File Transfer via Bluetooth

iOS devices are not compatible with Bluetooth File Transfer Profile (FTP) and never have been. The Bluetooth implementation on iOS devices is for handsfree calling, streaming music and syncing wearable accessories, not for file transfer which Apple considers to be a slippery slope towards copyright infringement of iTunes content. The easiest ways to send a document, picture or video to a Samsung device is via email or use of a Dropbox folder. Sending a music file is only possible by syncing the iOS device with iTunes on a PC or Mac, and then sending the music file from the computer.

Google implements all Bluetooth profiles in Android.
File Transfer Profile is available in Mac but pointless as it is significantly slower than Wifi.

If you actually read your own link, you'd realise that solution is for Mac (OSX) and not iOS devices.

Yep. The hubris shown by some regular posters on this board frequently outweighs the quality level of their advice. It can be cringeworthy but also quite amusing.

Perhaps it'd be best to take a step back and look at what the actual problem OP is trying to solve is. If it's keeping photos in sync between devices then there are excellent apps available like Google Photos, if it's just the odd file then there is Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive etc available

Oh so that nice apple help page I found with the EXACT information wasn't what you were wanting and you are quite ungrateful for my time spent?

Go pay someone to help huh?

yes you will have to think for yourself, we have yet to develop the technology to inject instructions directly into your mind.
crikey some people expect miracles.

I'd tell you to RTFM but Samsungs don't come with comprehensive manuals

Yeah. Not impressed!

Jeez some people are weird.

So you'd prefer if, when you ask a question, you get ZERO answers because why would anyone post in this forum for fear of having the poster jump down their neck?

At a guess, I'm going to say that you putting "Google worked for me" probably made the poster feel as if you were insinuating they were dumb for not having done the obvious thing and consulted Google first before posting. Not that I would think that way personally, but I can see how someone might.
