    How to see Cloud Clipboard sync working on iPhone?


    I have my iPhone linked to my desktop Win10 computer, and have noticed that the Cloud Clipboard should work on my phone.
    I'm sure it is obvious, but can someone tell me how to see the clipboard on my iPhone?

    Sorry, I am not on version 1809 yet, but have a look here to see if it makes any sense.

    " The problem with the feature is that it only really works with Windows 10 devices, so if you have an Android phone or an iPhone, you have no way of accessing your PC’s clipboard from your phone."

    Thanks for that. However, neither of these shows how to access the clipboard on other devices. I’m sure I read that phones were included in ‘other devices’.

    How to access the cloud clipboard on the other pc:

    "You don’t need to do anything special—what you copy on one PC will just appear in the Clipboard history on your other PC."
    "Microsoft has promised that this feature will be able to sync your clipboard data to Microsoft’s SwiftKey keyboard for iPhone, iPad, and Android, allowing you to copy something on your PC and easily paste it into any app on your phone. However, this feature hasn’t been added to the SwiftKey keyboard app yet."

    Ah, thanks. That may explain it. So, this will only be usable if using the Swiftkey keyboard on iPhone? Didn’t know that was a MS product!

    Cool. So there won't be a separate "cloud clipboard" app for Android it will be integrated in SwiftKey?

    Was just playing with SwiftKey today and trying to get used to it. Also the MS launcher. Hard to switch though.
