Step 1: First off, you need to download Android File Transfer.
Step 2: Next, you continue to unlock your Android device.
Step 3: Now, connect your Android device to your Mac using a USB cable. This allows your device to launch Android File Transfer automatically. If not, you simply launch it manually.

- Here, you must choose theconnection type. You can choose to transfer media files or whatever variation of that phrase your Android device says.

By using an SD card in your Android device, you can easily choose to drop files onto the SD card right in Android File Transfer. You can simply drag from Android File Transfer to a Finder window or your desktop to transfer files from your Android device to your Mac in the exact same way.
Use Google Drive
In my opinion, the next best option that helps you transfer file is to save stuff to Google Drive. You can save to Google Drive on your Mac by doing the following steps:
Step 1: First off, you need to go a web browser or download the Google Drive app.
Step 2: Next, you continue to log in on Google.com.

Step 7: Lastly, you have to click Open or hit enter on your keyboard.
Now, you can see your file or folder will upload to Google Drive. Depending on how big your upload is, this can take a few minutes
Besides, you can only drag files or folders from a Finder window into the Google Drive window on your browser. Actually, Google Drive becomes another folder on your device. So just drag it into the Google Drive folder when you want to do something available on your Android device.
