The other user will receive an alert with a preview of the content you want to share, and can either accept or decline. If the other user accepts, they'll get the content in the app you sent it from. For example, photos will appear in the Photos app and websites will open in Safari.
You can share content from apps such as Photos, Safari, Contacts, and more.
Use Control Center to turn AirDrop on or off and control whom you can share content with.
Swipe up from the bottom of your screen to show ControlCenter.
Choose one of these options:
Off: Turns off AirDrop.
Contacts Only: Only your contacts can see your device.
Everyone: All nearby iOS devices using AirDrop can see your device.
What you need:
To share content with AirDrop, both people need one of these devices using iOS 7 or later, or a Mac with OS X Yosemite:
iPhone 5 or later, iPad (4th generation or later), iPad mini, iPod touch (5th generation)
You also need to turn on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. If you want to share with your contacts, sign in to your iCloud account.
