At WWDC this year, Apple announced a brand new feature for iOS devices and Macs called Continuity. The idea was to streamline the process between switching devices and to make iOS and Mac OS work more closely together.

It’s a software feature that lets you use your iPhone, iPad, and Mac interchangeably, for almost any task. Answer an incoming phone call on your iPhone using your iPad or Mac, load the same web page you have open in Safari on your Mac on your iPhone, or load the spreadsheet you’ve been editing on your iPad on the Mac, all without having to sift through dozens icons and other files.

The feature doesn’t always work quite like we expected, but it’s definitely useful in many situations. It also causes some problems, like interfering with location-based applications which also appear in the lower left corner of the lock screen. And cross-platform AirDrop support seems to only work when it feels like it.

Aside from some minor hiccups, though, Continuity seems to be some very simple – yet very powerful – software that has already changed the way I use my Apple devices. Check out how Continuity in iOS 8 and Yosemite is in action in the video below!
