Ever wondered how to use AirDrop or would like to learn more about it. Here is my quick guide.

AirDrop is a really quick way to share photos, documents and even Web Pages between Apple products.

  • On your MacBook
  • Open Finder

  • Make sure the device you are sending to is unlocked
  • Click and drag the item over the AirDrop icon in the top lefthand corner
  • Continue to hold down the mouse cursor and wait for AirDrop to open
  • Drag the item over the device to send to
  • Release the mouse cursor
  • The item will open on the other device
