MASTER YOUR MAC

Snap Your iPhone on Your Mac

Continuity Camera puts your iPhone or iPad camera to work.

With Continuity Camera, a feature built into recent versions of macOS, you can use your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to snap a pic or scan a document and it’ll appear instantly on your Mac—no saving, syncing, or dragging and dropping required.

If you’re working on a report in Pages, for example, and need to add a photo of a prototype on your desk, just Control-click in the document and choose Take Photo under the name of your iOS device. When the Camera app launches on your device, snap your pic, confirm that it looks good, and it’ll automatically appear in your document.

You can also use your iPhone or iPad to scan documents—this option lets you crop the scan on the fly and capture multiple pages, and it saves the image as a scalable PDF. Control-click in a document on your Mac and choose Scan Documents. Tap the shutter button on your iPhone or iPad, adjust the capture borders, and tap Keep Scan. Then scan the next page, or tap Save if you’re done. Everything will get inserted into your document.

You can use Continuity Camera in native apps like Mail, Messages, Notes, TextEdit, and Finder, as well as in the many great apps below.
