I had my Eureka! moment when my wife called me and I was away from my iPhone, using my iPad. The call came through to my iPad and I was able to answer it. Then, I was able to make ordinary calls with iPad and send SMS messages.
It’s something that doesn’t seem like it’s such a big deal, but actually it makes a lot of sense. This kind of effortless integration is one of the reasons why I love using Apple’s devices. For Handoff to work I had to do absolutely nothing, (except update to iOS8). Apple guessed I would like this to be enabled by default, and they were right.
Moreover, now I’m able to send SMS from my iPad. Really good thing. Can’t wait Yosemite so that I will be able to enjoy this kind of comfort from my Macbook Pro.
