Send Link to Connected Devices on Safari browser

We are addicted to our mobile phones these days. Everyone carrying a phone in their hand is pretty common. We spend almost half of the day on the phone.

Often when we travel in public transport like the metro, trains, buses, etc., we read or check social media while commuting to our destination. We might find an interesting article to share with our friends. In such cases, we can share the link using various mediums.

We keep that article either bookmarked or transfer it to the reading list. When we can access our Macbook, we can forward or send the link without issues using AirDrop.

What if you want to directly share the link from your iPhone to your Mac computer? In that case, you can use a built-in feature known as AirDrop. The Safari browser supports AirDrop, which can help send the link within the Apple ecosystem.
