AirDrop lets you quickly transfer files between iPhones, iPads and Macs without using wi-fi or cellular data. AirDrop uses bluetooth low energy to broadcast, discover, and negotiate connections, and point-to-point Wi-Fi to transfer information. That is why sharing photos with AirDrop is so great, because it is power efficient, fast, and secure.
We mountain biked through New Zealand with a group of 12 totally awesome people we’d never met. As you can imagine, the scenery was breathtaking! It became redundant passing camera phones around at every stop. Instead, we used our own phones to take photos of one another throughout the day. Once in the van to our next destination, we all shared our photos with AirDrop.
We turned on our AirDrop after each ride and dropped photos to one another on the way to the next destination. (Unfortunately, there was one Android user that couldn’t partake- sorry droiders! We love you, we do!)
WiFi and cellular service aren’t necessary when using Airdrop. Phone numbers are irrelevant, and the iPhone has the ability to Airdrop multiple full resolution photos at once! Members of our group were using different iPhone carriers from other countries, doesn’t matter, Airdrop doesn’t use cellular data.
I LOVE THIS FEATURE!
Airdrop is the perfect solution to transferring high resolution photos from iPhone or iPad to Macbook Laptop or Desktop.
When someone shares something with you using AirDrop, you see an alert with a preview. You can tap Accept or Decline.
If you tap Accept, the AirDrop will come through within the same app it was sent from. For example, photos appear in the Photos app and websites open in Safari. App links open in the App Store so you can download or purchase the app.
That’s it! That is how you share photos with AirDrop!
We aren’t printing photos for today, but for tomorrow. Download the Persnickety Box App and simply swipe photos into a keepsake story box each month or check out the archival photo products below from Persnickety. A female owned and operated boutique lab in Utah.
