AirDrop (iPhone 5 or later) lets you share your photos, videos, interesting websites, locations, and 
other items wirelessly with other nearby iOS 7 devices that support AirDrop. AirDrop requires 
an iCloud account, and transfers info using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. You must be on the same Wi-Fi 
network, or within approximately 30 feet (10 meters) of the other device. Transfers are encrypted 
for security.
Share an item using AirDrop. Tap Share or  , then tap AirDrop and tap the name of a nearby 
AirDrop user. AirDrop is also available in Control Center—just swipe up from the bottom edge of 
the screen.
Receive AirDrop items from others. Swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen to open 
Control Center. Tap AirDrop, then choose to receive items from Contacts only or from Everyone. 
You can accept or decline.
Add photo or video to a shared stream. Tap iCloud (a sharing option in the Photos app), add a 
comment if you like, choose a stream (or create a new one), then tap Post.
Use Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, or Vimeo. Sign in to your account in Settings. The Twitter, Facebook, 
Flickr, and Vimeo sharing buttons take you to the appropriate setting if you’re not yet signed in.
Note:  While you’re composing a tweet, the number in the lower-right corner shows the number 
of characters remaining. Attachments use some of a tweet’s 140 characters.
Transfer files
There are several ways to transfer files between iPhone and your computer or other iOS device. If 
you have an app that works with iCloud on multiple devices, you can use iCloud to automatically 
keep the app’s documents up to date across your devices. See 
 on page 17.
Transfer files using iTunes. Connect iPhone to your computer using the included cable. In 
iTunes on your computer, select iPhone, then click Apps. Use the File Sharing section to transfer 
documents between iPhone and your computer. Apps that support file sharing appear in the 
File Sharing Apps list in iTunes. To delete a file, select it in the Documents list, then press the 
Delete key.
You can also view files received as email attachments on iPhone.
Some apps may share content using AirDrop. See 
page 32.
Personal Hotspot
Use Personal Hotspot to share your iPhone Internet connection. Computers can share your 
Internet connection using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or a USB cable. Other iOS devices can share the 
connection using Wi-Fi. Personal Hotspot works only if iPhone is connected to the Internet over 
the cellular data network.
Note:  This feature may not be available with all carriers. Additional fees may apply. Contact your 
carrier for more information.
Share an Internet connection. Go to Settings > Cellular and tap Set Up Personal Hotspot—if it 
appears—to set up the service with your carrier.
