A number of iOS users have been wondering how to copy and paste images and text between iPhone and Mac. Thankfully with the arrival of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, this task has been easier than ever. This is true, as the two operating systems come with a new Continuity feature called Universal Clipboard that allow users to copy items on one Apple device and paste them on another as long as users have logged into the same iCloud between all your computers and of course enabled the feature. And here’s how you can do it.
Before you start, you should check the list of devices supporting Universal Clipboard:
- iPhone 5 or later
- iPad Pro
- iPad (4th generation)
- iPad Air or later
- iPad mini 2 or later
- iPod touch (6th generation) or later
- MacBook (Early 2015 or later)
- MacBook Pro (2012 or later)
- MacBook Air (2012 or later)
- Mac mini (2012 or later)
- iMac (2012 or later)
- Mac Pro (Late 2013)
Be sure to upgrade your iPhone and Mac to iOS 10 and macOS Sierra. Now, just follow these steps:
Step 1: First and foremost, you will need to log into the same iCloud on all your devices.
Step 2: On your iPhone, head to Settings > iCloud to check your iCloud account.
Step 3: On your Mac, head to System Preferences > iCloud and check if it matches with what you saw in Step 2.
Step 4: Ensure that Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are enabled on the two devices.
Step 5: Now, copy your image or text on one device.
Step 6: Lastly, paste your image or text on your other device.
