    Wow.

    Yesterday I installed the newly available Yosemite Beta 4.

    So, imagine my surprise when I am sitting here and as my iPhone rings, a
    banner pops up on my iMac desktop telling me that there is a caller (complete
    with caller ID).

    I click on the banner and answer the call from my desktop. I carry on a
    conversation with a friend. It's clear and distinct.

    This kind of compatibility is one of the big reasons why I switched back to
    the iPhone from Android. Really enjoying my iPhone 6 Plus and features like
    these.

    lol, yeah its pretty cool when you see it first time...especially when you realise that it isn't just a gimmick and that it works brilliantly. I have been using it with a 4s ever since the DPs came out and its worked perfectly.

    You know that you can call directly from Contacts, Safari (where ever you see a phone number), mail and maps to name a few. When you do it from maps, it actually puts the map location in your Recent calls list.

    Activate, thanks for that information. Had no idea I could place calls directly from my contacts. Will try that.
