Personally I just love this feature: Sharing the clipboard between all your iOS and macOS devices (when logged in with the same AppleID of course).
It utilizes iCloud to allow you for example to copy text on your iPhone and paste it on your Mac.

As mentioned: not everybody is equally thrilled about this feature and this how you disable if to a specific device:

MacOS (Mac)

System Preferences -> General -> at the bottom uncheck “Allow Handoff between this mac and your iCloud devices

iOS (iPhone/iPad)

Go to Settings -> General -> Airdrop & Handoff -> uncheck "Handoff"
