I am trying to copy a link from Messages on my iPhone (running iOS 11) to my Mac (macOS High Sierra GM).

I am following the directions located at:


I have verified that I am signed in to my own iCloud account on both my iPhone and my Mac.

I have verified that I have Bluetooth turned on, and that both devices are nearby and connected.

I have verified that both are connecting to the same network via WiFi.

I have verified that Handoff is turned on. On my Mac, I have "Allow Handoff between this Mac and your iCloud devices" checked. On my iPhone, I have the slider for Settings > General > Handoff switched to on.

When I go into iPhone Messages and hold my finger down on the link, and the menu comes up and I select Copy... and I wait... and wait... nothing happens on my Mac. There is no iPhone icon or any change to my Mac's clipboard.

What's going on?
This one time, at Boot Camp, I stuck a flute up my PC.
