    Specs:
    MBA mid-2013 1.3GHz i5, 4GB 1600MHz DDR3, Intel HD Graphics 5000 1536MB; iPhone 6; iPad Air2, 64GB
    Airdrop Mavericks to iPad mini
    Each device is set and enabled for Airdrop, but I don't "see" the iPad mini in my Airdrop window. What am I doing wrong please?

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    From Apple:

    Note: AirDrop for iOS supports only iOS 7 devices. You cannot use AirDrop on iOS to share with OS X, and OS X users can't use AirDrop to share with iOS devices.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    The simple explanation is that iOS does not allow access to the underlying filesystem which I imagine won't change anytime soon. As such, if you need to share files, you may want to look at something like Dropbox.
