Transfer files instantly without sacrificing quality! AirDrop with iPhones & iPads

How to AirDrop files from your iPhone or iPad

You can AirDrop files from any iPhone or iPad app that includes the built-in Share sheet, and you can share with anyone, and any of their devices, that show up in the Share sheet.

  1. Open the app that you want to share something from (e.g. Photos).

  2. Select the item you want to share.

Use it between iPhones and iPads, you can AirDrop photos, videos, contacts, Passbook passes, Voice Memos, Map location, and any and everything else that appears on a Share sheet

1. Tap the share button (looks like a box with an arrow pointing up, or sometimes just the word "Share").

2. Tap the intended recipient's avatar when it appears in the AirDrop row.

People around you with AirDrop ON will pop up to Share with them!

Because AirDrop shows your picture for any and all contacts, if you're trying to AirDrop to someone with multiple devices, you could see their picture multiple times in the Sheet. You will see their device name, however, which should make sure you pick the right one.

How to troubleshoot AirDrop on iPhone and iPhone

If contacts don't show up in the AirDrop interface, try these solutions, in order:

  • Toggle Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi off and back on, or toggle Airplane Mode on and off to reset the connections.

  • Turn off Instant Hotspot to free up the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections.

  • Temporarily switch to Everyone to remove any chance of contact mismatch.
