One of the best features in Mac OS X Yosemite is its capacity to make calls (read more here.) and send SMS form your Mac through the iPhone. This is not done through iMessage and Facetime, yet rather through your telephone’s voice and information plan. You can now send SMS to contacts that don’t have iMessage, and make calls from your Mac (through the iPhone). This gimmick is not empowered as a matter of course, yet it’s not difficult to begin utilizing.

This is what you have to do to get it up and running.

Instructions to join your iphone and your Mac in OS X Yosemite

To begin with, verify your iphone and Mac is joined with the same remote system. There’s no real way to attach the telephone to Ethernet, obviously, so Wi-Fi is the main way your Mac and iphone can talk.

After that, sign in with your icloud account on both gadgets. You probably have this record as of now, yet in the event that you don’t, enlistment is obligatory. There’s no chance to get for the iphone and Mac to impart without being marked into icloud.

Presently, open the Messages application on your Mac. Go to Preferences and, in the window that opens, hit the Accounts tab. You will see icloud recorded among your dynamic records. Verify its chosen, and afterward check the “Empower this record” box and the container alongside your telephone number. Additionally verify that the “Begin new discussions from” drop-down menu has your telephone number chosen.
