What's New in iOS 7: AirDrop [Video]
Apple has introduced AirDrop in iOS 7, a new way to share files with other iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch owners nearby.
Sending a photo or a document to someone via text or email is fine. But if that someone is right next to you, a text or an email suddenly feels like too many steps. Enter AirDrop for iOS. It lets you quickly and easily share photos, videos, contacts — and anything else from any app with a Share button. Just tap Share, then select the person you want to share with. AirDrop does the rest using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. No setup required. And transfers are encrypted, so what you share is highly secure.
To enable AirDrop swipe up from the bottom of the display to access Control Center. Tap the AirDrop button then choose to make device visible to Everyone or just your Contacts.
Share a File:
Tap the Share button in any application that supports AirDrop. Along the top of the share sheet you will see the file you selected. You can swipe left or right to select additional files for sharing. Below the file selector you will see a row of circular icons representing other users nearby. Tap an icon to send your selected files to that user.
Accept a File:
If you are sent a file from another user, an alert will popup on your display asking you to accept or decline the transfer. Tap accept to approve the transfer. Once it's complete, the file will be opened in its appropriate application.
