Access iCloud Tabs from iPhone & iPod touch
Thanks to Safari in Mountain Lion and iOS 6, all open browser tabs are accessable between your Macs and iOS devices through iCloud. Getting to those tabs is easy enough on a Mac and iPad, where clicking the cloud icon opens a list of available tabs, but on the iPhone and iPod touch it’s just slightly hidden:
- Open Safari and tap the bookmarks icon
- Tap “iCloud Tabs” to list all tabs from other devices with the same iCloud account
- Tap any link to open it in on the iPhone or iPod touch
Opening an iCloud Tab on a new device will not close the tab on the source machine, no need to worry about losing a page.
Making a new tab available from iCloud Tabs on the iPhone, iPad, or other Macs, is just a matter of opening a new web page on any of the devices logged into the same Apple ID.
iCloud Tabs make it really easy to continue reading somewhere where you left off, or just to check out a web page later when you have more time or while on the road. Combined with the new full screen Safari mode on iPhone and iPod touch, the web is better on the go than ever before.
Thanks for the tip Cedric
