Most people have more or less bridged the gap in the iPhone display, once a controversial design element introduced with the iPhone X in 2017. But the feelings are harsher when it comes to the MacBook Pro clipping, which has only one own level last year. At least until you see how useful it can be thanks to an application under development by Ian Keenwhich tries to turn part of the missing screen into a feature that makes AirDropping files easier.
In a video posted on Twitter, the developer shows how the app makes the slot flash when the user slides AirDrop-compatible files. The idea is that they can then be dragged and dropped onto the slot itself, at which point a traditional AirDrop sharing window opens, showing devices in the range to which the files can be sent. This is a clean shortcut compared to The official approach of Applewhich usually involves either opening a file and navigating to its Share menu, clicking on a file while holding Control, or navigating to a special AirDrop section in the Finder.
Keen’s app is not yet publicly available, but the developer says he hopes to have a limited version of TestFlight in the next days. Although it is designed to work around a MacBook equipped with slots, he says it should work on a Mac without clippings.
