It would be easier to review and check the Word documents we create on our Mac if we can access them on our iPhones. That way, we can also continue our work even if we are out of the house.
One of the most common ways to send files from Mac to iPhone is through AirDrop. Once this feature is enabled on both devices, you can instantly start sending your Word documents.
But here’s the thing, not a lot of people know how to AirDrop a Word document from Mac to iPhone. And if you’re one of them, relax, we will help you out.
Part 1: AirDrop a Word Document from Mac to iPhone
AirDrop is a wireless transfer feature exclusive to IOS devices such as Mac, iPhone, iPad, and more. It uses Bluetooth and WIFI to transfer documents and other files from one device to another.
In order to use this feature, all you need to do is properly enable AirDrop and make sure that both devices are near each other. We showed the detailed tutorial below, check it out.
On your iPhone, swipe down on the right corner of the screen, and long press on the WIFI icon. Next, tap AirDrop and select Everyone. Be sure to open the WIFI and Bluetooth features as well.
On your Mac, open the Finder app and tick AirDrop. You should see your iPhone on the screen.
Next, open another window on the Finder app, locate your target Word document, and drag it toward the receiving device on the AirDrop window. When it’s done, you can exit AirDrop and check the files in the default folder.
If you plan to transfer multiple documents, you may also select them all, and drag them to the AirDrop window. The transfer speed will depend on the size of the files. If you move large-sized documents, you need to wait for a while.
Although AirDrop is easy to use and can be accessed directly on both Mac and iPhone, this feature has some disadvantages.
Because it is a wireless transfer, there is a chance that the quality of your data might be affected due to connection errors. The documents you will receive may be incomplete, there might be some details/data that are not transferred successfully. And it will be such a hassle if this happens.
To avoid this, we found an amazing alternative that you can try. Check out the next part.
