    Anyone else have this happen to them? On only one device say your iPhone and Safari is poping up on the home screen but iPad and Mac are both sleeping ?

    Happens quite often to me, web page won't open but if I double tap the home button to bring up multitasking and swipe right I can see if it's my Mac or iPad that's doing the handoff. It varies from time to time.

    Not sure if it should work this way, I'm thinking no because I cannot successfully open the webpage while the handshaking device is sleeping . But it does give off the icon. It works the right way all the time so I can't complain too much lol

    I saw this the first time last week. My Mac was asleep but I saw the Safari Handoff icon on my iPhone...so I swiped up just to see what would happen and it gave me a blank page. It's definitely a bug that I'm sure will be ironed out by updates.
