When you’re working, you don’t really need multiple devices screaming at you
We love Continuity and the manner in which Apple is thoughtfully increasing integration between devices, but we wish the system would be a bit more intelligent. If you’re busy working on your Mac and a message comes in, you might welcome a notification on your screen. Chances are you won’t be thrilled by all of your nearby iPads and iPhones blaring out the same notification over the next few seconds. We’d like devices to be more aware of their proximity to each other, intelligently feeding notifications and actionable alerts to the device you’re working with, not all of them. (Again, this could be optional should you thrive on cacophony.)
If all your devices are in one place, there’s no need for all of them to fire notifications at your eyes and ears.
