1. Send content from your MacBook Air to another iOS device
I used this feature when planning a family trip to a new destination. After creating the directions in Maps, I clicked the arrow and selected the device I wanted the map to be sent. You can also use AirDrop for this, although I have found that application to be a bit buggy. I am sure Apple will improve upon it.
2. Pause music with your Apple ear buds
Okay, not revolutionary, but very useful anyway. I knew I could do this on an iPad and iPhone, so I just assumed…
3. Access applications in the top toolbar
These are more useful than the extensions you might use in your Chrome broswer. For example, you can clip a screenshot or take audio with Evernote, check your feed or send out a tweet on Twitter, and write a new journal entry in Day One.
4. Tag files in Pages, Keynote, and Numbers
I didn’t really understand why this was helpful, until I opened up Finder to look for a file. Below the different locations for saving content, each tag you have used appears. Click on one, and all files with that tag from the iWorks suite pop up. That can be very useful when working on complex projects.
5. Bring up Notifications with a swipe.
Take two fingers, swipe from the right side to the left on the Touch Pad, and your notifications menu shows up on the side of your screen. This allows you to see all alerts, emails, and updates. You can also engage in any applications you have set up for notifications, such as Messages and Twitter.
