See Handoff and Phone Calls work their magic in OS X Yosemite

With so many new features in OS X Yosemite, we couldn’t fit them all into one video. Today we take a look at Handoff and Phone Calls, two of the hottest additions to Apple’s operating system. These two powerful features will link your Mac and your iPhone like never before.

    How was he able to to do that ?

    • Mike

      Using bluetooth, but I can’t seem to get it to work.

      • Michel

        would it also work for an iPhone with IOS 7 ?

      • iCensur

        Of course not

    Wait a second.. I don’t think receive and make calls works in the first beta.. does it?

    • Adrayven

      Some have it working, but formally it’s not in a ready working state..

      • http://greekiphone.gr piratx

        Is there a way to make it work? Like clean install of the beta on both devices?

  • Nishank Joshi

    What technology does it use for hand diff and calls ? Wifi or bluetooth ?

    I certainly will use phone on the Mac. Excellent new functionality.

    Yeah, I’ve got an iPhone 5s and a 2012 Mac Mini and 2013 Macbook Air, and I can’t get Continuity features to work on either one – a big disappointment in the first beta for me, as these are some incredible features!

    Calls thru iPhone are working for me, but not Handoff.
    MBA with Yosemite and iPhone 5s with iOS 8 are not connecting through bluetooth.

  • Ruben Rodrigues

    I have a MBP late 2011… I’m seeing people saying it will only work on BT 4.0. Why the hell would i care about it if it works via Wi-Fi?

  • Oscar Alaniz

    I guess it uses Bluetooth 4.0. I can’t get it to work on neither my iMac nor MacBook Air. Betas…

    When will apple produce a Skype type communication product to answer and make calls? Even better, a pier to pier SECURE communication app. Like iTunes, that can be downloaded for both Mac/PC…an Apple Skype-like pier to pier app would be as hot as iTunes…and maybe hotter just for the security alone. Skype/Microsoft is currently recording archiving all communication through skype.
