It's easy to stay connected with your friends and family with Airdrop on your iPhone 12! Learn how to turn it on and start sharing in this helpful article.
Airdrop is a feature on iPhone that allows you to quickly and easily share files between nearby Apple devices. It works by creating an ad-hoc Wi-Fi network between two or more compatible devices, allowing you to transfer files, photos, videos, and other data with a few taps.
Activating Airdrop on an iPhone 12 is a relatively simple process that requires only a few steps. Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Turn on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
The first thing you’ll need to do is make sure your Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are turned on. To do this, go to the Settings app, then tap on “Bluetooth” and “Wi-Fi”. Make sure both have a checkmark next to them.
Step 2: Activate Airdrop
Once your Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are turned on, go to the “Control Center”. You can do this by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. Once in the Control Center, tap on the “Airdrop” icon. This will open a menu with three options: “Receiving Off”, “Contacts Only”, and “Everyone”. Choose the option that is most appropriate for your situation.
Step 3: Wait for Devices to Connect
Once you’ve chosen the right setting for your Airdrop, you’ll need to wait for compatible devices to connect. Airdrop is designed to work with other Apple devices, so if you’re trying to connect with an Android device, it won’t work. Once a compatible device is within range, you’ll see it appear in the Airdrop list.
Step 4: Transfer Files
Once you see the compatible device in the list, you can start transferring files. To do this, simply select the file or files you want to send and then tap the “Share” button. You’ll then see the Airdrop icon, which you can tap to open the Airdrop menu. Select the device you want to send the file to, and it will be sent instantly.
Step 5: Disconnect
When you’re done transferring files, make sure to disconnect your devices. To do this, go back to the Airdrop menu and tap the “Disconnect” button. This will disconnect the devices and turn off Airdrop.
Activating Airdrop on an iPhone 12 is a quick and easy process that can save you time when you need to transfer files quickly. Just make sure to turn on your Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and select the correct settings for your Airdrop, and you’ll be able to quickly and easily share files with other compatible devices.
