Why is it so difficult to Bluetooth these two? They are both Apple products and it seems inconceivable that it won't work. I have tried several solutions posted online and can link but there is no data flow between them. Anyone solved this?

MacBook Pro with Mavericks & iPhone 4s

  • thnx Lance. The 2 have paired on the surface of it but no file transfers are possible . The error is 'does not have the necessary services'. My old Sony could do this so why not an Apple product? I simply want to send a file from mac to iphone – kev thompson Sep 14 '14 at 14:21

iPhone does not support Bluetooth File Exchange.


You could connect together using WiFi rather than Bluetooth by creating an ad-hoc network on you MacBook Pro


Then use an app like Feem to transfer the files


I agree that Bluetooth solution should be available.
