    Didn't know you could do universal control with an iPhone.

    John: You can't. It is between Macs, or Macs and an iPad. Universal Control is using a mouse/trackpad and a keyboard across devices. This video is just about copy and paste. It is "Universal Clipboard" not "Universal Control."

    Okay, so I guess I do not know how to do copy and paste from my Mac to my iPhone. Thanks for the clarification.

    Hei, Gary, Do you know how to disable the recurring permission request to allow paste?

    Cristian: No, there's no way to disable them. At least not in 16.0.

    You have two devices on one screen at 01:20 in video. Can you share how this is done?
    Thanks

    I just upgraded to ventura and despite all the settings being 'on' (I've double checked) this isn't working anymore

    Zaph: Have you tried restarts? If you still can't get it working and need it, the next step would be to contact Apple Support.

    You were correct- restart fixed it
