Most iPhone users are likely to have a Mac. If you are one such user who has several Apple devices, how do you move files between your iOS and OS X devices?
There are a number of solutions to move your file between the different devices.
This guide will provide you some innovative and some app-based solutions to do so.
This is the simplest way to move small-sized files between your devices. Send an email to yourself with the file in the attachment. Especially if you have iOS 8, your message will appear on both the devices.
Use the iTunes File Sharing feature to move files between your iOS and OS X devices. This method can be used only if your devices have an iTunes file sharing app, which is usually the case with most apps from Apple.
You can sync your device with Dropbox and have all your photos automatically backed up. You can also sync the cloud storage system to your Mac.
If you have iOS 8, it will have an “Open In” option. This will allow you to add other files to your Dropbox account. Once the files are uploaded, just sync your Mac with your Dropbox account and you can access the files.
Scribe allows you to share your clipboard between your iOS and Mac devices. However, you will have to allow connectivity through Bluetooth LE.
There are a few other apps that can make it possible to move files between your Apple Devices.
AirDrop and DeskConnect are two commonly used ones. Both are free to use and allow easier movement of files.
It is worth considering that despite offering some of the most advanced tech products, Apple has certain restrictions when it comes to moving files between its own devices.
However, you could use the above-mentioned methods to work around the restrictions.
