AirDrop is a revolutionary way to share files. AirDrop uses both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, making it possible for two devices that are usually in the same location or within 30 feet of each other to exchange information without any sort of connection cable necessary.

Limiting AirDrop to only your contacts may be a more secure option, but it is also limited in its convenience. You can avoid this problem by choosing everyone for those occasions where you have frequent interactions with different people and need easy access to the files they share.

AirDrop is a valuable tool, but it can also be dangerous if you're not careful. Make sure to only accept files from people you trust.

AirDrop from iPhone or iPad

  1. Open the app that you want to AirDrop from on your iPhone or iPad. To send a photo, you would open the Photos app.
  2. Select the photo, video, or file you want to send. (you can select several at one time)
  3. Tap the Share button. (Box icon with an arrow pointing up) 
  4. Next, tap the AirDrop icon, which appears first in the list of icons.
  5. Tap the icon for the Mac you want to send the file to. The icon will say Sent when the AirDrop is done sending the files.
