    Hi!

    Im new to the macbook world.
    I have a iphone 5, and i can't use airdrop with the macbook.
    The iPhone and mac is on the same wifi, but they will not connect.
    When i try iPhone to another iPhone, then it connects, but it will not connect to my macbook.

    Any ideas how i could use airdrop between the mac and iPhone?
    Be happy for replays :)

    I'm guessing it will be enabled at some point for smaller file sizes. Give it 6 months.

    You do realize that there's about a million OS X filetypes that the iPhone can do absolutely nothing with?

    Airdrop between Mac OS and iOS is far from mature, much less practical, to say nothing of its marketability.

    It's stupid to give it the same name! Shame on apple.
