Copy and paste between devices from your Mac
With Universal Clipboard, you can copy text, images, photos and videos on one Apple device and then paste the content on another Apple device. For example, you can copy a recipe from your Mac and paste it into a note on your nearby iPhone. Or copy a file from one Mac to paste in a folder on another Mac.
Copy on a device: Select the content you want to copy, then copy it. For example, on your Mac, press Command-C or choose Edit > Copy.
The copied content is available to paste on your other devices only for a short time.
Paste on a device: Position the pointer where you want to paste the content, then paste it. For example, on your iPad, double-tap, then choose Paste from the options.
Note: To use Universal Clipboard, your Apple devices must meet Continuity system requirements. They must also have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Handoff turned on in System Settings (on your Mac) and in Settings (on your iOS and iPadOS devices). You must be signed in with the same Apple ID on all your devices.
