How to AirDrop from Mac to iPhone
  • Go to the Finder and open a new window.

  • Click on AirDrop in the sidebar of the window.

  • You should see your iPhone in the window — it’s displayed using the name of the AppleID it’s connected to. If there is more than one device with AirDrop turned on, you’ll see them all.

  • Open another Finder window and drag the file you want to transfer from its folder onto the icon of the iPhone you want to share it with.

  • Drop it onto the icon.

  • On the iPhone, you should see a menu appear asking which app you want to use to open the file. Tap the app you want to use.

  • The files will now open in that app.

You can also share files using AirDrop via the Share menu in any macOS app that support it. Just click on the Share button, choose AirDrop, then select your iPhone.

How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac

  • Tap your Mac.
