One of the benefits of a pure Apple ecosystem is that devices work together, and Apple's Continuity Camera is a prime example. With an iPhone or iPad, you can quickly transfer pictures to documents on a Mac.
As with everything else, there are a few things you need before you can use the Continuity Camera. You need a Mac and an iPhone or iPad and both need to have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled. You must also be signed in to the same iCloud account. In addition, two-factor authentication must be enabled for this account. It also requires a minimum software level: macOS Mojave on the Mac and iOS 1
