macOS Monterey 12.2 beta brings improved scrolling in Safari with ProMotion MacBook Pro

Apple today released the first beta version of macOS Monterey 12.2 to developers. Although the release notes for the update indicated that there were no changes, we are slowly discovering some notable new features. In addition to a revamped Music application, the update also appears to bring much-needed improvements to ProMotion support for the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models…

The new MacBook Pros feature Super Retina XDR displays with support for refresh rates up to 120Hz. However, when the machines were released, many users noticed that Mac apps like Safari did not support 120Hz scrolling. Although Apple released a new version of the Safari Technology Preview with alleged support for 120Hz scrolling, the issue was not fully resolved.

However, with the current release of macOS Monterey 12.2, it appears that Apple has finally addressed this issue. As first noted by Luming Yin on Twitter, the release includes smoother scrolling in Safari on the latest MacBook Pro with ProMotion.

Several reports on Reddit and social media indicate that scrolling in Safari is indeed smoother with today’s beta. 9to5Mac also tested this and confirmed that scrolling finally seems to take advantage of the 120Hz ProMotion display in the new MacBook Pros.

With macOS Monterey 12.2 in beta testing with developers, we expect a public beta sometime in the coming weeks and a global release sometime in the new year.
