitech Flow and dozens of similar apps that have existed for years, baked it into the OS and Verge reviewers are calling it "innovative" again, huh? I mean, Apple's implementation seems to be really nice, seamless and have it built-in in the OS probably makes it easier to use but come on... Innovative? Do we really need to get into the Apple hype?

Although some of these features been around for a while now, for instance, sidecar was released in 2020 whereas on Windows, back in 2017, and drag and drop features combined with Logitech MX series, however, I will say the seamless drag and drop is very slick though along with the other functions combined. It's always so much better having native support!

This is why you can't trust Verge reviewers. It is his JOB to a least be aware that this functionality existed FOR YEARS in other platforms (including the drag and drop files). Yet he is baffled by it and he is attributing it to Apple's ecosystem integration. Don't get me wrong. I think it's great that Apple implemented this feature. I'm not here making the "it's a copy" argument. I don't care who made it first. Also, because it is integrated into their OSes I'm sure it will be funcional and simple to use but c'mon....

Wonderful video. What you perhaps forgot to notice is the same M1 chip in new Ipad. Universal Control may not be because of the chip uniformity, but inclusion of M1 on iPad surely opens the doors for such new things in the future! It will be interesting to watch Apple m’s next move.

I have a MacBook Pro and an iPad Pro with trackpad and sometimes I'm starting to get confused about which gestures I can use on what device — I also have the instinct to touch my Mac's screen every now and then. I can see why Apple wants to keep iPadOS and macOS separated, but the closer they get, the more I think they need to create a consistent experience for basic functionalities to avoid moments of dissonance.

I move image from ipad to macbook photoshop, so where is this image stored? In the ipod AND macbook pro.. why duplicate all this files? Let's say you want to edit image, should you edit on macbook or go back to ipad? If you edit on macbook then image is not same as on tablet.. you just mess up everything. But it's cool to move files from one location to another, but not to work in multiple device.

This is amazing. I wish this feature had been out a few months ago when I was deciding between getting another magic keyboard and trackpad for my iPad; since there was no easy way to switch between my iMac and iPad to be able to use them with both quickly while both were on my desk; and the magic keyboard. I went with the $350 magic keyboard. If this feature had been out, my $100 apple folio case for my ipad would have been all i needed to prop up the iPad (by the way, thanks for these low prices Apple lol) next to my iMac and use existing keyboard and trackpad to control both the mac and ipad. I agree this was the most compelling demo/feature announced yesterday! And thanks to MKBHD for recommending this video since I hadn't seen it posted before he mentioned it in his video today.

This was absolutely the show-stopper of the whole event. But the whole event was very much how all the nifty features are now on all the devices. Is the iPad getting closer to the Mac? Yes, and to the iPhone and Watch! It's now all one very close ecosystem.  As they said in Tidbits, "It may be a walled garden, but it's awfully pleasant inside."
