How to Use AirDrop iOS 7 to Share Photos, Contacts and Other Files

How to Use AirDrop to Share Photos 

Sharing things became very much easier in the new iOS 7. Apple has decided to add AirDrop, the local neighborhood file-sharing service found in Mac OS X, into the latest version of iOS. With AirDrop, you can share pictures, videos, contacts, and more between two iPhones with no need for a wireless network connection. Instead, it uses an ad-hoc Wi-Fi connection or Bluetooth to share with anyone near your phone.

To use AirDrop, All you have to do is to slide the new Control Center up anywhere from the screen on your device and tap on the AirDrop option. After selecting it, you will get the option to choose either you would like to make yourself discoverable to no one, to your contacts only, or to everyone in your area. If you choose to make yourself discoverable, others can easily send and share files with you. If you want to send something like a picture, just tap on the new Share button, this will take you to the share page where all the users that are connected to AirDrop shown up in.

Another useful feature from AirDrop is sending directions straight from the Maps app. Tapping the share sign will prompt you to either send your current location or directions, and from there you can choose who to share it to from AirDrop.

If anyone send you a file, will show up on your screen. From there, all you have to do is tap Accept and the file will be saved to your device. It’s really very simple.
