IT IS TECHNOLOGY that works like magic.
Apple fans are stunned by a new hack so impressive some are convinced it’s fake.
The trick shows how a user can copy and paste files from an iPhone to an iPad with fascinating ease.
The video posted on TikTok by @happymelmelr has nearly 50,000 views and tons of comments from adoring fans.
The original poster insists the video is real – and you can manipulate your devices to mimic the action.
“What you can do is take it to the next level,” Niels van Straaten, an Apple expert, told The Sun while unpacking the viral hack in an exclusive interview.
It’s a combination of some of Apple’s best features working together.
Apple’s universal clipboard tool allows projects to be seamlessly transferred between synced devices – it connects the two devices and makes this feature possible.
The gesture – the pinch and spread that gives this video its flair – is programmed into the device’s operating system.
The gesture is the “copy and paste” half of the viral trick.
