Handoff For Mac

admin 12/13/2021

Sometimes the person you want to share something with is yourself, as in when you start something on one device (be it a Mac, an iPhone, an iPad, or even an Apple Watch) and want to resume on another device. The Handoff feature enables you to do just that, as long as every device is on iCloud, signed in with an identical Apple ID, and on the same Wi-Fi network.

Handoff works across numerous apps — Apple’s own Calendars, Contacts, Keynote, Maps, Mail, Messages, Notes, Numbers, Pages, Reminders, and Safari apps — as well as some third-party apps.

Handoff For Mac

Enable Handoff Mac

On your Mac, start by making sure that the feature is enabled. Go to System Preferences → General and make sure the Allow Handoff between this Mac and your iCloud devices box is selected.

Then when you come to the Mac on which you’re resuming work, note the icon at the left end of the dock (assuming that the dock is in its default place). Click that icon and you’re good to go.

And if you started work on the Mac and now want to resume on an iOS device, you’ll see the Handoff icon on the Lock screen of that device. Swipe up or double-click the Home button to get going, and from the multitasking screen swipe right until you see the Handoff icon. On the bottom of the iOS device, tap the Handoff strip that appears with a message informing you which app and computer you were previously working on, such as Notes from Edward’s MacBook Air.

Handoff is a major element of Apple's 'integration' theme, and of the new Continuity feature set for iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, which also includes cross-compatible AirDrop, iPhone call and SMS handling on the iPad and Mac, and the new, much easier to connect, tethering service. Rather than trying to fit one interface across a range of different devices, or making the cloud the center of the universe, Apple is promising to transparently, seamlessly move whatever activity you're doing to whatever device you want to continue doing it with. It's a person-centric choice and a bold one, but if Apple delivers, it could forever change the way we use our iPhones, iPads, and Macs.
