All you should know about Apple AirDrop

About AirDrop

AirDrop, a secure, ad-hoc Wi-Fi transfer protocol created by Apple, began life on OS X Lion as a way to easily move files from Mac to Mac and person to person. It was created specifically for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and released as part of iOS 7.

AirDrop makes file sharing a lot easier, especially for families with a lot of Apple products. The ease of transferring files to your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Mac via AirDrop means you can quickly share photos, videos, websites, locations, and more with people nearby with an Apple device.

To share content with AirDrop, both people need one of these devices using iOS 7 or later, or a Mac with OS X Yosemite or later:

  • • iPhone 5/5s; iPhone 6/6 Plus; iPhone 6s/ 6s Plus
  • • iPad Pro
  • • iPad (4th generation) or later
  • • iPad mini or later
  • • iPod touch (5th generation) or later
