How to Use macOS Mojave Continuity Camera?

STEP ONE, carefully check out all the listed requirements below again and again even if you have done this for a third time:

1 Wireless Connection Requirements:

* Strong and the SAME WIFI connection
* Bluetooth turned on for both Mac computer and iOS 12 devices

2. System requirements:

* macOS Mojave official complete version;
* iOS 12 official complete version;
Reported by CNET macOS Mojave/iOS 12 beta testers that if you are using beta versions, your Continuity Camera can only work with partial Apple's own apps like Mail, Notes, Pages, ruling out Finder, Keynote and Numbers.

3. Authentication requirement:

*Both your devices should be signed into the SAME Apple ID for them to rightfully and safely exchange data.
Note that Continuity Camera DOES NOT require your iPhone being unlocked before you initiate the photo-taking or document-scanning on MacBook. IPhone camera taking photos won't require you to unlock iPhone iOS devices s ince they natively do not have to.

4. Limited Apps that supports Continuity Camera:

Continuity Camera currently works only with Apple's own apps. Third party apps are blooming to catch up. Applications that work with continuity camera are Finder, Mail, Notes, Pages 7.2, Keynote 8.2, Numbers 5.2, TextEdit and Messages. Contacts and calendars are out of the list. Note that, we noticed that Apple has forgotten to list Stickers on its official website, and it does supports continuity camera seamlessly.

STEP TWO, open the app that supports continuity camera, for eg. TextEdit, and right click on the text cursor to call up a menu, and you will see "Take Photo" and "Scan Documents" options. And here is when we will meet continuity camera issues.

1. Take Photo option opened the Camera app on your iPhone
2. Scan Documents option opens the Camera app and will find the edges of a receipt or document and create a scan, which is saved as a PDF.
