    Hello all,

    Has anyone gotten an error when trying to connect an iPhone to a Mac? I get a message on my MacBook that my iPhone is not compatible. Seems a little strange being that they are both apple products. I was trying to Bluetooth myself some files. I tried airdrop, however I am then told I need to d/l a third party app to open the files.

    I appreciate and thank you in advance for any assistance or guidance.

    It's like there's an echo or something...

    The issue is that there is no need to connect an iPhone and Mac via Bluetooth. You transfer files via airdrop or possibly iTunes.
    I have never been able to pair my rMBP (2012) with any of my iPhones. Or if they pair briefly, they quickly disconnect.

    Well that makes sense. I was successful when using the airdrop. I just thought umm how is it not compatible, but the alternate features such as airdrop make Bluetooth unneeded for file transfers. Makes sense ... Thanks
