    Apple has decided that your Mac cannot use AirDrop with iOS devices. – At0mic Aug 8 '16 at 14:20

From Apple's support document:

  • Make sure that both devices have AirDrop turned on and are within 30 feet (9 meters) of each other.

  • If you're sending to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:

    • Your Mac needs to be a 2012 or newer model with OS X Yosemite or later.

    • The iOS device must be using iOS 7 or later andhave Personal Hotspot turned off in Settings > Cellular.
