How to use AirDrop on iOS 13
September 30, 2019

It’s easier if you have the new iPhone.

AirDrop is Apple’s way of sending media between iOS devices and MacBooks. It uses its own Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections so that it can easily send any file no matter how big it is. 

With iOS 13, that process has been streamlined. Here is a handy step-by-step guide on how to use AirDrop on devices running iOS 13:

First, head to Settings

Make sure Bluetooth is turned on and discoverable

You can also access the Bluetooth settings in the Control Center

From there, you can check if AirDrop connection is turned on

If it is not, simply select ‘Everyone’ or ‘Contacts Only’ depending on your preference

Now head to the file you want to share. In this case, we’re sharing a wallpaper so head to the Photos app and locate the image that you want to share. Tap the sharing menu on the lower left

A new menu option will now let you access AirDrop. The badge on top of the icon denotes how many users are currently available for you to share the file.

Tap AirDrop and you will be taken to a device list where you can choose a receiver.

If you own a device with an Apple U1 chip like the iPhone 11, it can be used to detect another similar close to you. Simply point the arrow towards the other device and it should appear on the devices list.
