During this year’s WWDC, Apple showed off a new feature that will be available this Fall when both operating systems become available to the general public.
The feature is called Continuity, and it’ll allow someone to take a photo or scan a document from your iPhone and insert it into a compatible document or photo app on the Mac.
Many apps on Mac work with Continuity Camera including Pages, Keynote, Numbers, Notes, Bear, TextEdit and many more. To get started, open a document in an app that supports the feature.
Here’s how it works:
- Open a document in a compatible Mac app.
- Right Click inside the document and select “Insert from iPhone”.
- Choose between “Take Photo or Scan Document”.
- When taking a photo, you’ll have the option to keep it, or retake it.
* When scanning a document, you’ll have the option to scan additional pages.
Note to Apple:
