How to Receive AirDrop on Macbook

When you receive a file, you can choose to accept or save. If you’re sending files from one device to another like from your iPhone to your Mac, and you’re signed in to iCloud using the same Apple ID on both devices, the items are automatically received and saved.

If the sender can’t see your Mac, make sure you set your Mac to allow others to send files using AirDrop. In an AirDrop notification on your Mac, click the Accept pop-up menu, then choose an option. Look for the item in the Downloads folder or the app where the item is stored.

Open the Mac, click the Finder icon in the Dock to open a Finder window.
In the Finder sidebar, click AirDrop.
In the AirDrop window, click the “Allow me to be found by” pop-up menu.
