Start A Message On Your iPhone (or iPad) and Finish It On Your Mac.

Have you ever started to answer an email on your iPhone and decided that your reply is getting complicated and taking WAY to long to type? It happens to me frequently. Of course, I don’t thumb type like a lot of kids do, I actually touch type about 100 wpm so it is probably easy to understand why I get frustrated trying to respond on my iPhone.

In the latest version of the iOS you have the ability to start responding to an email on your phone (or your iPad) and finishing the response on your Mac. The steps are easy.

  • Start the message.
  • When you are ready to save the message as a draft, tap the Cancel button in the upper left corner of the screen.
  • text2A new screen appears. Tap Save Draft at the bottom of the screen.

  • When you are ready to complete the message on your Mac look at the Mail icon in your dock (assuming you have it there) and you will see that tiny iphone image has appeared on the Mail icon. Tap the Mail icon and your saved draft opens automatically for you. Finish it up and send it off. If you don’t have the Mail icon in your dock, open Mail and choose Drafts.

Personally, I love this feature.
