New GoPro hero 5 file transfer from camera to Macbook that doesn't have a USB.

I have a Macbook that doesnt have a USB and I would like to get my photos and videos off my go pro hero 5 and have them on my laptop, but not sure what steps to take.  I have the capture on my iphone, but I rather not use my phone at all.....Any suggestion what software do i need to download that would automatically have the pics and videos automatically load to the computer.

@bobbyb20 - Does your computer have a card reader that you can insert the SD card from the camera (using an adapter) into the computer?

 

If we are able to get your camera connected, using our Quik for Desktop software (download it at https://shop.gopro.com/softwareandapp/quik-%7C-desktop/Quik-Desktop.html) is the best option.

It doesn't have a card reader either.  I am downloading the Quik for desktop now...
