I upgrade my Mac to MacOS High Sierra. I have some problem with this update that is Airdrop stopped working. So, I can’t transfer any data from one device to another one. Somehow, I fixed this issue. Here, I will tell you some solution to resolve this problem.
Method 1: Remove the File
- You just turn off your “Bluetooth”.
- Remove this file on given below : /Library/Preferences/com.apple.Bluetooth.plist
- Then turn on your “Bluetooth”.
Method 2: Remove the Ethernet Cable if you plug
- If you are using Ethernet Cable for your Mac, just unplug the cable.
Method 3: Set Everyone in Airdrop
- It has three levels which are Off, Everyone and Contacts Only. Contacts is complicated than other two. You have to change in to “Everyone”.
- Click “Airdrop” and then click “Everyone”.
Method 4: Search Airdrop
- Go to “Finder” on your device.
- Search and find the “Airdrop”.
Method 5: Restart your Mac
- Launch “Apple Menu”.
- Then Choose “Restart”. After doing that, turn on your Mac.
Method 6: Turn off “Block all Incoming Communications”
- If you want to use Airdrop Mac to Mac, you have to turn off the Block all Incoming Communications in the firewall.
- For that, Launch “Apple” menu -> click “System Preferences -> click “Security & Privacy”.
- Then select “Firewall” -> unselect the “Block all Incoming Communications” -> click “Ok’.
Method 7: Turn on “Wi-Fi”
- On the side menu bar, click “Wi-Fi” and choose “Wi-Fi”.
