macos – AirDrop working in a single course solely


macOS Large Sur (11.6.1) on a late-2013 MacBook Air.

iOS 15.1 on an iPhone SE (1st technology)

AirDrop works from the MBA to the iPhone, however not from the iPhone to MBA. When making an attempt to ship a photograph from the iPhone to the MBA, the MBA seems on the iPhone as an AirDrop vacation spot (i.e., the MBA is “seen” or “found”). When chosen, the MBA icon reveals “Ready,” however the transmission does not happen.

In the other way (MBA > iPhone) AirDrop works appropriately. Each the MBA and iPhone join and function appropriately, and each are linked to the identical wifi community. Bluetooth is enabled on each, and on the MBA sudo pkill blued has been run within the Terminal, and /Library/Preferences/com.Apple.Bluetooth.plist has been trashed (and mechanically recreated).

Till final week, AirDrop labored bidirectionally, because it has on these two gadgets for years. I can’t determine a selected replace (on both the MBA or the iPhone) after which AirDrop failed.

I’ve restarted each machines, force-restated the iPhone, and signed out of iCloud after which in once more on each. No change is famous.

What else would possibly I strive?
