Mac Format - - APPLE SKILLS -

1 Turn on Hand­off

Open Sys­tem Pref­er­ences and click the Gen­eral icon. In this pane, turn on ‘Al­low Hand­off be­tween this Mac and your iCloud de­vices’. On iOS, go to Set­tings > Gen­eral > Hand­off and turn on the fea­ture us­ing the switch on this page.

2 Switch be­tween de­vices

When car­ry­ing out a task on iOS in an app that sup­ports Hand­off, click the icon to the left of Fin­der in your Mac’s Dock to con­tinue the task there. To pass the other way, open iOS’s app switcher and tap the ban­ner at the bot­tom.

3 Use AirDrop in­stead

To send one or more files to an­other de­vice, use AirDrop. In Fin­der on your Mac, choose Go > AirDrop and drag the file onto the icon for the re­ceiv­ing de­vice. On iOS, open the Share sheet. In the top row, tap the icon of the de­vice to send to.
