What’s the easiest way to transfer a file from a Mac to an iPhone?

How can I transfer a file from my Mac to my iPhone?
Actually without iTunes, you can also transfer a file from Mac to iPhone. Try AirMore, this is a free App, and no need client in your Mac. Just a few steps for you:
1. Download and install "AirMore" in your iPhone;
2. Open "AirMore.net" in your Mac, and connect iPhone to Mac by scanning the QR code, it is wireless;
3. You will see the "Files" icon at the bottom of left bar, click it you will enter the "Files"interface, and there is a "Upload Files" button above, click it then you can choose the file you want to transfer from your Mac, and transfer it to your iPhone.
Quite easy, isn't it?

You have to add the files to your iTunes library first, then sync with your iPad. You also have to set up your iPad in iTunes so that it will sync video files.
The only thing I would add to Aiden's response is depending on type of a file you want to transfer, you can also use iTunes which syncs up pictures, music, and other media files.
Airdrop is probably the easiest way for most files:

"AirDrop is Apple’s technology for sharing files across devices. You can use it to transfer files from one Mac to another, and also use it to transfer files from a Mac to an iOS device, or from one iOS device to another. On your Mac, choose Go > AirDrop in the Finder, and then, on your iOS device, make sure AirDrop is activated in the Control Center (swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access this setting). You can choose to allow transfers from Contacts Only or from Everyone; it’s best to choose the former.

Your iOS device needs to be awake for AirDrop to be active. On the Mac, drag a file onto the icon for your iOS device in the AirDrop window. On your iOS device, you’ll see a menu offering to open the file; this menu lists the apps that can open the file type.

For some types of files, AirDrop isn’t very helpful. For example, if I try to send an AAC audio file from my Mac to my iPhone, the latter offers to open it with apps such as Voice Memos, Evernote, Dropbox, etc., but not with the iOS Music app, or other music player apps on my device."
