Transferring Files from Android Smartphone to Mac or MacBook
1. Since the current MacBook port is using type C, in this tutorial I am using an Android smartphone that supports type C cable too. First, plug one of the ends of the cable into the Android smartphone.
2. Then, plug another cable end to the MacBook.
3. Now, open the notification panel of the Android.
4. On the Silent Notification section, tap Android System USB for file transfer twice.
5. After you are redirected to USB settings, on the USB controlled by section choose the Connected device.
6. On your MacBook open Finder.
7. Click the name of your Android device name
8. Now drag and drop the files from your Android to your MacBook folder.
