    I just downloaded and installed the new IOS 8.1 update with no issues. Apple Pay was setup successfully with my bank and minor bugs that was affecting my phone has disappeared. In fact my phone seems to be running smoother.

    This past Friday Apple's newest OS (Yosemite) was installed on my machine with no issues other than Notifications not working but I had help from the OS portion of the forum to troubleshoot. Issue resolved!

    Today I setup the functionality of making and receiving phones calls on my MacBook and I admit that addition is cool. To do this you will need the new OS and of course your iPhone.

    The Apple ecosystem consist of functional pieces of hardware and software that work together as a whole. Apple is to be commended for bringing all of this together that make our experiences in the mobile and computing domain a good experience!:apple:

    Yes, but have you been able to activate handoff and sms relay between iOS 8.1 and Yosemite? I've been working on those all day and they're the last remaining features before I'm satisfied with the new OSes...

    Don't say that here. Some will get upset that you're one of the many millions of happy customers.
    Here you will find lots of ocd folks crying and complaining over the smallest things and how Apple has let them down :D

    It's actually good to have a suite of products that have the potential to play nice with one another. The Apple ecosystem provides that functionality...nothing wrong with that!

    I know. This thinking seems to permeate these forums. Quite sad really!

    Sorry, I misunderstood your post! I thought you meant the new feature "Continuity" but realize you meant the SMS handoff.

    I got mine to work. If you're still having an issue, see link below:

    Peace!

    Too bad Continuity won't work until I upgrade to a newer Mac! If you're running the new OS on an older machine without issues I would think it would work. Oh well...probably Apple's way of making you spend money for upgraded hardware.

    Glad it's working for you though!:apple:

    I have an honest question...

    Why do you swear in every post you make? Every post I see from you has at least one word censored.

    I agree. Apple had some rare hiccups with iOS 8.0-8.02 but now with Yosemite and 8.1, everything seems to be back in order, integration across Mac/iPhone/iPad tighter than ever, and as you said "just works".

    good to see posts like this once in a while instead of the usually whinning "my battery only lasts 9 hours" boo frigin hoo


    I also have no issues with my iphone 6 on 8, 8.02 and 8.1, and I love that I can take calls and reply to normal SMS's on my MBP now

    In my opinion you come off as immature.

    Everything is working for me too. I've not tested making calls from my iPad / Mac yet (and likely won't as I despise talking on the phone). Got the SMS stuff working. That was my big one. The Continuity stuff is interesting, but not huge for me. And this morning I was able to get my MacBook online with the personal hotspot thing. That worked great. Didn't even need to pull my phone from my pocket. And I love being able to AirDrop to my Mac finally.

    I did have some issues getting my iPad going yesterday, but once I signed out of iCloud and back in, all three devices work great now. As the OP said, "Everything just works" and it's glorious. :)

    Well it certainly SHOULD all be working, after all you're paying more than any other consumer for the same functionality.
    I do find it hysterical that iPeople are touting being able to rx calls on their mac after reading the LED thread. Why in the world would you ever need this with your phone grafted to your body?

    You must be new around here.;)

    ----------

    To be able to work in an ecosystem where the same functionality can be redundant on multiple platforms is useful for some.

    Suppose you're in a situation where your phone is either charging or perhaps it could be in another room?...having the ability to continue your workflow while on your desktop, laptop or iPaid is a good thing.

    Just curious...you have any Apple products?

    Sorry arftech, I agree. It's only funny after reading the LED thread. Iphone users NEVER are away from their phones...
