Get started with Handoff in OS X 10.10 Yosemite

Apple Byte Crunch

Using an iOS device and a Mac, you can now share content between the two easier than ever.

Handoff is one of the headlining features of both iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Part of a broader approach to bring Continuity to Apple devices, Handoff allows you do things like start composing an email on your iOS device, switch to your Mac, and continue composing it with a couple of clicks.

No more saving a message to drafts and waiting for it to sync over to your Mac. The same type of functionality carries over from Maps, Safari, Messages, Contacts, Calendar and Reminders.

After you upgrade to Yosemite, Handoff should be enabled by default. But it’s a good idea to confirm.
