Thanks to Apple’s ecosystem, you can start a task on your phone and then switch to another device, such as a tablet, and continue working from exactly where you left off. You may utilize a feature called Continuity, which links all your Apple devices, to do everything from surfing the web to making an online purchase to sketching an illustration to texting your friends.
A global clipboard is a great tool used by Continuity. You can now copy an image, video, or link from your iPhone and paste it directly onto your iPad or Macbook thanks to the universal clipboard.
If you’ve used this resource before, you know how helpful it can be. However, there is a secret motion that can be learned that will make using the global clipboard a breeze.
