> Also new is what Apple calls the universal clipboard. This gives users access to a single clipboard that works across iOS and macOS

I hope this only works when the 2 devices are on the same wifi network or have bluetooth enabled, rather than by sending every single thing I copy to an Apple server...

Complete and utter speculation, but if this is implemented well I imagine it is done the same as iMessages, with end to end encryption to all your devices. (Which, last I read about it, has its flaws and isn't a perfect system against state level actors, but it's not the worst.)

Handoff is direct between devices, and this is apparently an extension of Handoff.

Yeah, that would make sense.
