dis­tracted. So there’s noth­ing worse than work­ing on some­thing on your iPhone, then hav­ing to break your flow by email­ing it to your Mac so you can con­tinue there. It’s fid­dly, it takes time and, ul­ti­mately, it can make you lose your fo­cus.

Luck­ily, Ap­ple has cre­ated a num­ber of meth­ods that let you quickly and eas­ily move tasks be­tween your Mac and iOS de­vices. Whether you want to off­load a task to your Mac us­ing Hand­off or copy some im­por­tant text to your iPhone with Uni­ver­sal Clip­board, th­ese great tools en­able your de­vices to work seam­lessly to­gether, aptly demon­strat­ing the value of Ap­ple’s in­te­grated ecosys­tem.

Here, we’ll show you how to master th­ese tools, as well as a third-party al­ter­na­tive. To get started, make sure both your Mac and iOS de­vices are signed in to the same iCloud ac­count, are close to each other, and have Blue­tooth and Wi-Fi turned on.
