Apple has a not very well known feature called Continuity, which will connect all of your Apple devices. You can copy a picture from your iPad and easily paste it into your iPhone or Mac. There are only 3 steps to make sure your Apple products are compatible with this feature. You can check all of these items in Settings.
You must be logged into the same iCloud account on each device.
You must all be in the same WiFi network.
Bluetooth and Handoff must be enabled.
One way Continuity is useful is for copying and pasting easily between your iPhone and iPad or your Mac. The quickest way to do it is with pinch gestures. To copy, pinch in with three fingers. To paste, pinch out with three fingers. The best way to use this feature is with pictures and videos in the Photos app. Let’s say you want to copy and paste a photo from your iPhone to your iPad. All you need to do is open the Photos app on your iPhone, find the photo you want to migrate and then pinch in with three fingers to copy it to your clipboard. To then move the photo over to your other device, open the iPad, go into an app like Notes or Messages and pinch out with three fingers to paste the photo.

Tip of the month
Windows File History
Backing up is a necessity if you use a computer. Your method of backup doesn’t have to be tedious, or expensive or time consuming. If you use nothing else, try Windows File History with an external hard drive or flash drive. Both are inexpensive purchases. Basically once you turn File History on – Control Panel – System and Security – File History- you let the program know which drive you want your files to be backed up to. Then when you have saved a file with changes that you don’t want, you can right click on the file and choose Previous Version. You may have multiple files to choose from. Click on it and choose the Restore button and you will have your old file back.
