Uni­ver­sal Clip­board

Copy and paste be­tween your Mac, iPhone and iPad

Mac Format - - MAC OS SIERRA -

Rather than cre­ate what Tim Cook once mem­o­rably called ‘toaster fridges’, Ap­ple of­fers distinct de­vices that com­mu­ni­cate ef­fec­tively as a sin­gle, co­her­ent ecosys­tem. Its Con­ti­nu­ity fea­tures en­able you to make and re­ceive phone calls on your Mac, or start an email on one de­vice and con­tinue it on an­other.

With the re­lease of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, Uni­ver­sal Clip­board is added to Con­ti­nu­ity’s ca­pa­bil­i­ties. With all your de­vices signed in to the same Ap­ple ID, you can copy text or an im­age, photo or video on your iPad, for ex­am­ple, then switch to your Mac or iPhone and paste it in a there. What you copy is sent over a peer-to-peer con­nec­tion, so noth­ing’s up­loaded to iCloud.

Uni­ver­sal Clip­board uses the fa­mil­iar Copy and Paste com­mands, so you won’t need to ad­just.
