I have an iPhone 8 Plus and a MacBook Air early 2014. I've been trying to use airdrop, but my iPhone is not finding my computer.

Both devices Wi-Fi is on and connected, as is Bluetooth. On my MacBook I can see the AirDrop screen, but that's it. I need help figuring out what to do in order to airdrop from my phone to the computer. enter image description here

Also, it's not clear from your question as to whether you've actually tried transferring a file from your iPhone to your MBA? – Monomeeth Nov 14 '17 at 4:59
  • I’m having exact same issue I think same models too funnily enough.. I am operating on OS X Sierra 10.12.6 – Angel Nov 21 '17 at 3:43

I'm now 100% sure, but because of the old operating system on the computer, there could be some compatibility issues. If your able to I would suggest upgrading to El Captain, macOS Sierra or if your computer can support it, macOS High Sierra. You can upgrade it via the App Store.
