Question: Handoff not working on iPhone X and iOS11

Hi All,


I've noticed that Handoff doesn't seem to be working on my iPhone X and iMac. Both are up-to-date with the latest OS software.


Any suggestions on how I should try and fix this?


TIA

iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014), macOS Sierra (10.12.5)

Ok. Just to complete this discussion, signing out of iCloud on my iPhone X and iMac and restarting both, and signing back in to both, got Handoff working correctly...

Ok, which app are you trying to use Handoff?

Example: Apps that work with Handoff include Mail, Maps, Safari, Reminders, Calendar, Contacts, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, and numerous third-party apps.

Which one did you use?


Check list here:

Use Handoff with any Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch that meets the Continuity system requirements. Handoff works when your devices are near each other and set up as follows:

  • Each device is signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID.
    To see the Apple ID used by Apple Watch, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone, then go to General > Apple ID.
  • Each device has Bluetooth turned on.
  • Each Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch has Wi-Fi turned on.
  • Each device has Handoff turned on:
    • On Mac, choose Apple menu () > System Preferences, then click General. Select “Allow Handoff between this Mac and your iCloud devices.”
    • On iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, go to Settings > General > Handoff, then turn on Handoff.
    • On Apple Watch, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone, then tap General and turn on Enable Handoff.
      Apple Watch supports handing off from watch to iPhone only.

Thanks! I couldn't get Handoff to work between my iPhone and iPad on iOS 11.3, and although it was a pain, that worked.
