Genius hidden Apple feature makes connecting all your devices so much easier

IF YOU are someone who loves working across all of your iOS devices, then this genius hack could help make the process more seamless.

In 2014, Apple introduced iOS 8 for its devices, with the system update boasting a feature called "Handoff."

'Handoff' is a clever tool that allows users to sync their Apple devices, including iPhone, iPad, iMac, MacBook, iPod touch, and Apple Watch.  

With 'Handoff,' you can transfer work or in-progress activities from one device to another nearby device and pick up where you left off.

How to set-up 'Handoff'

For starters, you can only use 'Handoff' if your devices meet the Continuity system requirements.

Handoff also only works when your devices are near each other and are signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID.

Furthermore, the devices must have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi turned on.

Once all of those steps are completed, you can turn on 'Handoff.'

On a Mac: Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click General.

Select “Allow Handoff between this Mac and your iCloud devices.”

On an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch: Go to Settings > General > AirPlay & Handoff, then turn on Handoff.

If you're on an Apple Watch: You have to go to the Apple Watch app on your iPhone, click General, and turn on Enable Handoff.

How to use 'Handoff'

Now that you have set up 'Handoff,' here's how to use it.

First, you must open an app that works with 'Handoff,' such as Mail, Maps, Safari, Reminders, Calendar, Contacts, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, and a number of third-party apps.

Next, use the app to start a task (i.e. writing an email or document).

Then when you're ready to switch over to another device, you can click on the app's 'Handoff' icon in the Dock.

The work should automatically transfer over to your other device.
