My son has just completed a project using “Book Creator” on his iPad. I then needed to print it… Somehow…
My printer is an older model Canon - not Airplay savvy, so - no go, despite being a “shared printer” on my MacPro.
AirPlay simply does not work between the 2 devices - Tried the Terminal command that’s meant to help… no go… Thinking possibly the machine has a non compatible BluTooth card… No idea. Booted in High Sierra in case that helped, but no change. (Ok, maybe the flat appearance is growing on me… Think I’m ready to transition…)
Handoff and the other one - not compatible with 2010 MacPro.
Ok… Mmm… So - to upload his stop-motion videos to YouTube, I connected the iPad to the Mac directly by cable, then plucked the videos from iPhoto after saving them from iMotion… Maybe that will work - but in iTunes…? Well, I can SEE the file when I save a copy to iBooks (pdf), but cannot print / save to my Mac!
Not having email set up on the devices, nor iMessage means they are ruled out. Also iCloud - I don’t touch that thing…
So that leaves me…
Ahhhhh - iPhone 5s - compatible with AirDrop! So iPad -> iPhone -> eMail.
2 hours of my life I’m not getting back later… success.
Yes, Apple… It just works… (so long as you have new printers, and new computers, and OSes…)
(Now have to boot back into Mavericks to get the file…)
