I am at work. I am looking for a phone number. I find it on the web, and copy it. Then I go to my ipad where I can text, and PASTE IT INTO THE IPAD FIELDS. I don't know why I thought this would work. I have frequently WISHED this would work.

To prove it works, on the desktop I copy the URL, and paste it into the text field on the ipad.

This is wizard work.

Can you sync the clipboard via iCloud?

I had no idea this was a thing that we got with Continuity in Sierra and IOS10.

This is almost as good as being able to text from all my devices.

I'm off to copy/paste with freedom now.

The iCloud Universal Clipboard has been a thing for many years now. One of the simple but incredibly useful features of the Apple ecosystem.

It's a small but wonderful thing.

It's not enough to make you buy all Apple kit but its enough to make you happy that you DID buy all apple kit.
