Your iPhone, Mac, and any other iOS or Apple device you own can be seamlessly used together. If you’re wondering how to sync all your devices, we’re here to help. There are many different ways to “sync” your Apple devices, and here are the most useful and important options.
Sync Phone Calls
You can place and answer calls from your iPhone using your Mac or iPad. If your iPhone is across the room or in your pocket, you don’t even have to reach for it. Simply make sure your devices are logged into the same iCloud account and connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
If you ever want all your music across all your devices, you can accomplish this with iCloud. Make sure you’re signed into Apple Music with the same Apple ID and enable iCloud Music Library. You’ll never have to manually sync any playlists, songs, or albums again!
You can seamlessly use Mail, Safari, Maps, Calendar, Reminders, and more across your Apple devices with Handoff. For example, you can start an email on your iPhone then finish it on your Mac. You could be reading this blog on your Mac then pick up your iPhone and continue reading. Make sure Bluetooth is enabled, then do the following:
- Mac – System Preferences > General > Allow Handoff between this Mac and iCloud devices.”
- iOS devices – Settings > General > Handoff > turn on Handoff.
There are many other built-in and third-party apps also work with Handoff, so do some experimenting!
When you accomplish the above three steps, your devices are going to be more compatible than ever. Thankfully Apple makes these things easy to accomplish!
