    Hey all I'm new here to iMore.

    Just looking for some help. I've used AirPlay many times before from MacBook to MacBook. Just bought an iPhone 6 a few days ago and trying to transfer some music and pictures from my MacBook on here but having some trouble.

    MacBook: OS X Yosemite
    iPhone: 8.2

    I turn my AirPlay/Bluetooth on discoverable for everyone from my iPhone and open the AirPlay on my MacBook but neither one can find the other. I've tried resetting both devices but still nothing.

    Any suggestions?

    ...transfer some music and pictures from my MacBook...
    That's not what you use AirPlay for... you use iTunes to sync music- and iCloud Photos to handle the photos... http://www.apple.com/support/iphone/syncing/

    Oops I thought you could use AirPlay to sync anything?

    Nope. Keith is correct. iTunes is the only way.

    This is what you can do with AirPlay... https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204289

    This is what you can do with AirDrop - https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201369 -- that can be used to transfer things between compatible Apple devices...
