If your iPhone storage is almost full, you can free it up by deleting photos, videos, or the other files. Of course, most of the files are important, so all of it cannot be removed without having a backup. If you still have plenty of space on your Mac, you can store the files there as a backup. There are many methods to transfer files from iOS devices to Mac computer, like using a USB cable, iCloud, or AirDrop. But, the easiest and faster way is using the AirDrop feature. It allows you to share photos from iPhone to Mac wirelessly with ease. You will be able to transfer photos, videos, etc between Apple devices in no time.
How To Share Photos From iPhone To Mac Wirelessly
Enable AirDrop On Mac
It’s not difficult to share photos from iPhone to Mac wirelessly using AirDrop feature. First, launch Finder on Mac and click AirDrop on the left sidebar. If you can’t find AirDrop once you open Finder, you can click Go on the Finder menu bar.

For Your Information: AirDrop Requirements
AirDrop is a very useful feature to share files between Apple devices faster and much easier. You can share files without using any cable or a series of complicated steps. However, it also has some limits. MacBook Pro late 2008. MacBook Air late 2010, iMac early 2009, etc, can only use AirDrop to transfer files from Mac to Mac. Thus, you won’t be able to share photos from iPhone to Mac wirelessly using AirDrop. To transfer files from macOS device to iPhone or iPad or iPod, you need a Mac from 2012 or later and iOS devices using iOS 7 or later.
