With Yosemite, Apple has tried to make it easier for you to move files between devices. This is something we’ve been able to do with File Sharing between Macs and PCs, but now we have the option to move files between Macs and iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches running iOS 8. The means for doing this is AirDrop and this is how it works.
On your iOS device running iOS 8 or later, swipe up from the bottom of the screen. You’ll see an AirDrop entry. Tap on it and you have three options—Off, Contacts Only, and Everyone. Off means, of course, that this device will be invisible to others using AirDrop. If someone who’ve you added as a contact on your iOS device would like to transfer a file, they can when you select Contacts Only. And the Everyone option lets anyone use it. We’ll choose Everyone. Now let’s move to the Mac.
