Hi kat,

Wondering how can you send your photos from phone to your Mac? AirDrop or USB Cable?

AirDrop is by far the simplest and fastest way to move photos from one of your Apple devices to another. When you use AirDrop your phone or MacBook utilizes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to transfer media files. To do this, swipe up on the locked screen of your iPhone to open the Control Center, and tap AirDrop.

Or you can use Photos app to do so. This method of moving your iPhone pictures to your MacBook requires the use of a Lightning cable, which is just the cable you use to charge your phone. First, use the cord to connect your phone to your laptop and open the Photos app on your computer – there’s no need to download it, it’s already there by default. Go to Devices and select your iPhone from the list, your phone needs to be unlocked for the next steps. Choose the photos you’d like to transfer and then click Import To and choose the fold where you want to move the photos. Then click Import to finish.

regarding airdrop, you will need a modern version of iOS on the iPhone or iPad, and a modern version of Mac OS on the Mac. so basically, you need to update your devices.
