If I copy some text in OSx then I couldn't paste in my iOS device.

I have enabled hand off in both iOS and Mac

I have logged in using the same apple ID

I have turned Wifi and blue tooth on in both the devices

Both the devices are connected to same wifi.

Mac: Mac book pro 16 inch 2021 , Ventura 13.5.1

iOS: iPhone 13 pro , iOS 16.6

    How do you copy what exactly from a Mac to an iOS device? If there is something on the iPhone/iPad that can work with the file (EG photos.app for pics, Music.app for music, etc...) then Handoff should work fine. But the iPhone is not a thumb drive. So if you are just trying to store an assortment of files so they can be easily transported to another device then the iPhone/iPad is not a good choice. Sep 4, 2023 at 21:46
