This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

Apple said Monday it’s introducing a new feature that will let you move content between your Mac and more than two devices with a single mouse and keyboard.

Called universal control, Apple announced the tool at its Worldwide Developer Conference, a multi-day virtual event that kicked off on Monday. The feature is included in MacOS Monterey, Apple’s latest operating system that will power its Mac computers.

If you need to finish an illustration on your iPad, for example, you’ll be able to move content from your Mac computer if you set the devices next to one another. You can also drag and drop files between Apple’s devices.
