    Hi, would anyone know the file path to where I can find mp4 files that were airdropped (macOS Sierra 10.12.1) on iOS10?

    I'd like to remove it from my phone too since it's sitting there taking up space. Granted my phone's jacked up to 256GB but I'd like to remove unwanted files there as much as possible.

    Thanks in advance!

    if memory serves me right it should be in your videos folder where the videos taken from the phone are stored

    mm..have you tried connecting your iPhone with your MacBook via wired connection and access the media content of your iPhone via your MacBook's iTunes? It should appear and you can delete it from the library.

    Files that I AirDrop from my iPhone to my MacBook usually end up in the Downloads folder.

    Unless you're using software like Hazel with conditions set in place to automatically transfer files that match a particular criterion to another folder, those videos should be situated inside Downloads. (Go to Folder -> ~/Downloads/)

    Hi everyone, it's not on the photos nor the videos app. ☹️

    I'll try connecting it via iTunes.
