In this lesson for macOS Mojave, I look at how to share files between an iOS device and your Mac using AirDrop.
Opening AirDrop on the Mac
To open AirDrop on the Mac, open a Finder window. In the sidebar will be AirDrop by default. When you select this, Airdrop will open. From there you will see any devices the Mac see Toward the bottom of the list will be the options. You can select if you want AirDrop on at all, if you want only your contacts to see your computer, or if you want everyone to see your computer.
Sharing Files via AirDrop
When you have the AirDrop folder open, and you see a device, such as an iPhone, just drag the file you want to share on to that device. The other device will receive an alert requesting you to accept the file. If you do not see your other device, make sure AirDrop is on in the other device, your contact is in the other device’s contacts, or it is set to see everyone.
When they want to share a file with your Mac, they share the file via AirDrop on the iPhone or iPad and then they will see the computer. Again, if they do not see your iPad or iPhone, make sure AirDrop is on in the other device, your contact is in the other device’s contacts, or it is set to see everyone.
