    27" iMac i5, 3.2 GHz, iPad 3, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, Yosemite
    It should work like this:

    Just turn on AirDrop on both devices. You should then be able to "see" you new iPad Air from your Mac. Drag and drop whatever files you wish to send to the iPad on the AirDrop icon on your Mac. Your iPad Air will then ask permission to receive them. Of course make sure you're only sending those files that you can actually utilize on the iPad.

    HI,

    Thanks for your reply.

    The problem is that I have got airdrop switched on both devices and cannot see the ipad on my mbp.

    I found out that some are saying that this feature is not available to connect ipad tp mbp. not understanding why. Even i tried to use blutooth to send a mp file on ipad from my mbc. It says the device does not have the neccessary services.

    Can you help please

    Looks like I gave you some wrong information. I had read that it would be supported, however, according to Apple, Air Drop between iOS and OS X is not supported yet.

    Might try an app called Air Doc
    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.
