Tuesday's Tech Tip

By: David Durnil

November 17, 2015 - Why aren't you using AirDrop?

Do you want to share items from off of your iPad or iPhone with students? Are you tired of using e-mails and text messages to get that out? Why not try using the AirDrop function on your iPhone?

What is AirDrop?

Share content with AirDrop from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.


With AirDrop, you can share photos, videos, websites, locations, and more with people nearby with an Apple device.


To turn on AirDrop

Use Control Center to turn AirDrop on or off and control whom you can share content with.

  1. Swipe up from the bottom of your screen to open Control Center.
  2. Tap AirDrop.
  3. 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.

Do you have an idea that would work in Tuesday's Tech Tips?
