What is AirDrop?

AirDrop is a feature that allows you to wirelessly transfer files (such as photos, videos and documents) between Apple devices, like iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers. It works using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology to create a temporary, secure connection between the devices and to transfer the files quickly and easily without the need for cables, email, or any other special apps.

To use AirDrop, turn it on in the settings of your device, choose the file you want to share and select the device you want to send it to. The other person will receive a notification asking if they want to accept the file. When accepted the file is transferred immediately.
