Use AirDrop to send files to devices near you

AirDrop lets you send documents, photos, webpages, map locations, and more to anyone near you, wirelessly. You can send and receive items between Mac computers and iOS devices that are on the same network.

AirDrop uses Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to transfer items between devices. Most likely, you’ve already got Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled on your Mac. If you don’t, AirDrop will prompt you to turn them on when you try to send an item.

If you want to receive files from other devices, you just need to specify who’s allowed to send items to your device.
