Share Photos Between iPhones With AirDrop

If you take a photo of someone with your iPhone and they have an iPhone too, you can immediately share the photo with them using AirDrop. To use AirDrop, you don't need to be on the same Wi-Fi network or have set up anything in advance. The photo sent is the full resolution image. This can be easier than exchanging phones to take pictures of each other or trying to take the same photo twice.

    This feature is tremendous. Thank you for teaching me about it. I will definitely be using it in the future.

    I just got my first iPhone and have sent pictures to my iMac. Picture gets sent and something flashes on my iMac screen that shows a picture has arrived and the little window disappears before I can press “view”. Getting really frustrated because I can’t
    find the pictures I have sent.New to using Air Drop.

    Nancy: If this is your iPhone and your Mac, then instead of using AirDrop you would want to either transfer the files by connecting your phone to your Mac with the cable, running the Photos app, and then importing the photos. Or, use iCloud Photo Library on both devices to make it all automatic. AirDrop is great for sending photos to someone else, but not really for sending to yourself. BTW, those AirDrop photos are probably going to your Downloads folder.
